Imam ibn ‘Abd al-Barr (r.a.): Jesus (a.s.) on the Nature of Wealth

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

According to Imam Yusuf ibn ‘Abd al-Barr (r.a.), some people once said to Jesus (a.s.), “O Spirit of God, inform us about the nature of wealth.”

He answered, “The possessor of wealth always has one of three qualities: he either gains it by unlawful means, obstructs it from reaching the one who deserves it, or by accumulating it is distracted from worship of his Lord.”
