Wealth & Poverty

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Sayyidina ‘Ali ibn Abi Thalib (k.w.) said, “Son of Adam!  Do not rejoice at wealth and do not despair at poverty.  Do not become despondent at the onset of tribulation and do not rejoice at the onset of ease, for gold is refined through fire and the righteous servant is refined through tribulation.  You will not attain what you want except by leaving what you desire, and you will not reach what you aspire to except through patience.  Expend all your efforts in carefully fulfilling the duties made obligatory upon you.”
