You Are One Of Four

ICSFP - Perspective
Reflections upon a hadeeth from the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. The Messenger of Allaah, Muhammad bin Abdullah, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam said: “There are only four kinds of people in this world: One to whom Allah has blessed with wealth and knowledge, and he fears Allâh with regard to them, and uses them to uphold family ties, and acknowledges the rights that Allâh has over them. He has the highest status. One to whom Allah has given knowledge, but not wealth. His intention is sincere, and he says, ‘If only I had wealth, I would do (good deeds) like so-and-so (the one mentioned above).’ He will be rewarded according to his intention, so their reward will be equal. One to whom Allah has given wealth, but not knowledge. He spends his money aimlessly, neither fearing Allaah with regard to it nor using it to uphold family ties nor acknowledging the rights that Allâh has over it. He has the lowest status. One to whom Allah has given neither wealth nor money. He says, ‘If only I had wealth, I would do (bad deeds) like so-and-so (theone mentioned above). He will be punished according to his intention, so their burden of sin will be equal.” Reported by Ahmad and al-Tirmidhi, and classed as sahîh in Al-Targheeb wa’l-Tarheeb,1 /9
