Less Wealth Means Easier Reckoning

less wealth

Don’t be so sad with your less wealth. Because it means the reckoning in Hereafter will be easier. All of our deeds and wealth will be counted, reckoned, and asked in Hereafter.

Muhammad ibn Labid reported that the Prophet ﷺ said:

اثنتانِ يكرهُهُما ابنُ آدمَ :الموتُ ؛ والموتُ خيرٌ مِن الفِتنةِ ، ويكرَه قِلَّةَ المالِ ؛ وقِلَّةُ المالِ أقلُّ للحِسابِ

“Two things are hated by the son of Adam. He hates death, although it is better for the believer than tribulation, and he hates to have little wealth, although it means his reckoning will be easier” [Ahmad, al-Albani says this hadith is sahih].

But also, with more wealth, more doors of good deed are available. So if you have more, use is wisely.
