Hadith Explanation

Net Over Us

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “By Allah, I am not afraid of your poverty, but I fear that the world will spread its net over you, as it had spread it over the people that preceded you. Then you will also compete in world-seeking, as they begun doing. So it will also destroy you, as it destroyed the people before you.” [Bukhari]

While total deprivation of material goods may make a man helpless and useless; competing for the things of the world and trying to gain superiority over others through them, puts one in greater danger of losing one’s religion.

Self absorption in the earning and spending of wealth puts one in great trouble on the Day of Accountability. What the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) warned often as a source of destruction was wealth and competition for it.

Moderation is that the conditions of living be brought under control so that they may be used to reach the high ideal (Jannah).
