May Allah Brighten the Man Who…

Narrated by Zayd Ibn Thabit who said that Allah’s Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “May Allah brighten the man who heard a hadeeth from us, memorized it and then conveys it just as he heard it, for perhaps the one who carries fiqh is not a faqeeh (one who understands), and perhaps he passes it on with the fiqh to one who is better than him in understanding.  There are three things the heart of Muslim harbours no ghill (aversion) towards:  making one’s act sincerely for Allah’s sake, sincerely advising the Muslim rulers, and sticking to the Jamaa’ah, for indeed their supplication encompasses those who are behind them.  And the one who makes the worldly life his main concern, Allah will remove from his heart contentment and He will place poverty right between his eyes, and Allah will shatter his affairs and nothing will come (to him) except what was written for him.  And the one who makes the Hereafter his concern, Allah will place contentment in heart and He will remove the poverty that is between his eyes, and He will suffice him in his affairs, and the worldly life will come to him regardless.”
[Mutawaatir (concurrent) hadeeth, as per Imaam at-Tirmidhee, al-Hafidh Ibn Hajr, Ibn Jafar al-Katanee, as-Suyootee, et al.  Taken from T.R.O.I.D Publications’ A Study of the Hadeeth, ‘May Allah Brighten the Man.’ ]
