What is true wealth in Islam? – Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

“Wealth is not through a lot of possessions,” said the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace). “Rather, wealth is only wealth of spirit.” [Related by Ahmad and others ; sound]

Shaykh Faraz Rabbani explains the neediness (faqr) of humans, and how the desire to amass–wealth and possessions–is a natural impulse.

However, no worldly amassing ultimately matters. On the Day of Reckoning, all that matters is coming to Allah with a sound heart.

Shaykh Faraz explains this Prophetic hadith, and shares three signs of a sound, healthy, wealthy heart and spirit.
