Earn your wealth without greed

As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu

To Make The Heart Tender - 4th Muharram 1433 (29th November 2011)

Narrated Hakim bin Hizam (Radi-Allahu 'anhu):

I asked the Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) (for some money) and he
gave me, and then again I asked him and he gave me, and then again I asked
him and he gave me and he then said, "This wealth is (like) green and sweet
(fruit), and whoever takes it without greed, Allah will bless it for him,
but whoever takes it with greed, Allah will not bless it for him, and he
will be like the one who eats but is never satisfied. And the upper
(giving) hand is better than the lower (taking) hand."
