• A man once asked the Prophet sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam to make dua that he be granted wealth, but the Prophet sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam refused. He repeated his request many times, and on the fourth occasion the Prophet sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam made dua for him. He then was granted wealth in the form of sheep, and tended to them outside of Madinah. This caused him to slowly start to neglect performing salah with jamaa’ah. Eventually, as his wealth increased, it got so bad that he only came to the masjid for Jumu’ah salah. Even worse, when Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam passed away he was not even aware of it, and no one bothered to inform him either!

  • Thus even halal things can be harmful for you.
