Exemplary Ethics of the Prophet

One Hadith

Narrated by Ibn Masud (May Allah be pleased with him):


The Prophet (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him) once asked the Companions: “Who amongst you loves the property of his inheritors more than his own property?"


They replied: “O Messenger of Allah! All of us love our own property more than we love the property of our inheritors.”


So the Prophet (SAW) replied, “You must know this: A persons property is only that which he sent forth in this life, and the property of his inheritors is what he left behind.”


(Bukhari, Rikâk 12)
