Prophet Muhammed ‘I Am Not Concerned With Worldly Things’

Donate To Discover The Truth

Here is a testimony from Prophet Muhammed (p), this report shows his disinterest in and disavowal of worldly things. This report tells us that he cared nothing for things of this world when it came to himself, except in pleasing his LORD.

Imam Ahmad stated that Abd al-Samad, Abu Sa’id and Affan related to him, quoting Thabit – Ibn Yazid, that is – quoting Hilal – ibn Khabbab, that is – from Ikrama, from Ibn Abbas, that Umar came in to see the Prophet (SAAS), while he was lying on a straw mat that had left a mark on his side. Umar asked, ‘Prophet of God, should you not have a more comfortable bed than this?’ He replied, ‘I am not concerned with worldly things; I am merely like a rider travelling on a summer’s day, resting for a while during the day time beneath a tree, then moving away and leaving it behind.’ (Transmission is ‘excellent’, Ibn kathir) (Sirah Nabawiyya volume 4, page 404) [2]

In another report:

‘The Messenger of God (SAAS) left nothing except what is contained between these two covers.’ (Sirah Nabawiyya volume 4, page 404) [2]
