My wealth

`Abdullah bin Ash-Shikhkhir (RadhiAllaho anho) reported:
I came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) while he (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was reciting (Surat At-Takathur 102):
"The mutual rivalry (for hoarding worldly things) preoccupy you. Until you visit the graves (i.e., till you die).
Nay! You shall come to know!
Again nay! You shall come to know!
Nay! If you knew with a sure knowledge (the end result of hoarding,
you would not have been occupied in worldly things).
Verily, you shall see the blazing Fire (Hell)!
And again, you shall see it with certainty of sight!
Then (on that Day) you shall be asked about the delights (you indulged in, in this world)!'' (102:1-8)
(After reciting) he (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said,
"Son of adam says: `My wealth, my wealth.' Do you own of your wealth other than what you eat and consume, and what you wear and wear out, or what you give in Sadaqah (charity) (to those who deserve it), and that what you will have in stock for yourself.''
