Two Hungry Wolves

Source: Al-Haadi Volume 1 Number 9

http://www.alhaadi.org.za/Articles/

Ka'ab bin Maalik (R.A.) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:

" Two hungry wolves let loose upon a flock of sheep can not inflict as much harm as the destruction greed for wealth and position can inflict upon the Deen of a person."

(Tirmizi � Faizul Qadeer V.5 pg. 445)
This Hadith makes it evident that greed and lust for wealth and position are not two hungry wolves� they are far more dangerous and destructive than hungry wolves.

The greed for wealth and position would lead one to aquire the world by any means whatsoever, even if such means are prohibited by the Sustainer and Nourisher - Allah Ta'ala. This insatiable desire for the glitter and glamour of this temporary abode would cause a "respectable" person to lie, hide the fault of the merchandise, commit fraud and a host of other HARAAM acts. This greed would make a wealthy person invoke the curse of Allah Ta'ala upon himself by involving himself in such transactions wherein the taking OR giving of interest occurs. This he would do merely so that he also could live like a millionaire. It is only the sand of the grave that will fill this hunger and arrest it in its tracks.


However, it will then be too late to make amends. Let us sit for a moment and ponder whether or not these cancers are within us. If they are there, immediate steps must be taken to treat and eventually eradicate these deadly diseases. May Allah Ta'ala purify us from them.
