Chapter No. 40, The Chapters on Ascetism (Zuhd)
Hadith No: 4103
Narrated/Authority of Abu Wail
that a man from his people - Samurah bin Sahm - said: "We stopped with Abu Hashim bin Utbah, who had been stabbed, and Muawiyah came to visit him. Abu Hashim wept and Muawiyah said to him: Why are you weeping, O maternal uncle? Is there some pain bothering you, or is it because of this world, the best of which has already passed? He said: It is not for any of these reasons. But the Messenger of Allah (saw) gave me some advice and I wish that I had followed it. He (saw) said: "There may come a time when you will see wealth divided among the people, and all you will need of that is a servant and a mount to ride in the cause of Allah." That time came, but I accumulated wealth."
