Adopting piety as trade

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Is the following a Hadith?

“O people, make piety your trade and your sustenance will come to you without goods or commerce”

 

Answer

Imam Tabarani and Imam Abu Nu’aym (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Mu’adh ibn Jabal (radiyallahu ‘anhu) with a very weak chain.

(Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 190, volume: 20 and Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 6 pg. 96. Refer: Tahdhibut Tahdhib, vol. 4 pg. 281 and Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 2 pg. 165 -number: 3192-)

 

However this principle is proven in the Holy Quran. Allah Ta’ala says:

“Whomsoever fears Allah [adopts Taqwa], Allah will make a way for him [out of difficulties] and shall provide for him [sustenance] from sources he never expected”

(Surah Talaq, verse: 2 and 3)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
