Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) choosing poverty

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

It has been reported from the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) that he said:

“My Rabb presented to me the opportunity that He make the valley of Makkah gold for me. I replied, ‘O my Rabb! But I [wish] to be satiated one day and hungry the next… When I am hungry, I humble myself before you and thank you. When I become satiated, I give thanks to you and praise you.’

Is this authentic?


Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared this Hadith as sound through corroboration (hasan lighayrihi).

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
