Q: What is meaning of this hadith?

It was narrated from Jabir bin ‘Abdullah that a man said: “O Messenger of Allah, I have wealth and a son, and my father wants to take all my wealth.” He said: “You and your wealth belong to your father.”

حَدَّثَنَا هِشَامُ بْنُ عَمَّارٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عِيسَى بْنُ يُونُسَ، حَدَّثَنَا يُوسُفُ بْنُ إِسْحَاقَ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْمُنْكَدِرِ، عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، أَنَّ رَجُلاً، قَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنَّ لِي مَالاً وَوَلَدًا وَإِنَّ أَبِي يُرِيدُ أَنْ يَجْتَاحَ مَالِي فَقَالَ ‏ “‏ أَنْتَ وَمَالُكَ لأَبِيكَ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

This means that all my wealth including the part of my wife and children in my wealth belongs to my father. He can snatch my wealth when he wants?

Bismillaah

A: Your father can use your wealth to the point of need only.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
