Avoid wealth accumulation

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: The worldly things in your hands today, have  been in others hands before, and after you will also be in the hands of some other people. Indeed, you will amass wealth for two (types of) persons, either a person who uses the accumulated wealth in the way of obedience of God so that he will be blessed with the wealth which destroyed you, or the one who uses it to commit sins so that he will be destroyed with your accumulated wealth; none of these two persons should be prioritised to yourself, so that you bear their weights on your shoulders. Therefore, ask for Divine Forgiveness for those who passed away and hope for Divine Sustenance for those who are alive [1].
