Is it Good or Bad to be Wealthy?


Village Elder
Psalms 112:1-3: Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord... Wealth and riches shall be in his house.
Riches are good.

Matthew 19:24: It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.
Riches are a hindrance.

For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.
—  Matthew 25:29, New International Version

Some answers are valid if we were in heaven but as long as you're on planet Earth , wealth is very good and a must , it brings nothing but good to you and those who will come after you . The bad is simply normal human behavior that God himself knew of and put in man , money has nothing to do with it .

“Richness is not in the quantity of possessions (that one has); rather, true richness is the richness of one’s self.”

“Whoever amongst you wakes up, secure in his home, healthy in his body, having the bare amount of food that he requires for the day, then it is as if the entire world has been captured for him, with all that it contains!”

“That which is little yet sufficient is better than that which is much but distracts.”

If you are content with what Allah has given you, you will be the richest person.”

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

That is an idealist statement. The context of the thread was material wealth.
I don't really value material wealth. Spiritual wealth? I value it 1000%. GOD created us in his own Image, the immortal part of GOD, that is in OUR spirit sometimes over whelm US to thinking that our body too is immortal, We always thinking of our future even at 95yrs of age. Material wealth is never fulfilling.
