As Salamu Alaikum


Question

In the Qur’an, why is wealth always mentioned before children, despite children being worth more to a father then his wealth? And what is the wisdom behind this?

Answer

Because wealth helps one to fulfil unlawful desires, the temptations of wealth are greater. The opposite is the case with children. Although a person may be tried in regard to them, and disobey Allah because of them, but the temptations from wealth are more and worse.

Allah Almighty says:

"And it is not your wealth, nor your children that bring you nearer to Us (i.e. pleases Allah)." (Surah Saba 34:37)

He also said:

"Your wealth and your children are only a trial." (Surah At-Taghabun 64:15)

And:

"Let not your properties or your children divert you from the remembrance of Allah." (Surah Al-Munafiqun 63:9)

Shaikh ibn Baz (Rahimahullah)
