Impressed by other's wealth?
When ever one sees or hears about the wealth and riches of the worldly people and he feels a desire and love of wealth developing in his heart, it is advisable to remember the story of Qarun [Korah] in the Quran:
He came out before his people in all of his adornments. Those who desire the life of this world said, "If only we were to have what Qarun was given! He has a great fortune indeed!" And those who had been given knowledge said, "Woe unto you people! Allah's good reward is better for those who believe and do righteous deeds. And only the patient shall receive it."
