Prohibition of seeking rizq by means of committing sin.

Hadith: Arabic Text followed by English Translation.

قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم :

إن روح القدس نفث في روعي أن نفسا لن تموت حتى تستكمل أجلها ، و تستوعب رزقها ، فاتقوا الله ، وأجملوا في الطلب ، ولا يحملن أحدكم استبطاء الرزق أن يطلبه بمعصية الله ، فإن الله تعالى لا ينال ما عنده إلا بطاعته

رواه أبو نعيم في الحلية من حديث أبي أمامة ، وصححه الألباني في صحيح الجامع برقم (2085) .

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“The Holy Spirit (Jibreel) has inspired to me that no soul will die until it has completed its appointed term and received its provision in full, so fear Allaah and do not be desperate in seeking provision, and no one of you should be temped to seek provision by means of committing sin if it is slow in coming to him, for that which is with Allaah can only be attained by obeying Him.”

Narrated by Abu Na’eem in al-Hilyah from the hadeeth of Abu Umaamah; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, no. 2085.
