‘Your possessions and your children are only a test [for you]…’ (Quran 64:15)

In commenting on this verse, Sahl ibn Abdullah al-Tustari said:

‘If God gives you wealth, you busy yourselves with how to keep it, and if He does not give you wealth, you busy yourselves with seeking after it.  So, when will you free yourself for Him?’
