Abdullah ibn Amr reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “If the treasures of Persia and Rome were opened for you, what kind of people will you be?”
Abdur Rahman ibn Awf said, “We will be as Allah has ordered us.”
The Prophet said, “Perhaps you will be something else. You will compete with each other, then envy each other, then turn away from each other, then hate each other, and so on. Then you will go to the poor emigrants and make some of them masters over others.” (Saheeh Muslim).
Ibn Rajab reported: When the treasures of Khosrau were opened for Umar ibn Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, he wept and he said, “Verily, the likes of this were never opened for people except that Allah made it a cause of discord between them.” (Kashf alKurbah 1/5)
