Is it enough?

26th October 2020
Once, a certain man presented a gift of five hundred Dirhams to
Sheikh Junaid Rahmalullah alaihe of Baghdad and requested that
the amount should be distributed among the Sheikh's students and
disciples. The Sheikh said to him, "Do you possess any more
Dirhams?" The man said that he had a lot of Dinaars in his
possession. The Sheikh said, "Do you wish for increase in your
wealth or, are you content with what you possess?" The man said
that he desired an increase in his property. The Sheikh said, "Then,
your need is greater than ours, for, we do not wish for an increase in
what we possess in the world". Saying this, the Sheikh declined to
accept the gift and gave the money back to him. (Raudh )
