Hadith on Greed: Human beings covet for more until death

Jabir reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “If the son of Adam had a valley of date palms, he would wish for another like it, then another and another, until he wished to have many valleys. Nothing will satisfy his belly but the dust of the grave.”

عن جَابِر أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ لَوْ كَانَ لِابْنِ آدَمَ وَادٍ مِنْ نَخْلٍ تَمَنَّى مِثْلَهُ ثُمَّ تَمَنَّى مِثْلَهُ حَتَّى يَتَمَنَّى أَوْدِيَةً وَلَا يَمْلَأُ جَوْفَ ابْنِ آدَمَ إِلَّا التُّرَابُ
