Hadith on Tawakkul: Trust in Allah, but do not store to excess

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, entered the room of Bilal and he found a pile of dates with him. The Prophet said, “What is this, O Bilal?” Bilal said, “They are dates I have stored for you.” The Prophet said, “Woe to you, O Bilal! Are you not afraid they will become your fumes in the Hellfire? Spend them in charity, O Bilal, and do not fear that the One upon the Throne will leave you bereft.

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ دَخَلَ عَلَى بِلَالٍ فَوَجَدَ عِنْدَهُ صُبَرًا مِنْ تَمْرٍ فَقَالَ مَا هَذَا يَا بِلَالُ فَقَالَ تَمْرًا ادَّخَرْتَهُ لَكَ فَقَالَ وَيْحَكَ يَا بِلَالُ أَمَا تَخَافُ أَنْ يَكُونَ لَهُ بُخَارٌ فِي النَّارِ أَنْفِقْ يَا بِلَالُ وَلَا تَخْشَ مِنْ ذِي الْعَرْشِ إقْلَالًا
