English Translation of Al-Quran
[24].Surah Al-Furqan [The Criterion]
Ayat 10. Blessed be Allah Who, if Allah will, will assign Messenger of Allah [ :PBUH:](PBUH) better than (all) that, - Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise) and will assign you palaces (i.e. in Paradise).
[Tafseer] of Ayat 10. Blessed is Allah Who, if that were Allah will, could give thee better (things) than those,- Gardens beneath which rivers flow; and He could give thee palaces (secure to dwell in). The reminiscent phrase shows that the first argument, about the Revelation and Prophethood, is completed, and we now pass on to the contrast, the fate of the rejecters of both. This phrase is usually symbolical of the Bliss in the Hereafter. If it were Allah's Plan, He could give his Messengers complete felicity and power in this life also. Instead of being persecuted, mocked, driven out of their homes, and having to exert their utmost powers of body, mind, and character to plant the flag of Truth in an unbelieving world, they could have lived in ease and security. But that would not have given the real lessons they came to teach struggling humanity by their example.

English Translation of Hadith
Hazrat Kaab bin Iyad (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah [ :PBUH: ](PBUH) said, "Verily, there is a Fitnah (trial) for every nation and the trial for my nation (or Ummah) is wealth.''
[At-Tirmidhi Hadith # 2336].
Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Furqan Ayat 10."Blessed be Allah Who, if Allah will, will assign Messenger of Allah [ :PBUH: ](PBUH) better than (all) that, - Gardens. The word "Fitnah'' means trial. Anything with which a person is tried is a Fitnah for him. For this reason children and property have been regarded Fitnah for mankind in the Noble Qur'an. This Hadith strongly urges the Muslim Ummah to exercise moderation in their love for worldly goods and riches otherwise all these things, which are Gifts of Allah, can become a source of woeful torture for them.
