Love of the world

Sayyiduna Thawban رضي الله عنه narrates: Nabee صلى الله عليه وسلم said:_

Soon people will invite each other plotting against you like how a person eating invites others to share their dish.

Someone asked: ‘Will that be because of our small numbers at that time’?

Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم replied: No, you will be many at that time, but you will be scum like that carried down by a flood, and Allah will take away the awe and fear of you from the chest of your enemy and cast ‘wahn’ into your hearts.

Someone asked: ‘What is wahn’?_

Nabee صلى الله عليه وسلم replied: ‘Love of the world and dislike of death’.

(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 4297)
