عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ كَعْبٍ الْقُرَظِيِّ، حَدَّثَنِي مَنْ، سَمِعَ عَلِيَّ بْنَ أَبِي طَالِبٍ، يَقُولُ إِنَّا لَجُلُوسٌ مَعَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فِي الْمَسْجِدِ إِذْ طَلَعَ عَلَيْنَا مُصْعَبُ بْنُ عُمَيْرٍ مَا عَلَيْهِ إِلاَّ بُرْدَةٌ لَهُ مَرْقُوعَةٌ بِفَرْوٍ فَلَمَّا رَآهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم بَكَى لِلَّذِي كَانَ فِيهِ مِنَ النِّعْمَةِ وَالَّذِي هُوَ الْيَوْمَ فِيهِ ثُمَّ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏“‏ كَيْفَ بِكُمْ إِذَا غَدَا أَحَدُكُمْ فِي حُلَّةٍ وَرَاحَ فِي حُلَّةٍ وَوُضِعَتْ بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ صَحْفَةٌ وَرُفِعَتْ أُخْرَى وَسَتَرْتُمْ بُيُوتَكُمْ كَمَا تُسْتَرُ الْكَعْبَةُ ‏“‏ ‏.‏ قَالُوا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ نَحْنُ يَوْمَئِذٍ خَيْرٌ مِنَّا الْيَوْمَ نَتَفَرَّغُ لِلْعِبَادَةِ وَنُكْفَى الْمُؤْنَةَ ‏.‏ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏“‏ لأَنْتُمُ الْيَوْمَ خَيْرٌ مِنْكُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ ‏“‏‏

Hazrat Ali Radiyallahu Anhu narrated:

‘I was sitting in a gathering with Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam when Mus’ab bin ‘Umair appeared before us, wearing nothing but a sheet patched with some furs.

When Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam saw him, He began crying because of the good life Mus’ab previously had compared to the (simple) state that he was on that day.

Then Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: ‘How will you people be, when one of you will wear a garment in the morning, and at the end of the day another one. And when a platter of food will be placed in front of him while another is removed, and you will cover your houses just as the Ka’bah is covered?’ 

They said: ‘O Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) ! On that day we will be better than we are today. We will be able to devote ourselves completely in worship, as our expenses will be sufficed (due to having abundance then).

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: ‘No, today you are better than you will be on that day.’
