Hadith on Family: Wealth and children are a trial, even for the Prophet

Abu Buraida reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, was delivering a sermon when Hasan and Hussein came while they were wearing red shirts, walking and tripping. The Messenger of Allah descended from the pulpit and he picked them both up and placed them in his lap. He said, “Allah and His messenger spoke the truth when they said: Indeed, your wealth and your children are only a trial for you, (64:15); I saw these two boys walking and tripping and I could not be patient until I cut short my speech and picked them up.”

[Musnad Ahmad, Number 22486, Hasan]

أَبِي بُرَيْدَةَ يَقُولُ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَخْطُبُنَا فَجَاءَ الْحَسَنُ وَالْحُسَيْنُ عَلَيْهِمَا قَمِيصَانِ أَحْمَرَانِ يَمْشِيَانِ وَيَعْثُرَانِ فَنَزَلَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مِنْ الْمِنْبَرِ فَحَمَلَهُمَا فَوَضَعَهُمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ ثُمَّ قَالَ صَدَقَ اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ إِنَّمَا أَمْوَالُكُمْ وَأَوْلَادُكُمْ فِتْنَةٌ نَظَرْتُ إِلَى هَذَيْنِ الصَّبِيَّيْنِ يَمْشِيَانِ وَيَعْثُرَانِ فَلَمْ أَصْبِرْ حَتَّى قَطَعْتُ حَدِيثِي وَرَفَعْتُهُمَا

مسند أحمد بَاقِي مُسْنَدِ الْأَنْصَارِ إنما أموالكم وأولادكم فتنة
