عن أبي هريرة -رضي الله عنه-، قال: قال رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم-: «مَنعت العراق دِرْهَمِها وقِفِّيزها، ومنعت الشام مُدْيها ودينارها، ومنعت مصر إردَبَّها ودينارها، وعُدتم مِن حيث بَدَأتُم، وعُدتم من حيث بدأتم، وعُدتم من حيث بدأتم» شَهِد على ذلك لحم أبي هريرة ودمه.
[صحيح.] - [رواه مسلم.]

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Iraq will withhold its dirham and Qafiīz (measurement), the Levant will withhold its Mudd (measurement) and dinar, and Egypt will withhold its Irdabb (measurement) and dinar, and you will return to where you started from; you will return to where you started from; you will return to where you started from." The flesh and blood of Abu Hurayrah bear witness to that.
[Sahih/Authentic] - [Muslim]

Explanation

The Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) tells us that the Muslims will conquer Iraq, the Levant and Egypt and will impose on them what is calculated in weights and measures to be given to the Muslims. However, this will be withheld at the end of time, either because the disbelievers in these lands will breach their covenants and will not pay their due taxes or because the foreign disbelievers will take over these lands and prevent the Muslims from receiving their money. And the Muslims will become weak, poor, and strangers, just as they were in the early days of Islam.
