عن عثمان بن عفان -رضي الله عنه-: أن النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- قال: «ليس لابن آدم حقٌّ في سِوَى هذه الخِصال: بيتٌ يسكنُه، وثوبٌ يُواري عَوْرتَه، وجِلْفُ الخُبزِ والماء».
[ضعيف.] - [رواه الترمذي.]

`Uthmaan ibn `Affaan, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, said: "The son of Adam has no right to anything but these things: A house in which he lives, a garment which covers his `Awrah (must-cover body parts), and bread and water.”

Explanation

This Hadith, albeit weak, encourages Muslims to confine themselves to the sufficiency level in terms of housing, eating, and clothing. One needs a house to live in, bread and water to satisfy his hunger, and a garment to cover what needs to be covered of his body. Anything else is among the pleasures, not the rights. This encourages people not to get too distracted by money, for this may impede their worship of Allah, the Almighty.
