عن أبي سعيد الخُدْرِي -رضي الله عنه- قال: جلس رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- على المِنْبَر، وجلسنا حوله، فقال: «إنَّ مما أخاف عليكم من بَعدي ما يُفتح عليكم من زهرة الدنيا وزِيَنتها».
[صحيح.] - [متفق عليه.]

Abu Sa‘īd al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) once sat on the pulpit and we sat around him. He said: "Verily, among the things I fear the most for you is the splendor and pleasures of this worldly life when they become plentifully available to you."

Explanation

The meaning of this Hadīth is that the plentiful pleasures and splendor of life are the tempting things that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) fears for his nation after his death, which shows how compassionate and merciful he is to his nation. He clarifies that what he fears the most is that they will be so overwhelmed by the splendor and pleasures of this worldly life that they will deviate away from the right path of guidance and salvation until death suddenly takes their souls, then there will be no chance for repenting.
