Abundance of Worldly Wealth

What is the abundance of wordly wealth? What is the worldy wealth in islam?

The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) has said:

“Rejoice, and hope for what will gladden you. By Allah, it is not poverty that I fear for you, but I fear that this world will be spread out in front of you as it was spread out in front of those before you, and then you will vie for it as they vied for it and it will destroy you as it destroyed them.” (Bukhari, Riqaq, 7; Muslim, Zuhd, 6)

“After me, I fear for you the beauty and attraction of this world which will be opened up to you.” (Bukhari, Zakat 47, Jihad 37; Muslim, Zakat, 121-123)[1]

“The world is sweet and green. Surely, Allah will grant you worldly rule in order to see how you will act and what you do. So, beware of this world and beware of women.” (Muslim, Dhikr, 99)

Wealth will increase to such a point towards the end of time that it will satisfy even the greedy. The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace said) has stated:

“There will be a caliph in the last period of my Community who will freely give handfuls of wealth to the people without feeling the need to count it.” (Muslim, Fitan, 68, 69)[2]

The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) has informed us that all this will indeed take place. Perhaps these events may intensify over time, but these can certainly be encountered in our day also.
