The Reward For Not Having A Desire Fulfilled

The Sahaba (radhiyAllahu anhum) asked Nabi (salAllahu alayhi wa salam), “Will we receive a reward from Allah Ta’ala for not being able to acquire what we sometimes desire due to a lack of money?”

Nabi ( salAllahu alayhi wa salam) replied, “If you do not receive a reward for it, then what else will you receive?”

Dhahaak (rahmatullahi alayh) said, “A person goes to the marketplace and he sees something which his heart desires, but due to not having any money in his pocket (he cannot purchase it but) makes sabr hoping to receive reward (instead of it). He will receive a reward which is much more than spending one hundred thousand Dirhams in charity.”
