What is Left in This World?

قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ رَبِّهِ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ مُعَاوِيَةَ يَقُولُ عَلَى هَذَا الْمِنْبَرِ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ إِنَّ مَا بَقِيَ مِنْ الدُّنْيَا بَلَاءٌ وَفِتْنَةٌ وَإِنَّمَا مَثَلُ عَمَلِ أَحَدِكُمْ كَمَثَلِ الْوِعَاءِ إِذَا طَابَ أَعْلَاهُ طَابَ أَسْفَلُهُ وَإِذَا خَبُثَ أَعْلَاهُ خَبُثَ أَسْفَلُهُ

Abu Abd Rabbi-hi reported: I heard Mu’aawiyah (may Allâh be pleased with him) say on this minbar: I heard the Messenger of Allâh (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) say:

‘Nothing is left in the world except TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS; the similitude of the action of any of you is like a container, if its top is good, its base will also be good, and if its top is bad its base will be bad.’

Al-Imaam Al-Albaanee said in As-Silsilah As-Saheehah 4/312: Ibn Mubaarak recorded it in Az-Zuhd (596), Ahmad narrated it from the latter (in Al-Musnad), 4/94, so also Ar-Ramhurmuzee in Al-Amthaal (p. 101)... I say: this chain is Saheeh...the men of its chain are trustworthy and well-known except Abu Abdi rabbi-hi but who was mentioned by Ibn Hibbaan in Ath-Thiqaat...Ibn Maajah also recorded the hadith (4199) so also Abu Ya’la (4/1776) but in another route...
