The First of this Ummah vs. the Last

The Messenger ﷺ said:

The first [ones] from this ummah will have been saved due to [their] certainty and detachment [from worldly life], [whereas] the last [ones] from this ummah will be brought to destruction by [their] miserliness and [unrestrained] hopes.

Ṣaḥīḥ Al-Targhīb wa-l-Tarhīb, no. 3340.
