56. Amīr al-mu’minīn, peace be upon him, said: With wealth a strange land is a homeland, while with destitution even a homeland is a strange land. 
 A person who has wealth and riches will get friends and acquaintances wherever he may be and therefore he will not feel strange in a foreign land; but if he is poor and destitute he will have no friends even in his homeland because people do not like to make friends with the poor and the destitute, or to extend relations with them. He is therefore, a stranger even at home and has no friends or well-wishers.
He who has no worldly successor remains unknown as a stranger even in his homeland.
