I cannot understand this Hadeeth. Can someone explain it? Generally, in most of the cases, words of RasulAllah (saw) are either an advice/encouragement towards doing good, or they are a warning/forbidding from evil, but I don't see either of these in this Hadeeth. Allahu Ta'ala A'lam.

this is an implied warning. It is not explicit. That you can do whatever you please, but you will have to face Allah's retribution.
i hope it is clear

Ibn Al-Jawzee said, [color=Black]“If this Dunya was not a station of tests it would not be filled with sicknesses and filth. If life was not about hardship, then the Prophets and the pious would have lived the most comfortable of lives. Nay, Adam suffered test after test until he left the Dunya. Nuh cried for 300 years. Ibrahim was thrown into a pit of fire and later told to slaughter his son. Ya’qub cried until he became blind. Musa challenged Fir’own and was tested by his people. Eeasa had no provision except the morsels his disciples provided him with. And Muhammad (Sal Allahu Alayhi wa Sallam) met poverty with patience, his uncle - one of the most beloved relatives to him - was slain and mutilated and his people disbelieved in him ... And the list of Prophets and the pious goes on and on.”[/color]
