This may not be a right forum to ask this sort of question. However, the hadith is needed for some discussion. It goes something like that " A rich muslim is Afdal or has Fazeelat over Hundered poor muslims" has anyone heard of it.

This forum should be fine for QA as well.
There is no such Hadith at all. However, there is one that comes somewhat close to it and conveys a very positive meaning. (Mustadrak Haakam).
The exalted prophet is reported to have said, "There is nothing good in demeaning wealth. Wealth enables a person to fulfill the rights of other human beings, and through the blessing of wealth, a person becomes independent of Allah's servants."
There is no such Hadith, neither can.
But another one "Al Mo'minul qaviyyu ahsan min mo'min adda'eef" (A
strong Muslim is better than a weaker Muslim) . It
does not refer to physical strength but to moral strength. One who has courage to bring
the truth to the tongue without being influenced by any hesitation, reservation or fear is
regarded as strong Muslim.
