The reward of one will not decrease the reward of the others.

Narrated `Aisha: Allah’s Apostle said,

“When a woman gives in charity some of the foodstuff (which she has in her house) without spoiling it, she will receive the reward for what she has spent, and her husband will receive the reward because of his earning, and the storekeeper will also have a reward similar to it. The reward of one will not decrease the reward of the others . “

The reward of one will not decrease the reward of the others …

Narrated `Aisha: Allah’s Apostle said,

“When a woman gives in charity some of the foodstuff (which she has in her house) without spoiling it, she will receive the reward for what she has spent, and her husband will receive the reward because of his earning, and the storekeeper will also have a reward similar to it. The reward of one will not decrease the reward of the others . “

I am not in need of it…

Narrated Haritha bin Wahab Al−Khuza`i:

I heard the Prophet (p.b.u.h) saying, “(O people!) Give in charity (for Allah’s cause) because a time will come when a person will carry his object of charity from place to place (and he will not find any person to take it) and any person whom he shall request to take it, I will reply, ‘If you had brought it yesterday I would have taken it, but today I am not in need of it.”

Seven People…

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said,

“Seven people will be shaded by Allah under His shade on the day when there will be no shade except His. They are:

(1) a just ruler;

(2) A young man who has been brought up in the worship of Allah, (i.e. worship Allah (Alone) sincerely from his childhood),

(3) a man whose heart is attached to the mosque (who offers the five compulsory congregational prayers in the mosque);

(4) two persons who love each other only for Allah’s sake and they meet and part in Allah’s cause only;

(5) a manwho refuses the call of a charming woman of noble birth for an illegal actions with her and says: I am afraid of Allah.

(6) a person who practices charity so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given (i.e. nobody knows how much he has given in charity).

(7) a person who remembers Allah in seclusion and his eyes get flooded with tears.”

I will give alms again…

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) said,

“A man said that he would give something in charity. He went out with his object of charity and unknowingly gave it to a thief. Next morning the people said that he had given his object of charity to a thief. (On hearing that)

he said, “O Allah! All the praises are for you. I will give alms again.”

And so he again went out with his alms and (unknowingly) gave it to an adulteress. Next morning the people said that he had given his alms to an adulteress last night.

The man said, “O Allah! All the praises are for you. (I gave my alms) to an adulteress. I will give alms again.”

So he went out with his alms again and (unknowingly) gave it to a rich person. (The people) next morning said that he had given his alms to a wealthy person.
He said, “O Allah! All the praises are for you. (I had given alms) to a thief, to an adulteress and to a wealthy man.”

Then someone came and said to him,

“The alms which you gave to the thief, might make him abstain from stealing, and that given to the adulteress might make her abstain from adultery, and that given to the wealthy man might make him take a lesson from it and spend his wealth which Allah has given him, in Allah’s cause.”

Which charity is the most superior in reward?…

Narrated Abu Huraira: A man came to the Prophet and asked,

“O Allah’s Apostle! Which charity is the most superior in reward?”

He replied, “The charity which you practice while you are healthy, niggardly and afraid of poverty and wish to become wealthy. Do not delay it to the time of approaching death and then say, ‘Give so much to such and such, and so much to such and such.’ And it has already belonged to such and such (as it is too late).”

When it is a Friday…

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said,

“When it is a Friday, the angels stand at the gate of the mosque and keep on writing the names of the persons coming to the mosque in succession according to their arrivals. The example of the one who enters the mosque in the earliest hour is that of one offering a camel (in sacrifice). The one coming next is like one offering a cow and then a ram and then a chicken and then an egg respectively. When the Imam comes out (for Jumua prayer) they (i.e. angels) fold their papers and listen to the Khutba.”
