Hadith of the day : Do not eat a thing which is given in charity…

Narrated Abu Huraira :

Al−Hasan bin `Ali took a date from the dates given in charity and put it in his mouth. The Prophet said, “Expel it from your mouth. Don’t you know that we do not eat a thing which is given in charity?”

Allah has hated for you three things…

Narrated Ash−Shu`bi: The clerk of Al−Mughira bin Shu`ba narrated,

“Muawiya wrote to Al−Mughira bin Shu`ba: Write to me something which you have heard from the Prophet (p.b.u.h) .” So Al−Mughira wrote:

I heard the Prophet saying, “Allah has hated for you three things: −1. Vain talks, (useless talk) that you talk too much or about others. −2. Wasting of wealth (by extravagance) −3. And asking too many questions (in disputed religious matters) or asking others for something (except in great need).

Charitable deeds…

Narrated Abu Burda: from his father from his grandfather that the Prophet said,

“Every Muslim has to give in charity.” The people asked, “O Allah’s Prophet! If someone has nothing to
give, what will he do?” He said, “He should work with his hands and benefit himself and also give in charity (from what he earns).” The people further asked, “If he cannot find even that?” He replied, “He should help the needy who appeal for help.” Then the people asked, “If he cannot do that?” He replied, “Then he should perform good deeds and keep away from evil deeds and this will be regarded as charitable deeds.”

Allah will make him self−sufficient….

Narrated Hakim bin Hizam The Prophet said,

“The upper hand is better than the lower hand (i.e. he who gives in charity is better than him who takes it). One should start giving first to his dependents. And the best object of charity is that which is given by a wealthy person (from the money which is left after his expenses). And whoever abstains from asking others for some financial help, Allah will give him and save him from asking others, Allah will make him self−sufficient.”

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.”

Four things…

Narrated Ibn `Abbas: A delegation of the tribe of `Abdul Qais
came to the Prophet and said,

“O Allah’s Apostle! We are from the tribe of Rabi`a, and the infidels of the tribe of Mudar stands between us and you; so we cannot come to you except during the Sacred Months. Please order us to do something (religious deeds) which we may carry out and also invite to it our people whom we have left behind.”

The Prophet said,

“I order you to do four things and forbid you four others: (I order you) to have faith in Allah, and confess that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, (and the Prophet gestured with his hand like this (i.e. one knot) and to offer prayers perfectly and to pay the Zakat, and to pay one−fifth of the booty in Allah’s Cause. And I forbid you to use Dubba’, Hantam, Naqir and Muzaffat (all these are the names of utensils used for preparing alcoholic drinks).”

Deeds that will make you enter Paradise…

Narrated Abu Aiyub: A man said to the Prophet

“Tell me of such a deed as will make me enter Paradise.”

The people said, “What is the matter with him? What is the matter with him?”

The Prophet said,

“He has something to ask. (What he needs greatly) The Prophet said: (In order to enter Paradise) you
should worship Allah and do not ascribe any partners to Him, offer prayer perfectly, pay the Zakat and keep good relations with your Kith and kin.”
