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.”

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.”

A place either in Paradise or in Hell …

Narrated `Ali:
” We were accompanying a funeral procession in Baqi−I−Gharqad. The Prophet came to us and sat and we sat around him. He had a small stick in his hand then he bent his head and started scraping the ground with it. He then said,

“There is none among you, and not a created soul, but has place either in Paradise or in Hell assigned for him and it is also determined for him whether he will be among the blessed or wretched.”

A man said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Should we not depend on what has been written for us and leave the deeds as whoever amongst us is blessed will do the deeds of a blessed person and whoever amongst us will be wretched, will do the deeds of a wretched person?”

The Prophet said, “The good deeds are made easy for the blessed, and bad deeds are made easy for the wretched.” Then he recited the Verses:−−

“As for him who gives (in charity) and is Allah−fearing And believes in the Best reward from Allah. “
