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?”

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.”

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.”

A time will come upon…

Narrated Abu Musa:

Thy Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, “A time will come upon the people when a person will wander about with gold
as Zakat and will not find anybody to accept it, and one man will be seen followed by forty women to be their guardian because of scarcity of men and great number of women. “

I am not in need of it…

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said,

“The Hour (Day of Judgment) will not be established till your wealth increases so much so that one will be worried, for no one will accept his Zakat and the person to whom he will give it will reply, ‘I am not in need of it.’ “

There is no envy except in two…

Narrated Ibn Mas`ud: I heard the Prophet saying,

“There is no envy except in two: a person whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it in the right way, and a person whom Allah has given wisdom (i.e. religious knowledge) and he gives his decisions accordingly and teaches it to the others.”
