Most Superior Charity II (Ahadith 1206 – 1207)


Volume 2, Book 24, Number 507:

Narrated Abu Huraira :

The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, “The best charity is that which is practiced by a wealthy person. And start giving first to your dependents.”

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 508:

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.”

  • Best time to give in charity: when you’re wealthy.
  • Best people you can spend on: your family.
  • Upper hand is better the lower hand (giving is better than taking).
  • No begging for financial help.

Similar Hadith here.

So take your parent/spouse/sibling shopping next time you plan on doing some Sadaqah? :P

Sharing Reward 100% (Hadith No. 1165)


Hadith no. 1203 (about the seven lucky people) is a repeat. Read it here.
Hadith no. 1204 (about how we need to do Sadaqah NOW) is also a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 506:

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 . “

This is one of the BEST things about Allah. That He’s Ar-Raheem: Most Merciful. He’s especially merciful for the believers. And one of the ways He shows mercy to us is by rewarding us with more than what we deserve. And if more than one people are involved in one good deed, they all get rewarded, without any reduction in anyone’s reward. So you’re sharing reward, but you still get 100% of it. Awesome, isn’t it? :D
