Recommending (Hadith No. 1211)


Hadith no. 1209 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 510:

Narrated ‘Uqba bin Al-Harith (radiallahu `anhu):

Once the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallamoffered the ‘Asr prayer and then hurriedly went to his house and returned immediately. I (or somebody else) asked him (as to what was the matter) and he said, “I left at home a piece of gold which was from the charity and I disliked to let it remain a night in my house, so I got it distributed. “

Hadith no. 1210 (below) is also a repeat. Read it here (Hadith no. 793).

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 511:

Narrated Ibn Abbas (radiallahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallamwent out for the ‘Id prayer on the ‘Id day and offered a two Rakat prayer; and he neither offered a prayer before it or after it. Then he went towards the women along with Bilal (radiallahu `anhu). He preached them and ordered them to give in charity. And some (amongst the women) started giving their fore-arm bangles and ear-rings.

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 512:

Narrated Abu Burda bin Abu Musa (radiallahu `anhu):

that his father said, “Whenever a beggar came to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) or he was asked for something, he used to say (to his companions), “Help and recommend him and you will receive the reward for it; and Allah will bring about what He will through His Prophet’s tongue.”

Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallamwould encourage his companions to help the poor. And if they couldn’t fulfill the questioner’s needs themselves, he would ask them to recommend them to someone else. And the person who recommends gets the same reward as the doer. Allahu Akbar.

This can be taken as a general principle, not just limited to financial help. If someone asks you for help, you help them if it’s in your hands. If not, refer them to someone else who can make things easier for them. So even though you did not do the deed yourself, you’re entitled to its reward. Because Allah is the Best. <3
