How Not to Beg (Hadith No. 2469)

Bismillah.

Hadith no. 2468 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 74 :
Narrated by Anas (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was the best, the bravest and the most generous of all the people. Once when the people of Medina got frightened, the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) rode a horse and went ahead of them and said, “We found this horse very fast.”

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 75 :
Narrated by Muhammad bin Jubair
Jubair bin Mut’im (radiallaahu `anhu) told me that while he was in the company of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) with the people returning from Hunain, some people (bedouins) caught hold of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and started begging of him so much so that he had to stand under a (kind of thorny tree (i.e. Samurah) and his cloak was snatched away. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) stopped and said, “Give me my cloak. If I had as many camels as these thorny trees, I would have distributed them amongst you and you will not find me a miser or a liar or a coward.”

  1. That means we should give beggars money if we have it?

    • These people were not beggars in the traditional sense. They were only asking Allah’s Messenger (SAW) for their share in war booty. Whatever happened was because of their ill manners Bedouins were known to be “rough”.

      As for giving to the beggar, you may give if you think he’s needy, and may refuse if you think he’s not. Details: http://islamqa.info/en/104781
