The Stingy Husband (Hadith No. 1908)

Bismillah.

Hadith no. 1907 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 412 :
Narrated by Anas bin Malik (radiallaahu `anhu)
Abu Taiba cupped Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and so Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) ordered that a Sa of dates be paid to him and ordered his masters (for he was a slave) to reduce his tax.

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 413 :
Narrated by ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa)
Hind, the mother of Mu’awiya said to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), “Abu Sufyan (her husband) is a miser. Am I allowed to take from his money secretly?” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said to her, “You and your sons may take what is sufficient reasonably and fairly.”

It is not permissible for the wife to take anything from her husband’s wealth except with his permission, unless he is stingy with her in spending what he is obliged to spend. In that case it is permissible for her to take what is sufficient for her and her children, on a reasonable basis.

The Iron Cloak (Hadith No. 1222)

Bismillah.

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 523:

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “The example of a miser and an alms-giver is like the example of two persons wearing iron cloaks.” Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) also said, “The example of an alms-giver and a miser is like the example of two persons who have two iron cloaks on them from their breasts to their collar bones, and when the alms-giver wants to give in charity, the cloak becomes capacious till it covers his whole body to such an extent that it hides his fingertips and covers his footprints (obliterates his tracks). And when the miser wants to spend, it (the iron cloak) sticks and every ring gets stuck to its place and he tries to widen it, but it did not become wide.

May Allah make me understand the meaning of this example in depth. But the basic implication is that the generous person, when he spends, gets barakah in his wealth and reward. Even a little suffices him. And he spends even more in Allah’s way. As for the miser, his wealth only gets lesser and lesser, so even when he wants to spend, he can’t really find the means to do it. There’s no barakah in his wealth. Even a lot isn’t sufficient for him.

Angels Pray for Sadaqah-Doers (Hadith No. 1221)

Bismillah.

Hadith no. 1219 (below) and Hadith no. 1220 (further below) are repeats. Read the post here.

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 520:

Narrate Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “If a woman gives in charity from her husband’s house ..” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) also said, “If a lady gives meals (in charity) from her husband’s house without spoiling her husband’s property, she will get a reward and her husband will also get a reward likewise. The husband will get a reward because of his earnings and the woman because of her spending.”

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 521:

Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “When a woman gives in charity from her house meals in Allah’s Cause without spoiling her husband’s property, she will get a reward for it, and her husband will also get the reward for his earnings and the storekeeper will get a reward likewise.”

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 522:

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Every day two angels come down from Heaven and one of them says, ‘O Allah! Compensate every person who spends in Your Cause,’ and the other (angel) says, ‘O Allah! Destroy every miser.’ “

So if angels’ prayers get accepted, generous people who spend in Allah’s Cause remain in constant advantage, and miserly people always at loss (tsk tsk). And guess what? Angels’ prayers do get accepted.
