Serve Others First

January 15, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Abu Qatadah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported:

Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (may Allah’s peace be upon him), said:

“He who serves others with drinking water should be the last to drink himself.”


Commentary from Riyad-us-Saliheen:  Referring to this Hadith, Imam An-Nawawi stresses the manner of serving food or drink and says that the distributor should have his share in the end.
[Riyad-us-Saliheen; Chapter 115, #773.  Dar-us-Salaam]
