Abu Musa Al-Ash’ari (may Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Prophet Muhammad (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said:

“Giving in charity is an obligation upon every Muslim”. It was said (to him): “What about one who does not find (the means) to do so?”  He (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said, “Let him work with his hands, thus doing benefit to himself and give in charity.”  It was said to him: “What if he does not have (the means) to do so?”  He (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said, “Then let him assist the needy, the aggrieved.”  It was said: “What about if he cannot even do this?”  He (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said, “Then he should enjoin good.”  He was asked: “What if he cannot do that?”  He (the Prophet; may Allah’s peace be upon him) said, “He should then abstain from evil, for verily, that is a charity from him”.

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Keep Yourself Clean

April 19, 2012 Leave a comment

Narrated Aisha (the wife of the Prophet; may Allah be pleased with her):

The people used to come from their abodes and from Al-‘Awali (i.e. outskirts of Madina up to a distance of four miles or more from Medina).  They used to pass through dust and used to be drenched with sweat and covered with dust; so sweat used to trickle from them. One of them came to Allah’s Apostle (may Allah be pleased with him) who was in my house.  The Prophet said to him:

“I wish that you keep yourself clean on this day of yours (i.e. take a bath).”

[Sahih Bukhari; Book 13, #25]
