Once Aisha asked him if Khadijah had been the only woman worthy of his love. When she comes to you, give her greetings of peace from her Lord and from me, and give her the good news of a palace of jewels in the Garden, where there will be neither any noise nor any tiredness. Their deaths would bring great tragedy to the life of Prophet Muhammad SAW as these were two people who provided him great sources of comfort and strength when faced with persecution.
However, Muhammad SAW worked to be sure that Khadijah was remembered in the best light, and honored her even after her death. If a gift was sent to Muhammad SAW he would not hesitate to have the gift sent to a woman who was a friend of Khadijah, showing the kindness and compassion that Khadijah exhibited during her life. What an honour to be a woman chosen to be the first one to believe in the last revelation on earth.
What an honour to devote your life, your love, your wealth, just to please Allah and to support His Prophet and the Message of Allah. What an honour to be sent the greetings, not by a human being, but from your own Lord, and delivered by one of the most highest exalted angels, Jibreel AS, to deliver those greetings. What an honour to receive the news of how your palace will look like in Jannah. What an honour for a woman, life, death and legacy!

Such a person will then say, 'O Muhammad! Such a person then will say "O Muhammad! The snake will encircle his neck and bite his cheeks and say, 'I am your wealth, I am your treasure. Muawiya said, 'This verse is revealed regarding the people of the scriptures. Many people came to me as if they had not seen me before. So I told this to 'Uthman who said to me, "You may depart and live nearby if you wish.
Biography of Prophet Muhammad (s) with Links to Comparative Religion
Volume 2, Book 24, Number : Narrated by Al-Ahnaf bin Qais While I was sitting with some people from Quraish, a man with very rough hair, clothes, and appearance came and stood in front of us, greeted us and said, "Inform those who hoard wealth, that a stone will be heated in the Hell-fire and will be put on the nipples of their breasts till it comes out from the bones of their shoulders and then put on the bones of their shoulders till it comes through the nipples of their breasts the stone will be moving and hitting.
I said to him, "I think the people disliked what you had said. Do you see the mountain of Uhud? These people do not understand and collect worldly wealth. Give in charity as a time will come upon you when a person will wander about with his object of charity and will not find anybody to accept it, and one who will be requested to take it will say, "If you had brought it yesterday, would have taken it, but to-day I am not in need of it.
Allah's Apostle said, "As regards stealing and robberies, there will shortly come a time when a caravan will go to Mecca from Medina without any guard. And regarding poverty, The Hour Day of Judgment will not be established till one of you wanders about with his object of charity and will not find anybody to accept it And no doubt each one of you will stand in front of Allah and there will be neither a curtain nor an interpreter between him and Allah, and Allah will ask him, 'Did not I give you wealth? Allah will further ask, 'Didn't I send a messenger to you? And so, any each one of you should save himself from the fire even by giving half of a date-fruit in charity.
And if you do not find a half date-fruit, then you can do it through saying a good pleasant word to your brethren. See Hadith No. A man came and distributed objects of charity in abundance. And they the people said, "He is showing off. Those were the days of poverty and to-day some of us have one hundred thousand.
Volume 2, Book 24, Number : Narrated by 'Adi bin Hatim heard the Prophet saying "Save yourself from Hell-fire even by giving half a date-fruit in charity. Then the Prophet came in and I informed him about this story. He said, "Whoever is put to trial by these daughters and he treats them generously with benevolence then these daughters will act as a shield for him from Hell-Fire. Which charity is the most superior in reward?
Do not delay it to the time of approaching death and then say, 'Give so much to such and such, and so much to such and such. When Zainab bint Jahsh died first of all in the caliphate of 'Umar , we came to know that the long hand was a symbol of practicing charity, so she was the first to follow the Prophet and she used to love to practice charity.
Sauda died later in the caliphate of Muawiya. He went out with his object of charity and unknowingly gave it to a thief. Next morning the people said that he had given his object of charity to a thief. On hearing that he said, "O Allah! All the praises are for you. I will give alms again. Next morning the people said that he had given his alms to an adulteress last night.
The man said, "O Allah! I gave my alms to an adulteress. The people next morning said that he had given his alms to a wealthy person. He said, "O Allah! I had given alms to a thief, to an adulteress and to a wealthy man. The Prophet got me engaged and then got me married. One day I went to the Prophet with a complaint. My father Yazid had taken some gold coins for charity and kept them with a man in the mosque to give them to the poor But I went and took them and brought them to him my father.
My father said, "By Allah! I did not intend to give them to you. On that Allah's Apostle said, "O Yazid! You will be rewarded for what you intended. O Man! Whatever you have taken is yours. They are: 1 a just ruler; 2 a young man who has been brought up in the worship of Allah, i. Give in charity for Allah's cause because a time will come when a person will carry his object of charity from place to place and he will not find any person to take it and any person whom he shall request to take it, I will reply, 'If you had brought it yesterday I would have taken it, but today I am not in need of it.
The reward of one will not decrease the reward of the others.
And start giving first to your dependents. One should start giving first to his dependents. And the best object of charity is that which is given by a wealthy person from the money which is left after his expenses. And whoever abstains from asking others for some financial help, Allah will give him and save him from asking others, Allah will make him self-sufficient.
The upper hand is that of the giver and the lower hand is that of the beggar. 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. Then he went towards the women along with Bilal. He preached them and ordered them to give in charity. And some amongst the women started giving their fore-arm bangles and ear-rings.
Volume 2, Book 24, Number : Narrated by Abu Burda bin Abu Musa That his father said, "Whenever a beggar came to Allah's Apostle 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. Spend in Allah's Cause as much as you can afford.
How did he say it? You need not be afraid of it as there is a closed door between you and it. Hudhaifa said, "The door was 'Umar. Hudhaifa replied in the affirmative and added, "He knew it as one knows that there will be a night before the tomorrow morning. Shall I be rewarded for those deeds? The husband will get a reward because of his earnings and the woman because of her spending.
Compensate every person who spends in Your Cause,' and the other angel says, 'O Allah! Destroy every miser. If someone has nothing to give, what will he do? The Prophet asked 'Aisha for something to eat. The Prophet said to her, "Bring it as it has reached its place. And there is no Zakat on less than five Awsuq. A special measure of food-grains, and one Wasq equals 60 Sa's.
For gold 20, Dinars i. He wrote that it could be accepted from him as Zakat, and the collector of Zakat would return him 20 Dirhams or two sheep; and if the Zakat payer had not a Bint Makhad, but he had Ibn Labun a two year old he-camel then it could be accepted as his Zakat, but he would not be paid anything. Volume 2, Book 24, Number : Narrated by Ibn Abbas I am a witness that Allah's Apostle offered the Id prayer before delivering the sermon and then he thought that the women would not be able to hear him because of the distance , so he went to them along with Bilal who was spreading his garment.
The Prophet advised and ordered them to give in charity. So the women started giving their ornaments in charity. The sub-narrator Aiyub pointed towards his ears and neck meaning that they gave ornaments from those places such as ear-rings and necklaces. Volume 2, Book 24, Number : Narrated by Anas Abu Bakr wrote to me what was made compulsory by Allah's Apostle and that was regarding the payments of Zakat : Neither the property of different people may be taken together nor the joint property may be split for fear of paying more, or receiving less Zakat.
The Prophet p. The matter of emigration is very hard. Have you got camels? Do you pay their Zakat? If the number of camels increases to five, the owner has to pay one sheep as Zakat. As regards the Zakat for the flock of sheep; if they are between forty and one-hundred-and-twenty sheep, one sheep is to be paid; and if they are between one-hundred-and-twenty to two hundred sheep , two sheep are to be paid; and if they are between two-hundred to three-hundred sheep , three sheep are to be paid; and for over three-hundred sheep, for every extra hundred sheep, one sheep is to be paid as Zakat.
And if somebody has got less than forty sheep, no Zakat is required, but if he wants to give, he can. For silver the Zakat is one-fortieth of the lot i. If they pay me the Zakat and with-hold even a she-kid which they used to pay during the life-time of Allah's Apostle, I will fight with them for it. First of all invite them to worship Allah alone and when they come to know Allah, inform them that Allah has enjoined on them, five prayers in every day and night; and if they start offering these prayers, inform them that Allah has enjoined on them, the Zakat.
And it is to be taken from the rich amongst them and given to the poor amongst them; and if they obey you in that, take Zakat from them and avoid don't take the best property of the people as Zakat. Allah's Apostle used to go there and used to drink its nice water. Allah, the Blessed, the Superior says: By no means shall you attain righteousness, unless you spend in charity of that which you love.
And no doubt, Bairuha' garden is the most beloved of all my property to me. So I want to give it in charity in Allah's Cause. I expect its reward from Allah. O Allah's Apostle! Spend it where Allah makes you think it feasible. It is useful property. I have heard what you have said O Abu Talha , and I think it would be proper if you gave it to your Kith and kin.
After finishing the prayer, he delivered the sermon and ordered the people to give alms. He said, "O people! Give alms. Give alms, for I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-Fire were you women. What is the reason for it? You curse frequently, and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. O women, some of you can lead a cautious wise man astray. It is Zainab. He said, "Yes, allow her to enter. Then she said, "O Prophet of Allah! Today you ordered people to give alms and I had an ornament and intended to give it as alms, but Ibn Masud said that he and his children deserved it more than anybody else.
Your husband and your children had more right to it than anybody else.

Then he said, "The things I am afraid of most for your sake concerning what will befall you after me is the pleasures and splendors of the world and its beauties which will be disclosed to you. Can the good bring forth evil? It was said to that person, "What is wrong with you? You are talking to the Prophet p. Then the Prophet wiped off his sweat and said, "Where is the questioner? Then he said, "Good never brings forth evil. Indeed it is like what grows on the banks of a water-stream which either kill or make the animals sick, except if an animal eats its fill the Khadira a kind of vegetable and then faces the sun, and then defecates and urinates and grazes again.
No doubt this wealth is sweet and green. Blessed is the wealth of a Muslim from which he gives to the poor, the orphans and to needy travelers. Or the Prophet said something similar to it No doubt, whoever takes it illegally will be like the one who eats but is never satisfied, and his wealth will be a witness against him on the Day of Resurrection. Give alms even from your ornaments.
So she said to 'Abdullah, "Will you ask Allah's Apostle whether it will be sufficient for me to spend part of the Zakat on you and the orphans who are under my protection? Bilal passed by us and we asked him, 'Ask the Prophet whether it is permissible for me to spend the Zakat on my husband and the orphans under my protection. So Bilal went inside and asked the Prophet regarding our problem.
The Prophet said, "Which Zainab? Shall I receive a reward if I spend for the sustenance of Abu Salama's offspring, and in fact they are also my sons? But you are unfair in asking Zakat from Khalid as he is keeping his armor for Allah's Cause for Jihad. They again asked him for something and he again gave them. And then they asked him and he gave them again till all that was with him finished. And then he said "If I had anything. I would not keep it away from you. Remember Whoever abstains from asking others, Allah will make him contented, and whoever tries to make himself self-sufficient, Allah will make him self-sufficient.
And whoever remains patient, Allah will make him patient. Nobody can be given a blessing better and greater than patience. Again I asked and he gave it to me. And then he said, "O Hakim! This property is like a sweet fresh fruit; whoever takes it without greediness, he is blessed in it, and whoever takes it with greediness, he is not blessed in it, and he is like a person who eats but is never satisfied; and the upper giving hand is better than the lower receiving hand.
Then 'Umar during his caliphate called him to give him his share but he refused. On that 'Umar said, "O Muslims! I would like you to witness that I offered Hakim his share from this booty and he refused to take it. Volume 2, Book 24, Number : Narrated by 'Umar Allah's Apostle used to give me something but I would say to him, "would you give it to a poorer and more needy one than l? If you are given something from this property, without asking for it or having greed for it take it; and if not given, do not run for it.
He will proceed on till he will hold the ring of the door of Paradise and then Allah will exalt him to Maqam Mahmud the privilege of intercession, etc. And all the people of the gathering will send their praises to Allah. Volume 2, Book 24, Number : Narrated by Abu Huraira The Prophet said, "The poor person is not the one who asks a morsel or two of meals from the others, but the poor is the one who has nothing and is ashamed to beg from others.
Vain talks, useless talk that you talk too much or about others.
