Excerpts from ~ Ramadaan 1435 Programmesbismillahh


وعن أبي كبشة الأنماري أنه سمع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول : ” ثلاث أقسم عليهن وأحدثكم حديثا فاحفظوه فأما الذي أقسم عليهن فإنه ما نقص مال عبد من صدقة ولا ظلم عبد مظلمة صبر عليها إلا زاده الله بها عزا ولا فتح عبد باب مسألة إلا فتح الله عليه باب فقر وأما الذي أحدثكم فاحفظوه ” فقال : ” إنما الدنيا لأربعة نفر : عبد رزقه الله مالا وعلما فهو يتقي فيه ربه ويصل رحمه ويعمل لله فيه بحقه فهذا بأفضل المنازل . وعبد رزقه الله علما ولم يرزقه مالا فهو صادق النية ويقول : لو أن لي مالا لعملت بعمل فلان فأجرهما سواء . وعبد رزقه الله مالا ولم يرزقه علما فهو يتخبط في ماله بغير علم لا يتقي فيه ربه ولا يصل فيه رحمه ولا يعمل فيه بحق فهذا بأخبث المنازل وعبد لم يرزقه الله مالا ولا علما فهو يقول : لو أن لي مالا لعملت فيه بعمل فلان فهو نيته ووزرهما سواء “. ~ رواه الترمذي وقال : هذا حديث صحيح

 صلى الله عليه وسلم Hazrat Abu Kabshah al-Anmari RA narrates that Rasulullah

said, “There are three things which I swear to be true, and I shall tell you a Hadith, so keep it in mind

The Three things which I swear to be true are ;

(1) Giving Sadaqah (charity) does not reduce one’s wealth ;

(2) If anyone is oppressed and he faces it with patience, Allah Ta’ala will increase his honour ;

(3) If anyone begins to beg (from people), Allah Ta’ala opens up the doors of poverty on him…

And the Hadith that I am going to tell you to keep in mind, is that the World has only Four types of people:

1) A man whom Allah provides with wealth and knowledge, in which he fears his Lord and joins ties of relationship, acting in it as is due to Him for the sake of Allah,  is in the most excellent position.

2) A man whom Allah provides with knowledge but not with wealth, who says with a sincere intention that if, he had wealth he would act as so and so does, their reward will be equal.

3) A man whom Allah provides with wealth but not with knowledge, in which he acts in a random manner ignorantly, not fearing his Lord regarding it, or using it to join ties of relationship, or dealing with it in a right way, this man is in the worst condition.

4) A man whom Allah provides with neither wealth nor knowledge, who says that if he had wealth he would deal with it as so and so does and has the above mentioned evil intention, the sin they have to bear being equal.”
