HADEETH

Narrated `Aisha (RA): The Prophet ( )said, "The word 'Ar-Rahm' (womb) derives its name from 'Ar- Rahman' (i.e. Allah).

Allah said: "Would you be pleased that I will keep good relation with the one who will keep good relation with you, and I will sever the relation with the one who will sever the relation with you. It said: 'Yes, 'O my Lord.' Allah said (to it), 'That is for you.''

Asking for monitory help

HADEETH Narrated Hakim bin Hizam: The Prophet (pbuh) said, "The upper hand is better than the lower hand (i.e. he who gives in charity is better than him who takes it).

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."
(Sahih Bukhari Book #24, Hadith #508)

Woe to every backbiter, slanderer

HADEETH

Abu Huraira reported: Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Do you know what is backbiting? They (the Companions) said: Allah and His Messenger know best. Thereupon he [the Holy Prophet (pbuh)] said: backbiting implies your talking about your brother in a manner which he does not like. It was said to him: What is your opinion about this that if I actually find (that failing) in my brother which I made a mention of? He said: If (that failing) is actually found (in him) what you assert, you in fact backbited him, and if that is not in him it is a slander (tauhmat).
(Sahih Muslim Book #032, Hadith #6265)

O you who believe! Avoid much suspicion: for suspicion in some cases is a sin: And spy not on each other nor backbite others behind their backs. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Nay, you would abhor itBut fear Allah: For Allah is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.
Al-Quran 49:12 (Al-Hujurat)

Making fun of others

O you who believe! No people shall laugh at (another) people, it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former). Nor shall women laugh at other women, it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former). Do not find fault with yourself (your own people), nor defame by calling each other by (offensive) nicknames: Evil is the name of wickedness after faith. And whosoever does not repent, and then such are indeed wrongdoers.)
Al-Quran 49:11 (Al-Hujurat)

(Al-Bukhari)

Example of Abu Bakr (RA)


Background of the ayah 22 of surah Noor through which Allah told Abu Bakr (RA) to forgive his cousin and resume the monitory help after he spread the slander about Aishah (RA) targeting her chastity
The following Ayah was revealed concerning As-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, when he swore that he would not help Mistah bin Uthathah after he said what he said about `A'ishah, [Hadith about story of Ifk (forged statement)]. When Allah revealed the innocence of the Mother of the believers, `A'ishah, and the believers were happy and content with the outcome of this incident, and those believers who had talked about the matter repented, and the prescribed punishment had been carried out upon those on whom it was carried out, then Allah started to soften the heart of As-Siddiq towards his relative Mistah bin Uthathah. Mistah was the cousin of As-Siddiq, the son of his maternal aunt, and he was a poor man with no wealth except whatever Abu Bakr spent on him. He was one of those who had migrated for the sake of Allah. Allah accepted his repentance from that (sin of slander) and the prescribed punishment was carried out on him. (Ref:Tafseer ibn katheer 24:22)

(22. And let not those among you who are blessed with graces and wealth swear not to give to their kinsmen, the poor, and those who left their homes for Allah's cause. Let them pardon and forgive. Do you not love that Allah should forgive you And Allah is OftForgiving, Most Merciful.)

Al-Quran 24:22 (An-Noor)

Thats what one thinks but its not the reality

Sometimes you do good to others but combine it with some mistakes that nullify the effect of your good act

Do not remind people of your generosity or hurt their feelings

Do not remind people of your generosity

(262. Those who spend their wealth in the cause of Allah, and do not follow up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or with injury, their reward is with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.) (263. Kind words and forgiving of faults are better than Sadaqah (charity) followed by injury. And Allah is Rich (free of all needs) and He is Most Forbearing.)

Al-Quran 2:262-263 (Al-Baqarah)

HADEETH Abu Dharr said that the Messenger of Allah said, Three persons whom Allah shall neither speak to on the Day of Resurrection nor look at nor purify, and they shall receive a painful torment: he who reminds (the people) of what he gives away, he who lengthens his clothes below the ankles and he who swears an oath while lying, to sell his merchandise.
Muslim

Do not make others know of your generosity story (to get admired) that may put down the one whom you did the favor to

(264. O you who believe! Do not render in vain your Sadaqah (charity) by reminders of your generosity or by injury, like him who spends his wealth to be seen of men, and he does not believe in Allah, nor in the Last Day. His likeness is the likeness of a smooth rock on which is a little dust; on it falls heavy rain which leaves it bare. They are not able to do anything with what they have earned. And Allah does not guide the disbelieving people.)

Al-Quran 2:264 (Al-Baqarah)

Keep your intentions pure for Allah subhana watala with no expectations for favors from others

Purity in intention

272. Not upon you (Muhammad ) is their guidance, but Allah guides whom He wills. And whatever you spend in good, it is for yourselves, when you spend not except seeking Allah's Face. And whatever you spend in good, it will be repaid to you in full, and you shall not be wronged. Al-Quran 2:272(Al-Baqarah)

(265. And the parable of those who spend their wealth seeking Allah's pleasure while they in their own selves are sure and certain that Allah will reward them (for their spending in His cause), is that of a garden on a height; heavy rain falls on it and it doubles its yield of harvest. And if it does not receive heavy rain, light rain suffices it. And Allah is All-Seer (knows well) of what you do.)

Al-Quran 2:265(Al-Baqarah)

Compare with 2:264

Its for your own self

And whatever you spend in good, it is for yourselves, when you spend not except seeking Allah's Face.

Al-Quran 2:272 (Al-Baqarah)

(2. Verily, We have sent down the Book to you in truth. So, worship Allah by doing religious deeds sincerely for Him only.)
Al-Quran 39:2(Al-Zamar)

(17. And those with Taqwa will be far removed from it.) (18. He who gives of his wealth for self-purification.) (19. And who has (in mind) no favor from anyone to be paid back.) (20. Except to seek the Face of his Lord, the Most High.) (21. He, surely, will be pleased.)

Al-Quran 92:17-21 (Al-Lail)

HADEETH

Its ok to let others know of your charity if the intention is not to show off but there is an apparent wisdom behind disclosing the charity. For example: people might imitate this righteous act.

(271. If you disclose your Sadaqat (almsgiving), it is well; but if you conceal them and give them to the poor, that is BETTER for you. (Allah) will expiate you some of your sins. And Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do.)

Al-Quran 2:271 (Al-Baqarah)

Spend of the good things which you have

Spend of the good things which you have

(267.O you who believe! Spend of the good things which you have (legally) earned, and of that which We have produced from the earth for you, and do not aim at that which is bad to spend from it, (though) you would not accept it save if you close your eyes and tolerate therein. And know that Allah is Rich (free of all needs), and worthy of all praise.)

Al-Quran 2:267 (Al-Baqarah)

Sincere effort to reconcile despite of others bad attitude RARE

Keep it up

HADEETH

Abu Huraira reported that a person said: Allah's Messenger, I have relatives with whom I try to have close relationship, but they sever (this relation). I treat them well, but they treat me ill. I am sweet to them but they are harsh towards me. Upon this he (the Holy Prophet) said: If it is so as you say, then you in fact throw hot ashes (upon their faces) and there would always remain with you on behalf of Allah (an Angel to support you) who would keep you dominant over them so long as you adhere to this (path of righteousness).
Sahih Muslim 2558 a

HADEETH

Abu Hurayra said, "A man came to the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and said, 'Messenger of Allah! I have relatives with whom I maintain ties while they cut me off. I am good to They behave foolishly towards me while I am forbearing towards them.' The Prophet (pbuh) said, 'If things are as you said, it is as if you were putting hot ashes on them and you will not lack a supporter against them from Allah as long as you continue to do that.'"
Al-Adab Al-Mufrad 52 Sahih (Al-Albani)

them while they are bad to me.

(177. It is not Birr that you turn your faces towards east and (or) west; but Birr is the one who believes in Allah, the Last Day, the Angels, the Book, the Prophets and gives his wealth, in spite of love for it, to the kinsfolk, to the orphans, and to Al-Masakin (the poor), and to the wayfarer, and to those who ask, and to set servants free, performs As-Salah (Iqamat-As-Salah), and gives the Zakah, and who fulfill their covenant when they make it, and who are patient in extreme poverty and ailment (disease) and at the time of fighting (during the battles). Such are the people of the truth and they are Al-Muttaqun (the pious).)

Al-Quran 2:177 (Al-Baqarah)

(38. So, give to the kindred his due, and to Al-Miskin and to the wayfarer. That is best for those who seek Allah's Face; and it is they who will be successful.)

Al-Quran 30:38 (Al-Room)

(215. They ask you (O Muhammad ) what they should spend. Say: "Whatever you spend of good must be for parents and kindred and orphans and Al-Masakin (the poor) and the wayfarer, and whatever you do of good deeds, truly, Allah knows it well.'')

Al-Quran 2:215 (Al-Baqarah)

What stops you from spending where Allah asks you to spend?

(268. Shaytan threatens you with poverty and orders you to commit Fahsha' (evil deeds) whereas Allah promises you forgiveness from Himself and bounty, and Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knower.)
Al-Quran 2:268 (Al-Baqarah)

But Allah says:

And whatever you spend in good, it is for yourselves, when you spend not except seeking Allah's Face. And whatever you spend in good, it will be repaid to you in full, and you shall not be wronged.) Al-Quran 2:272 (Al-Baqarah)

HADEETH

Ibn Masood narrated: When the prophet (pbuh) asked, which one of you loves the property of his heirs more than his own property ? He was told , O messanger of Allah, no one. So he said, Your property is that which you send forward (in charity), but that which you hold back belongs to your heirs.
Al-Bukhari

HADEETH

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger ( )as saying: A servant says, My wealth. my wealth, but out of his wealth three things are only his: whatever he eats and makes use of (which is consumed) or by means of which he dresses himself and it wears out or he gives as charity, and this is what he stored for himself (as a reward for the Hereafter), and what is beyond this (it is of no use to you) because you are to depart and leave it for other people.
