Benefit of Charity After Death
Abu Huraira (RadhiAllahu ‘anhu) reported: Allah’s Messenger ﷺ as saying:
When a man dies, his acts come to an end, but three, recurring charity or knowledge (by which people) benefit, or a pious son, who prays for him (for the deceased).
[Sahih Muslim – Book 13 – Hadith 4005]
Charity Doesn’t Decrease Wealth
Abu Huraira (Radhi-Allahu ‘anhu) reported:
Allah’s Messenger (salAllahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying:
Charity does not in any way decrease the wealth and the servant who forgives, Allah adds to his respect; and the one who shows humility, Allah elevates him in the estimation (of the people).
[Sahih Muslim – Book 032: Hadith 6264]
Give Even a Date
`Adi bin Hatim (Radhiallahu anhu) reported,
Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:
“Guard yourselves against the Fire (of Hell) even if it be only with half a date-fruit (given in charity); and if you cannot afford even that, you should at least say a good word.”
