Page 35 - Your relationship with Allah

Basic HTML Version

It was narrated that Abu Huraira radiallahu anhu said: The Messenger of Allah Sallallahu alaihe
wasallam said: “Whoever gives charity equal to a date from good (halal) earnings – for Allah does not
accept anything but that which is good – Allah will take it in His right hand and tend it for the one who
gave it as any one of you tends his foal, until it becomes like a mountain.”
Always remember the words of Allah, “And no moving (living) creature is there on earth but its
provision is due from Allah. And He knows its dwelling place and its deposit (in the uterus or grave).
All is in a Clear Book (Al-Lawh Al-Mahfooz — the Book of Decrees with Allah).”
Do not take anything from your husband’s wealth without his permission
It is not permissible for the wife to take anything from her husband’s wealth except with his
permission, unless he is stingy with her in spending what he is obliged to spend. In that case it is
permissible for her to take what is sufficient for her and her children, on a reasonable basis
, because
of the report narrated from ‘Aa’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her), which says that Hind bint
‘Utbah (may Allah be pleased with her) said: O Messenger of Allah, Abu Sufyaan is a stingy man and
does not give me enough for me and my children, unless I take from him without him knowing. He
said: “Take what is sufficient for you and your children on a reasonable basis.”
Spend on your parents if they are poor and you are rich
The child – male or female – is obliged to spend on his (or her) parents if they are poor and he is
rich. The obligation of spending on them is indicated by the Qur’aan, Sunnah and scholarly consensus
Allah says “And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to
your parents”
