win over the hearts as mentioned earlier. The purpose behind it was to help increase Faith in their hearts and make
them rise above mundane interests as sincere Muslims.

Jubair bin Mut`im (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: While I was walking with the Prophet (PBUH)
on his return from the battle of Hunain, a few bedouins caught hold of him and began to demand their shares. They
forced him to a tree and someone snatched away his cloak (which got entangled in that thorny tree). The Prophet
(PBUH) said,
"Give my cloak back to me. Were I to have camels equal to the number of these trees, I would have
distributed them all among you, and you would not have found me a miser, or a liar, or a coward.''
This Hadith also throws light on the issue of distribution of charities for winning over hearts;
besides, it depicts the sublime morals of the Prophet (PBUH) as to how he tolerated the harshness and discourtesy of
bedouins with patience and humbleness. It also reveals that negative attributes like stinginess, falsehood and
cowardice should not be attributed to Imam
(religious leader).

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"Wealth is not
diminished by giving (in charity). Allah augments the honour of one who forgives; and one who displays
humbleness towards another seeking the pleasure of Allah, Allah exalts him in ranks.''
This Hadith has described three facts. First, Sadaqah does not diminish wealth because Allah blesses
the rest of it and thus recompenses it. Besides, the loss of wealth of the almsgiver will certainly be rewarded on the
Day of Resurrection. Second, man thinks that a conciliatory or forgiving attitude will weaken his position in the eyes
of others. He erroneously takes it as his disparagement and insult. However, this Hadith reveals the reality that by
this way, Allah (SWT) raises his image and he is not belittled at all, because a forgiving gesture will enhance his
esteem in the hearts of people, and in the Hereafter, Divine reward for it will definitely lead to his elevation. Third,
if somebody displays affability and humbleness in his behaviour, Allah (SWT) will project his prestige and dignity
into the hearts of others or bless him in the Hereafter.

Abu Kabshah `Amr bin Sa`d (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
swear by Allah for three (qualities) which I am going to tell you about. Remember them well:
1) The wealth of a man will not diminish by Sadaqah (charity).
(2) Allah augments the honour of a man who endures an oppression patiently.
(3) He who opens a gate of begging, Allah opens a gate of poverty (or he said a word similar to it).''
He (PBUH) also said,
"Remember well what I am going to tell you: The world is for four kinds of people. (1) One
upon whom Allah has bestowed wealth and knowledge and so he fears his Rubb in respect to them, joins the ties of
blood relationship and acknowledges the Rights of Allah on him (and fulfills them); this type will have the best
