Iftar-have our share

Ramadhan Kareem to all my brothers and sisters,

May this Ramadhan be the most beneficial for us for we never know if we can meet Ramadhan again next year. I would like to share some hadith with you regarding giving charity. Let's share some of our blessings with fellow Muslim for they will be our investment in the hereafter to save us from trouble, and believe me...there will be a LOT of trouble!

Bukhari :: Book 1 :: Volume 2 :: Hadith 11
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr:

A man asked the Prophet , "What sort of deeds or (what qualities of) Islam are good?" The Prophet replied, 'To feed (the poor) and greet those whom you know and those whom you do not Know.

Bukhari :: Book 2 :: Volume 24 :: Hadith 524
Narrated Abu Burda:

from his father from his grandfather that the Prophet said, "Every Muslim has to give in charity." The people asked, "O Allah's Prophet! If someone has nothing to give, what will he do?" He said, "He should work with his hands and benefit himself and also give in charity (from what he earns)." The people further asked, "If he cannot find even that?" He replied, "He should help the needy who appeal for help." Then the people asked, "If he cannot do that?" He replied, "Then he should perform good deeds and keep away from evil deeds and this will be regarded as charitable deeds."
