Pearl of Wisdom

There is a characteristic that whoever adopts, the world and the Hereafter will obey him, and he will gain Heaven.' He was asked, 'What is it O Messenger of Allah (SAWA)?' He said, 'Godwariness. Whoever wants to be the most honourable of people should be wary of Allah Almighty.' He then recited: ''And whoever is wary of Allah, He shall make a way out for him, and provide for him from whence he does not reckon.'

Sermon 141 Against misplaced generosity

He who shows generosity to those who have no claim to it or who are not fit for it would not earn anything except the praise of the ignoble and appreciation of bad persons, although as long s he continues giving, the ignorant will say how generous his hand is, even though in the affairs of Allah he is a miser.

Therefore, to whosoever Allah gives wealth he should use it in extending good behaviour to his kinsmen, in entertaining, in releasing prisoners and the afflicted; in giving to the poor and to debtors, and he should endure (the troubles arising out of) the fulfilment of rights (of others) and hardships in expectation of reward. Certainly, the achievement of these qualities is the height of greatness in this world and achievement of the distinctions of the next world; if Allah so wills.
