Spending in the Way of Allah

The Ahmadiyya Gazette, May – June 1993

Ibn Mas’ud relates that the Holy Prophet said: Only two persons are worthy of being envied; a person upon whom Allah bestows riches and gives him the power to spend in a righteous cause; and a person upon whom Allah bestows wisdom by which he judges and which he teaches. (Bokhari and Muslim)

Ibn Mas’ud relates that the Holy Prophet asked: Which of you loves the property of his heir more than his own property? He was told: Messenger of Allah, there is not one of us but loves his own property better. He said: His property is that which he has sent forward; that which he holds back belongs to his heir. (Bokhari)
