Good deed #446 – Do not beg

Abu Kabsha reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “I swear by Allah regarding three qualities about which I will tell you, so preserve them: the wealth of a servant is not decreased by charity, Allah will increase the honor of one who patiently endures oppression, and a servant does not open a door of begging except that Allah will open for him a door of poverty.”

Narrated Az-Zubair bin Al-Awwam (RA): The Prophet (PBUH) said, “It is better for anyone of you to take a rope and bring a bundle of wood over his back and sell it, and Allah will save his face because of that, rather than to ask the people who may or may not give.”
(Hadith No. 1471, Book of Zakat, Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 2).
Narrated Abdullah bin Umar (RA): The Prophet (PBUH) said, “A man keeps on asking others for something till he comes on the ‘Day of Resurrection’ having no flesh on his face.”
(Hadith No. 1474, Book of Zakat, Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 2).

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah (RA) said: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said, “Whoever begs from the people in order to accumulate wealth, it is as if he is asking for a live coal, so let him ask for a little or a lot.”
