Sayings of Prophet Mohammad (SAW)… Sahih Bukhari

1) Volume 1, Book 11, Number 629 :

Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Prophet said, “Allah will give shade, to seven, on the Day when there will be no shade but His. (These seven persons are) 1. a just ruler, 2. a youth who has been brought up in the worship of Allah (i.e. worships Allah sincerely from childhood), 3. a man whose heart is attached to the mosques (i.e. to pray the compulsory prayers in the mosque in congregation), 4. two persons who love each other only for Allah’s sake and they meet and part in Allah’s cause only, 5. a man who refuses the call of a charming woman of noble birth for illicit intercourse with her and says: I am afraid of Allah, 6. a man who gives charitable gifts so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given (i.e. nobody knows how much he has given in Charity), 7. and a person who remembers Allah in seclusion and his eyes are then flooded with tears.”

2) Volume 2, Book 24, Number 491 :

Narrated by Abu Huraira
Allah’s Apostle said, “If one give in Charity what equals one date-fruit fro the honestly-earned money and Allah accepts only the honestly earned money –Allah takes it in His right (hand) and then enlarges its reward for that person (who has given it), as anyone of you brings up his baby horse, so much it is that it becomes as big as a mountain.”

3) Volume 2, Book 24, Number 500 :

Narrated by Abu Huraira
A man came to the Prophet and asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! Which Charity is the most superior in reward?” He replied, “The Charity which you practice while you are healthy, niggardly and afraid of poverty and wish to become wealthy. Do not delay it to the time of approaching death and then say, ‘Give so much to such and such, and so much to such and such.’ And it has already belonged to such and such (as it is too late).”

4) Volume 2, Book 24, Number 506 :

Narrated by ‘Aisha
Allah’s Apostle said, “When a woman gives in Charity some of the foodstuff (which she has in her house) without spoiling it, she will receive the reward for what she has spent, and her husband will receive the reward because of his earning, and the storekeeper will also have a reward similar to it. The reward of one will not decrease the reward of the others . ”

5) Volume 2, Book 24, Number 517 :
Narrated by Hakim bin Hizam
I said to Allah’s Apostle, “Before embracing Islam I used to do good deeds like giving in Charity, slave-manumitting, and the keeping of good relations with Kith and kin. Shall I be rewarded for those deeds?” The Prophet replied, “You became Muslim with all those good deeds (Without losing their reward).”

6) Volume 3, Book 31, Number 121 :

Narrated by Abu Huraira
Allah’s Apostle said, “Whoever gives two kinds (of things or property) in Charity for Allah’s Cause, will be called from the gates of Paradise and will be addressed, ‘O slaves of Allah! Here is prosperity.’ So, whoever was amongst the people who used to offer their prayers, will be called from the gate of the prayer; and whoever was amongst the people who used to participate in Jihad, will be called from the gate of Jihad; and whoever was amongst those who used to observe fasts, will be called from the gate of Ar-Raiyan; whoever was amongst those who used to give in Charity, will be called from the gate of Charity.” Abu Bakr said, “Let my parents be sacrificed for you, O Allah’s Apostle! No distress or need will befall him who will be called from those gates. Will there be any one who will be called from all these gates?” The Prophet replied, “Yes, and I hope you will be one of them.”

7) Volume 2, Book 24, Number 502 :

Narrated by Abu Huraira
Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) said, “A man said that he would give something in Charity. He went out with his object of Charity and unknowingly gave it to a thief. Next morning the people said that he had given his object of Charity to a thief. (On hearing that) he said, “O Allah! All the praises are for you. I will give alms again.” And so he again went out with his alms and (unknowingly) gave it to an adulteress. Next morning the people said that he had given his alms to an adulteress last night. The man said, “O Allah! All the praises are for you. (I gave my alms) to an adulteress. I will give alms again.” So he went out with his alms again and (unknowingly) gave it to a rich person. (The people) next morning said that he had given his alms to a wealthy person. He said, “O Allah! All the praises are for you. (I had given alms) to a thief, to an adulteress and to a wealthy man.” Then someone came and said to him, “The alms which you gave to the thief, might make him abstain from stealing, and that given to the adulteress might make her abstain from illegal sexual intercourse (adultery), and that given to the wealthy man might make him take a lesson from it and spend his wealth which Allah has given him, in Allah’s cause.”
