CHARITY

Abu Hurayrah رضي الله عنه reported that the Messenger of Allah صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم said:
“Charity is due for every joint of every one, on every day the sun rises.
Administering of justice between two men is also a charity;
Assisting a man to ride upon his beast or helping him load his bags upon it is charity.
A good word is charity; and
Every step that you take towards prayer is charity and
Removing harmful things from the street is charity”

Ibn Abbas رضي الله عنه narrated that the Messenger of Allah صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم said:
“There are two blessings which people lose: (They are) Health and free time (for doing good)”

• Al-Bukhary in Kitab Ar-Riqaq (Book of Heart softness) no. 6412

The human being will be held accountable for these graces and favors on the Day of Resurrection, as Allah says,

Which means, Then, on that Day, you shall be asked about the delight (you indulged in, in this world)!
• [AlQuran – 102:8]

Interpreting the above verse, Ibn Abbas said , “Delight here refers to the soundness of bodies, and senses of hearing and eyesight for which people will be held accountable as, Allah says,

Which means, Verily! The hearing, and the sight, and the heart, of each of those you will be questioned (by Allah).
• AlQuran – [17:36]

Allah granted uncountable blessings on His worshippers as He says.

Which means, if you count the Blessings of Allah, never will you be able to count them
• [AlQuran – 14:34]

Allah asked His Worshippers to thank Him for these blessings and He is Pleased with such thankfulness. Sulayman At-taymy said, “Allah granted blessings on His worshippers commensurate with His Magnitude, He enjoined them to thank Him for them and He is pleased with their thankful confession of His blessings and their verbal praise of Him”

Abdullah bin ghannam رضي الله عنه reported that the Prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم said:
“Whoever says in the morning ‘O Allah whatever blessing you grant me or any of Your creature is from You Alone and there is none to be associated with You, Praise to be You and thank You for it, ‘has thanked Allah for this day. Whoever says it in the evening has thanked Allah for this night”
