Hadith on Charity: Contentment and Gratitude and Helping Others

📖Sahih Muslim 2963 c
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: Look at those who stand at a lower level than you but don’t look at those who stand at a higher level than you, for that is better-suited that you do not disparage Allah’s favors.

  • By looking at those who are less fortunate, we can recognize the blessings we have been given and feel a sense of responsibility towards those who are struggling. This can inspire us to help and support them in whatever ways we can, whether it is through donating money, volunteering our time, or simply showing compassion and empathy towards their struggles. Therefore, this hadith encourages us to not only appreciate the blessings we have but also to use them for the benefit of others, particularly those who are less fortunate and in need of our help and support. In this way, we can fulfill our duty as Muslims to care for and support our fellow human beings, and we can also earn the blessings and reward of Allah for our good deeds.
