Hadith on Charity: Spend in the Way of Allah

📖Sahih al-Bukhari 5352
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Allah said, ‘O son of Adam! Spend, and I shall spend on you.”

  • The meaning of this hadith is that Allah encourages people to be generous and spend in His cause, whether it is by giving charity, helping the needy, or supporting good causes. Allah promises to reward such spending by spending on the person who gives, either by providing them with more wealth and sustenance, or by blessing them in other ways. The hadith emphasizes that spending in the way of Allah is not a loss or a waste, but rather an investment that brings great returns in this life and the hereafter.
