HADITH OF THE DAY:
ACKNOWLEDGE THE RIGHTS OF THE POOR
A man once said to the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him):
"I have plenty of property, a large family, a great deal of money, and I am a gracious host to my guests. Tell me how to conduct my life and how to spend (my wealth)."
The Prophet replied: "Pay regular charity out of your property, for truly it is a purifier. . .and be kind to your relatives, and acknowledge the rights of the poor, neighbors and (those in need who seek your help)."
