Hadith Sherief: Love the Poor

Love the Poor

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:

"O God, grant me life as a poor man, cause me to die as a poor man and resurrect me in the company of the poor."

His wife asked him why he said that, and he replied:

"Because (the poor) will enter Paradise (before) the rich. Do not turn away a poor man. . .even if all you can give is half a date. If you love the poor and bring them near you. . .God will bring you near Him on the Day of Resurrection."

Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1376
