Rights of the Poor


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 money)." The Prophet replied: "Pay (regular charity) out of your property, for truly it is a purifier. . .be kind to your relatives, and acknowledge the rights of the poor, of (your) neighbors and of (those who ask for assistance)." - Fiqh-us-Sunnah, Volume 3, Number 3
