Sunnah 138: Donate clothes, food and drink

November 1, 2010

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “If any Muslim clothes a Muslim when he is naked, Allah will clothe him in green garments of Paradise; if any Muslim feeds a Muslim when he is hungry, Allah will feed him from the fruits of Paradise; and if any Muslim gives a Muslim drink when he is thirsty, Allah will give him some of the pure wine which is sealed to drink” [Abu Dawud]

Sometimes as Muslims, we forget the basics. We concentrate so much on certain aspects of the religion that we forget others. The Prophet (pbuh) reminds that we have a responsibility to others. Let us donate our good clothes, or better yet buy new clothes for others, and feed people from that which we eat and give them drink. The Prophet (pbuh) gave a new wool cloak he had to a companion who asked for it and when Aisha (ra) only had one date, she gave that away to a woman in need.
