Bismillahi wal Hamdullillah Was Salaatu Was Salaamu ‘Alaa Rasoolillahi
Upon the Authority Of Abu Dharr – Radhiyallahu Anhu who said:
I asked the Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu alaihi wa Salam:
“What will save a servant (of Allah) from the Fire?”
“Imaan (Faith) in Allah”
I said: “Oh Prophet of Allah” With Imaan there is action?
He said: “That one gives (even if it is little) from that which Allah has bestowed upon you and that you give (even if it is little) from that which Allah has provided you”
I said: “Oh Prophet of Allah! what if he is poor and finds nothing to give?
He said: “He enjoins the good and forbids the evil”
I said: “What if he is not able to enjoin the good and forbid the evil?”
He said: “Then he gives aid to the one who has no skill (or trade by way of which he receives earnings)”
I said: ” Oh Messenger of Allah! What if he (himself) has no trade?
He said: “He aids someone oppressed”
I said: “Oh prophet of Allah! What if he is weak and unable to aid one oppressed?”
He said: “If you do not not wish to leave any good with your brother then one should avoid harming the people”
I said: “Oh Messenger of Allah! If he does this will he be entered into Jannah?
He said: “There is no Believer who seeks to perform one of these affairs except that it will take him by the hand and enter him into Jannah”
(Collected by Imaam At Tabaraani in ‘Mu’jamul Kabeer 2/156, Al Baihaqi in Shu’abul Imaan 3/204/3328 – Zaghlool print and declared ‘Saheeh’ by shaikh Al Albaani in ‘Saheeh At Targheeb’ 1/525/ Hadeeth 876)
Look how Allah makes many paths of khair and good for his servants, and how the majority of those mentioned in this hadeeth revolve around aiding ones brother.
