Total 14 hadees found


Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “O Ali (a.s.)! The Almighty Allah has kept poverty among His creatures as a trust. One who keeps it hidden will be like one who stays awake at night for Allah and observes fast. One who reveals his poverty in front of a person who can fulfill his desire but does not do so, such a person has killed that poor man. This person is not killed by a sword or a lance but by a wound on his heart.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 235/236

Almighty Allah will order a caller on the Day of Judgment to call out for the poor ones. Some people will stand up and they will be ordered to go to Paradise. When they reach the door of Paradise, they will be asked, “Do you want to go to Paradise even before accounting of deeds?” They will reply, “Were we given something whose account we should give?” Almighty Allah will say, “My servants! You are right. I didn’t give you poverty to disgrace you but for this day. Go among the people and see. Whoever did good to you, hold his hand and make him enter Paradise along with you.
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 236

Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his predecessors that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “O poor ones! Be happy. Allah’s pleasure is granted to your hearts. Allah will pay the price of your poverty. If you had not been poor there was no reward for you.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 236

May Allah shower mercy on His virtuous and pious servant who did not beg inspite of difficulties even though he was troubled in this world and his desires were not fulfilled.
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 236

“Do not insult a poor believer because the Almighty Allah insults one who insults a poor believer. Allah will become his enemy till he does not stop doing so or repents for his deed. One who disgraces a believer because of his poverty the Almighty Allah will disgrace him on the Day of Judgment in front of His entire creation.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Iqbal al-A`amal, page 315

“One who begs in spite of having rations for next three days, will not have flesh on this face when he meets Allah on the Day of Judgment.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Iqbal al-A`amal, page 344

أَرْبَعَةٌ قَلِيلُها كَثِيرٌ: الْفَقْرُ؛ وَالْوَجَعُ؛ وَالْعَدَاوَةُ؛ وَالنَّارُ

Four things are great, though little in weight: pain, poverty, fire and enemy.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 650; Page No. 95

عَلَيْكَ بِاليَأْسِ مِمَّا في أيْدِي النَّاسِ، وَاِيَّاكَ وَالطَّمَعَ فَاِنَّهُ الفَقْرُ الحَاضِرُ

Give up hope for what people have and avoid avarice, for it is immediate poverty.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 679; Page No. 99

ما فَتَحَ رَجُلٌ عَلى نَفْسِه بَابَ مَسْئَلَةٍ إلاّ فَتَحَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ بَابَ فَقْرٍ

God will open the door of poverty to the one who opens the door of excessive requests to people.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 781; Page No. 111&112

لَيْسَ المِسْكِيْنُ الَّذِي يَطُوْفُ عَلَى النَّاسِ فَيَرِدَهُ اللُّقْمَةُ وَاللُّقْمَتَانِ، وَالتَّمْرَةُ وَالتَّمْرَتَانِ، وَلكِنَّ المِسْكِيْنَ الَّذِي لا يَجِدُ غِنَىً يُغْنِيْهِ وَلا يُعْطَى لَهُ فَيَتَصَدَّقَ عَلَيْهِ، وَلا يَقُومُ فَيَسْأَلُ

He is not poor, who begs among people to get one or two morsels of food or one or two dates, but the one who does not have anything to make him needless, who is not attended with alms, and who does not make a request to people at the same time.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 868; Page No. 123

ما أخْشَى عَلَيْكُمُ الفَقْرَ، وَلكِنِّي أخْشى عَلَيْكُمُ التَّكَاثُرَ.وَما أخْشى عَلَيْكُمُ الخَطَاءَ، وَلكِنِّي أخْشى عَلَيْكُمُ التَّعَمُّدَ.

I am not worried about your poverty but only about taking pride in your excessive wealth, nor am I worried about your wrongdoings but only about intentional ones.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 949; Page No. 134

لأَنَا مِنْ فِتْنَةِ السَّرَّاءِ أخْوَفُ عَلَيْكُمْ مِنْ فِتْنَةِ الضَّرَّاءِ، اِنَّكُمُ اُبْتُلِيْتُمْ بِفِتْنَةِ الضَّرَّآءِ فَصَبَرْتُمْ، وَإنَّ الدُّنْيَا حُلْوَةٌ خُضْرَةٌ

I am worried about you more for trials in poverty than for trials in affluence. Verily, you were afflicted with poverty but kept patient; verily the world is sweet and charming!
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 954; Page No. 135

لَوْ تَعْلَمُونَ مَا لَكُمْ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ لأحْبَبْتُمْ أنْ تَزْدَادُوْا فَاقَةً وَحَاجَةً

If you knew what you have with God, you would like to fall into more poverty and need.
