Charity Only Gives Increase

It was narrated from Abu Huraira (ra) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Wealth does not decrease because of charity, and Allaah increases His slave in honour when he forgives others. And no one humbles himself before Allaah but Allaah will raise him (in status).”

Narrated by Muslim, 2588.

A scholar of the past included it in a chapter entitled: “The recommendation of forgiveness and humility.”

He said:

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “And no one humbles himself before Allaah but Allaah will raise him (in status).”

This is understood in two ways:

  • The first is that He will raise him (in status) in this world, and give him status in people’s hearts because of his humility, and give him a high status in people’s eyes.
  • The second is meant his reward in the Hereafter, where his status will be raised because of his humility in this world.
