The Sin of the Person Who Does Not Provide for Those Under His Care. Hadeeth: Explanation of Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin Al Abbad

Abū Dawūd reported the hadīth of Abdullāh ibn ‘Amr (Allāh be pleased with him). He said, “Allāh’s Messenger (sallallāhu alaihi wa salam) said”

“Sufficient sin for a man is that he neglects those he should provide for.”(1)

Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin (hafidahullāh):

“Meaning, a person sins due to the absence of spending and providing on the one spending upon is obligated.

Regardless of whether that was due to him not seeking sustenance for them (by working), or if he was wealthy but was stingy and tightfisted with them.

Or perhaps he spends and gives optional charity to those who aren’t close to him, neglecting those who it is obligatory for him to spend on, from those close to him, (wife, children etc), so by doing this he fulfils a recommended act but abandons an obligation.

Indeed he is sinful because he abandons that which Allāh (‘azza wa jal) obligated upon him, from spending upon those it is obligated to provide for.

This is similar to the previous hadīth(2), Spend it on yourself, then your child, then your wife, then your servant, then he (sallallāhu alaihi wa salam) said: You have better knowledge; meaning: after that, give charity to whomsoever you wish, or don’t, its entirely up to you.”


Slightly Paraphrased from Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin’s (hafidahullāh) explanation of this hadīth in his lessons on Sunan Abū Dawūd in the Prophets Masjid.

(1) Authenticated by Shaykh Al-Albāni Sahīh Sunan Abū Dawūd Hadīth Nos. 1692 Vol.1 Pg. 469
(2) Full wording of the Hadīth:

On the Authority of Abū Hurayrah, he said Allāh’s Messenger commanded with giving in charity. Then a man said, “Oh Allāh’s Messenger! I have a dīnār?”

So Allāh’s Messenger said “Spend it in on yourself”.

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “Spend it on your offspring.”

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “Spend it on your wife.”

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “Spend it on your servant.”

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “You have better knowledge.” (On how to spend it, or give in charity to.)

Blessed Little Savings – Sufyaan Ath-Thawree

Yahyah Ibn Taalib Al-Antaakiy informed us that Al-Musayyab Ibn Waadih narrated to us, saying: Yusuf Ibn Asbaat said to me: Sufyaan Ath-Thawri died whilst leaving behind two hundred Deenaar; so I said to him: Where did he get that two hundred deenaar, whilst he was the Zaahid of the scholars? He said: He used to put aside little, so it (i.e. that wealth) was blessed.

Important Announcement: Sincerity and Donating – Salafi School/Al-Markaz As Salafi

Asalaamu alaykum Warahmatullaahi wabarakaatuhu

Pray all the brothers and sisters are well. May Allaah (The Most High) grant (us and them) beneficial knowledge, pure provision and righteous action.

We wish to make something very clear… It has come to Al Markaz As Salafi’s attention that some individuals wish to donate for Allaah’s sake.  Then we encourage them to khayr (goodness) for indeed the reward is with Allah.

However we must bear in mind a very simple affair: Allaah is the One who will establish the project; whether that is through the hands of two people or two thousand people.  Let no person with ulterior motives think that this school is a pet project for them; nor should anyone be oblivious to the fact that we will not bend to anyone’s whims and desires, simply because they gave something (little or plenty). What is most important is that we correct our intentions when giving for the sake of Allah, lest we lose any reward when doing so.

Likewise, let it be absolutely clear that money does not give a status or say in how we pursue the project. We will be consulting responsible and experienced people within the community and outside of it.  The dawa has never been based on money nor are we in need of money for favours, or to heap praise on someone; brushing aside the sound manhaj positions to gather wealth.

By the Mercy of Allah, we have seen the fitnah and errors committed; all in the pursuit of money for a project. And so we will not fall [by Allah’s permission] to those same errors; neither compromising the sound Manhaj positions nor our stances towards those who deliberately seek to dilute the correct stances towards ahlul bidah.  Donating is free for all to do and the reward is with Allah. How many children we have seen give in the projects established amongst the salafis around the country, let alone those who are wealthy.  And it is Allah who records it and indeed, Allah is sufficient as a Helper and a Guardian.
