Hadith of the Month

ععَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ السَّخِيُّ قَرِيبٌ مِنْ اللَّهِ قَرِيبٌ مِنْ الْجَنَّةِ قَرِيبٌ مِنْ النَّاسِ بَعِيدٌ مِنْ النَّارِ وَالْبَخِيلُ بَعِيدٌ مِنْ اللَّهِ بَعِيدٌ مِنْ الْجَنَّةِ بَعِيدٌ مِنْ النَّاسِ قَرِيبٌ مِنْ النَّارِ وَلَجَاهِلٌ سَخِيٌّ أَحَبُّ إِلَى اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ مِنْ عَالِمٍ بَخِيلٍ .

سنن الترمذي كتاب البر والصلة باب ما جاء في السخاء 1961



Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, Generosity is near to Allah, near to Paradise, near to the people, and far from the Hellfire. Miserliness is far from Allah, far from Paradise, far from the people, and near to the Hellfire. An ignorant generous person is more beloved to Allah the Exalted than a stingy scholar.

Our religion, Islam emphasizes and gives great attention to protecting our surroundings for the well being of the human mankind, and all the other living things such as plants, animals, etc. Muslim Center J.H.S would like to dedicate April as the month of Conservation. What is Conservation? It is the usage, improvement, and protection of human and natural resources. We are responsible to take care of our environment. Allah SWT says; "Devote thyself single-mindedly to the Faith, and thus follow the nature designed by Allah, the nature according to which He has fashioned mankind. There is no altering the creation of Allah." Quran 30:30. May Allah SWT give all of us the tawfeeq to respect and make our surroundings a better place. Ameen.
