ACKNOWLEDGE THE RIGHTS OF THE POOR

A man once said to the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him): "I have
plenty of property, a large family, a great deal of money, and I am a
gracious host to my guests. Tell me how to conduct my life and how to
spend (my wealth)." The Prophet replied: "Pay regular charity out of
your property, for truly it is a purifier. . .and be kind to your
relatives, and acknowledge the rights of the poor, neighbors and
(those in need who seek your help)."

Fiqh-us-Sunnah, Volume 3, Number 3
