DOING GOOD DEEDS, NO MATTER HOW SMALL

قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَا يَحْقِرَنَّ أَحَدُكُمْ شَيْئًا مِنْ الْمَعْرُوفِ وَإِنْ لَمْ يَجِدْ فَلْيَلْقَ أَخَاهُ بِوَجْهٍ طَلِيقٍ وَإِنْ اشْتَرَيْتَ لَحْمًا أَوْ طَبَخْتَ قِدْرًا فَأَكْثِرْ مَرَقَتَهُ وَاغْرِفْ لِجَارِكَ مِنْهُ

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Let one of you not consider any good to be insignificant. If he has nothing, then let him meet his brother with a smiling face. If you buy some meat or cook something in a pot, then increase its broth, and serve some of it to your neighbour.”

Reference: Jami` at-Tirmidhi 1833
In-book reference: Book 25, Hadith 49
English translation: Vol. 3, Book 23, Hadith 1833

Lessons:

  1. Carry out good deeds no matter how small they are.
  2. Even putting on a smile or a cheerful face counts as a good deed.
  3. Cook extra food to share with neighbours even if to share just the broth or gravy.
