عَنْ أَبِي ذَرٍّ قَالَ 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
Narrated Abu Dharr:
That 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.”
Narrated in Jami` at-Tirmidhi, hadith 1833
Grade: Sahih (authentic)
Translation adapted from sunnah.com
- Strive to do good every day of our lives, no matter how small the act.
- Greet others with a smile and a happy face; smiling is charity.
- Be good to our neighbours and share with them our cooking, even if just the broth.
Let’s be neighbors that always do good to each other, however insignificant the deed may seem. The value of a deed in the sight of Allah is determined by sincerity and effort.
