Giving Du`a - Freebie (Hadith No. 1233)


Bismillah.
Hadith no. 1232 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.
Volume 2, Book 24, Number 573:
Narrated Abu Ma'bad (the slave of Ibn Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu)):
Allah's Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said to Muadh (radiallaahu `anhu) when he sent him to Yemen, "You will go to the people of the Scripture. So, when you reach there, invite them to testify that none has the right to be worshiped but Allah, and that Muhammad (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) is His Apostle. And if they obey you in that, tell them that Allah has enjoined on them five prayers in each day and night. And if they obey you in that tell them that Allah has made it obligatory on them to pay the Zakat which will be taken from the rich among them and given to the poor among them. If they obey you in that, then avoid taking the best of their possessions, and be afraid of the curse of an oppressed person because there is no screen between his invocation and Allah."

Today's Hadith:

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 574i:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin Abu Aufa (radiallaahu `anhu):
Whenever a person came to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) with his alms, the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) would say, "O Allah! Send your Blessings upon so and so." My father went to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) with his alms and the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, "O Allah! Send your blessings upon the offspring of Abu Aufa."
Beautiful Sunnah of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam): giving du`a to people. It doesn't take much time, nor effort. Be generous with you words. See how the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) prays for the giver's offspring as well? Seekho kuch!
