When You Do Not Help Someone in Need!
This is from The Holy Quran!
Surah Al Qalam 68.1 to 68.33
See the Video Link here –
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
[68.1] Noon. I swear by the pen and what the angels write,
[68.2] By the grace of your Lord you are not mad.
[68.3] And most surely you shall have a reward never to be cut off.
[68.4] And most surely you conform (yourself) to sublime morality.
[68.5] So you shall see, and they (too) shall see,
[68.6] Which of you is afflicted with madness.
[68.7] Surely your Lord best knows him who errs from His way, and He best knows the followers of the right course.
[68.8] So do not yield to the rejecters.
[68.9] They wish that you should be pliant so they (too) would be pliant.
[68.10] And yield not to any mean swearer
[68.11] Defamer, going about with slander
[68.12] Forbidder of good, outstepping the limits, sinful,
[68.13] Ignoble, besides all that, base-born;
[68.14] Because he possesses wealth and sons.
[68.15] When Our communications are recited to him, he says: Stories of those of yore.
[68.16] We will brand him on the nose.
[68.17] Surely We will try them as We tried the owners of the garden, when they swore that they would certainly cut off the produce in the morning,
[68.18] And were not willing to set aside a portion (for the poor).
[68.19] Then there encompassed it a visitation from your Lord while they were sleeping.
[68.20] So it became as black, barren land.
[68.21] And they called out to each other in the morning,
[68.22] Saying: Go early to your tilth if you would cut (the produce).
[68.23] So they went, while they consulted together secretly,
[68.24] Saying: No poor man shall enter it today upon you.
[68.25] And in the morning they went, having the power to prevent.
[68.26] But when they saw it, they said: Most surely we have gone astray
[68.27] Nay! we are made to suffer privation.
[68.28] The best of them said: Did I not say to you, Why do you not glorify (Allah)
Be Merciful for Allah SWT to be Merciful to You!
“Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.” [Muslim]
“He who does not show mercy shall see no mercy (from his Lord).” “Allah is not merciful to him who is not merciful to men.”
Debt: Relieving the person in debt
Abu Qatadah related that the Prophet said: If anyone would like Allah to save him from the hardships of the Day of Resurrection, he should give more time to his debtor who is short of money, or remit his debt altogether. (Muslim)
Relatives who are needy
Abu Huraira narrated that the Prophet said: The best charity is that which is practiced by a wealthy person. And start giving first to your dependents. (Bukhari)
Salman ibn Amer reported that the Prophet said: To give something to a poor man brings one reward, while giving the same to a needy relation brings two: one for charity and the other for respecting the family ties. (Ahmad, Ibn Majah, Nasai, Tirmidhi)
Jabir reported that the Prophet said: Avoid doing injustice to others, for on the Day of Judgment, it will turn into manifold darkness, and safeguard yourself against miserliness, for it ruined those who were before you. It incited them to murder and treating the unlawful as lawful. (Muslim)
One hadith in particular that underscores this message comes from a collection called An-Nawawi:
Whosoever removes a worldly grief from a believer, Allah will remove from him one of the griefs of the Day of Judgment. Whosoever alleviates [the lot of] a needy person, Allah will alleviate [his lot] in this world and the next. Whosoever shields a Muslim, Allah will shield him in this world and the next. Allah will aid a slave [of His] so long as the slave aids his brother.
The Holy Quran 2:278 – Baqarah
O you who have believed, fear Allah and give up what remains [due to you] of interest, if you should be believers.
The Holy Quran – Baqarah – 2:279
And if you do not, then be informed of a war [against you] from Allah and His Messenger. But if you repent, you may have your principal – [thus] you do no wrong, nor are you wronged.
The Holy Quran – Baqarah – 2:280
And if someone is in hardship, then [let there be] postponement until [a time of] ease. But if you give [from your right as] charity, then it is better for you, if you only knew.
And fear a Day when you will be returned to Allah. Then every soul will be compensated for what it earned, and they will not be treated unjustly.
