Narrated ‘Aisha (radhiAllaahu ‘anha):

Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) said, “When a woman gives in charity some of the foodstuff (which she has in her house) without spoiling it, she will receive the reward for what she has spent, and her husband will receive the reward because of his earning, and the storekeeper will also have a reward similar to it. The reward of one will not decrease the reward of the others.”

— [Sahih Bukhari Vol. 2, no. 506]


One of the Salaf, al Imām Fudayl bin Iyād (رضي الله عنه) said,

“I learned patience from a small boy. On my way to the Masjid one day, I came across a woman beating her son at home. As he was yelling and screaming, he managed to open the door and flee. So his mother locked the door on him. When I returned from the Masjid, I found the boy after having cried and wept sleeping at the door of his home longing for his mother. So his mother’s heart softened and she opened the door for him.” Upon witnessing that, Fudayl bin Iyād cried until his beard became wet with tears, and then he said “SubhānAllāh! If only the servant was to be patient at the door of Allāh, Allāh would surely open it!”

[Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah (6/22)]

To endure short-lived difficulties that are followed by long lasting ease, is better than hurrying for a short-lived ease that is followed by everlasting hardship.

— Hasan Al-Basri (rahimahullah) [Al-Hilyah, 2/134]
