Beggar, A Lowly Profession [Part 2]
The Messenger of Allah -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- promised Paradise for those who don’t beg from others
عَنْ ثَوْبَانَ قَالَ وَكَانَ ثَوْبَانُ مَوْلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ –صلى الله عليه وسلم- قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ –صلى الله عليه وسلم- (( مَنْ تَكَفَّلَ لِى أَنْ لاَ يَسْأَلَ النَّاسَ شَيْئًا وَأَتَكَفَّلَ لَهُ بِالْجَنَّةِ؟)). فَقَالَ ثَوْبَانُ: أَنَا. فَكَانَ لاَ يَسْأَلُ أَحَدًا شَيْئًا.
It is narrated from Tsauban, a former slave of the Messenger of Allah -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him-, he said that the Messenger of Allah -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- said, “Who want to guarantee to me that he wouldn’t beg to human being at all, then I will guarantee for him the Paradise?” (A narrator said), Tsauban replied, “I will.” Indeed, he (Tsauban) never begged anything from anyone.” [Narrated by Abu Dawud, no. 1643. Sheikh Al Albani classified it as valid hadith in “Shahih Al-Jami’” no. 6604.]
