In this episode, Shaykh Faraz explains the twenty-eighth and twenty-ninth hadiths from the Chapter on Matters That Soften the Heart from the hadith compilation, Mishkat al-Masabih, compiled by Muḥammad ibn Abdullah Khatib al-Tabrizi (d. 741 AH). The twenty-eighth hadith relates to us that “the believer spends nothing of wealth except that they are rewarded for it except what they spend on this dust”. Shaykh Faraz gives some key principles on how to spend one’s wealth and avoid excess. The twenty-ninth hadith relates to us that “all spending is in the path of Allah, except for building, there is no good in it.” Shaykh Faraz explains that the spending here means that which takes from the spending on one’s family, and is above and beyond one’s needs.
