Styles of Charity: ‘Â`ishah and Asmâ`

‘Abdullâh b. Al-Zubayr said, “I have never seen two women more generous than ‘Â`ishah and Asmâ`. They had different ways of being generous. As for ‘Â`ishah, she used to gather things, until she had a collection, then she would distribute it. As for Asmâ`, she would never keep anything until the next day.”

[Al-Bukhârî, Al-Adab Al-Mufrad. Shaykh Al-Albânî grades its chain of transmission sahîh in Sahîh Al-Adab Al-Mufrad Vol.1 p123]

amazing Hadith/saying of the Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam, thank you sister in Islam for sharing the Sunnah of the beloved Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam.

May Allah bless our Ramadan and May Allah answer our good du'as for our selves, the Muslim Ummah, and our du'as/prayers against the accursed enemies of God (Allah). Ameen. Ameen. Ameen :)

Wa aleikom al salam. This is a report for what one of the Sahabah witnessed by seeing the generosity of A'isha and Asmaa' (radiAllahu 'anhum). This is not a saying of the Prophet (salAllahu 'alayhi wa salam), but of course he was the one encouraging this type of charity =) salam sis
