Hadith Of The Week
عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ سَعْدٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَرِيمٌ يُحِبُّ الْكَرَمَ وَمَعَالِيَ الأَخْلاقِ وَيُبْغِضُ سَفْسَافَهَا
وفي رواية أخرى قال وَجَوَادٌ يُحِبُّ الْجُودَ
Sahl ibn Sa’d reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, Allah is generous and he loves generosity and exalted character, and he detests pettiness.”
In another narration, the Prophet said, “Allah is magnanimous and love magnanimity.”
