CHAPTER: EXHORTATION TO SPEND (FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAAH) AND DISAPPROVAL OF CALCULATING (THE ARTICLES OF CHARITY)
Asma', daughter of Abu Bakr (Allaah be pleated with him), reported: The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said to me: Spend, and do not calculate, or otherwise Allaah would also calculate in your case.
Asma' reported Allaah's Messenger (way sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying (to her): Spend and do not calculate, (for) Allaah would calculate in your case; and do not hoard, otherwise Allaah would be withholding from you.
This hadith has been narrated on the authority of Asma' through another chain of transmitters.
Asma', daughter of Abu Bakr, reported that abe came to the Prophet of Allaah (may peace he upon him) and said: Prophet of Allaah, I have nothing with me, but only, that which is given to me by Zubair (for household expenses). Is there any sin for me if I spend out of that which is given to me (by Zabair)? Upon this he (the Prophet) said: Spend according to your means; and do not hoard, for Allaah will withhold from you.
