CHAPTER: PERMISSIBILITY TO ACCEPT WHAT IS GIVEN WITHOUT BEGGING, OR WITHOUT BEING AVARICIOUS  

No. 2272

Salim b. Abdullah b. 'Umar reported on the authority of his father ('Abdullah b. 'Umar) that he had heard 'Umar b. Khattab (Allaah be pleased with him) saying: The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) gave me a gift, but I said: Give it to one who needs it more than I. He gave me wealth for the second time but I said: Give it to one who needs it more than I. Upon this the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Take out of this wealth which comes to you without your being avaricious and without begging, but in other circumstance's do not let your heart hanker after it.

No. 2273

Salim b. 'Abdullah reported on the authority of his father that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) gave to 'Umar b. Khattab some gift. Umar said to him: Messenger of Allaah, give it to one who needs it more than I. Upon this the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Take it; either keep it with you or give it as a charity, and whatever comes to you in the form of this type of wealth, without your being avaricious or begging for it, accept it, but in other circumstances do not let your heart hanker after it. And it was on account of this that Ibn 'Umar never begged anything from anyone, nor refused anything given to him.

Ibn al-Sa'di Maliki reported: 'Umar b. Khattab (Allaah be pleased with him) appointed me as a collector of Sadaqa. When I had finished that (the task assigned to me) and I handed over that to him (to 'Umar), he commanded me to (accept) some remuneration (for the work). I said: I performed this duty for Allaah and my reward is with Allaah. He said: Take whatever has been given to you, for I also performed this duty during the time of the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam). He assigned me the task of a collector and I said as you say, and the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said to me: When you are given anything without your begging for it, (then accept it), eat it and give it in charity.
