ahadith about work

Abu Hurairah (rAa) reported: The Prophet (as) said, “No food is better to man than that which he earns through his work. David (as), the Prophet of Allah, ate only out of his earnings from his manual work.”
[Al-Bukhari]
Abu Musa (rAa) reported: The Prophet (as) said, “The honest Muslim trustee who carries out the duties assigned to him (in another narration he said, “Who gives”), and he gives in full, with his heart overflowing with cheerfulness, to whom he is ordered, is one of the two givers of charity”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
Abu Hurairah (rAa) reported: Messenger of Allah (as) said, “It is better for anyone of you to carry a bundle of wood on his back and sell it than to beg of someone, whether he gives him or refuses.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

  1. I can appreciate these hadiths. I’m all for compassion and giving to others but it’s frustrating to see people who aren’t wildly infirm, have money for cigarettes and/or alcohol, yet still DEMAND, not ask, for charity. I empathize for those who are out of work–I was one for nearly 2 years, but I always found a way, alhamdulillah.
