Donation & Pleasing The Believers
210- قالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ (ص) :
إذا خَرَجَتِ الصَّدَقَة مِن يَدِ صاحِبِها تَتَكَلَّـمُ بِخَمـسِ كَلِمـاتٍ: اَوَّلُها كُنتُ فانِياً فَاَثبَتَّنِـي وَ كُنتُ صَغيـراً فَكَبَّـرتَني وَ كُنـتُ عَدُوًّا فَأَحبَبتَني وَ كُنتَ تَحرُسُني وَالآنَ أَنَا أَحْرُسُكَ إِلى يَـومِ القِيامَة
The Holy Prophet [p.b.u.h.] said: "When charity (alms) is delivered out of the hand of its owner, it (the thing being given) says five things: 'At first I was perishing and you gave me life; I was insignificant and you made me great; I was an enemy and you turned me into a friend; you used to protect me then but now I will protect you up to the Day of Resurrection'."
