أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Allah Most High says,

{O ye who believe! Cancel not your charity by reminders of your generosity or by injury.} (Al-Baqarah: 264)

Al- Wahdi commented on this verse by saying, “It is the one who reminds the recipients of his charity.”

Al-Kalbi said, “It is the one who counts his charity as a favor upon Allah and injures the recipients of it.”

The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) declared,

“There is one people whom Allah will not speak to, look at, or exonerate on the Day of Judgment, and they will have a painful torment. they are the one who wears the hem of his garment low (out of pride), he who reminds recipients of his charity to them, and he who sells merchandise swearing that he paid more for it than he actually did.

He (pbuh) also said,

“Three men will never enter Paradise; those disobedient to their parents, the drunkards and the one who used to remind the recipients of his charity with his grace.” (Nasai)

Another narration to this Hadith states,

“Paradise is not the abode for the fraud, the niggard and the person who reminds the recipients of his charity.” (Tirmidhi)

Furthermore, The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said,

“Beware of reminding others by your grace for it would nullify the recompense and reward: The Messenger (pbuh) then recited. {O ye who believe! Cancel not your charity by reminders of your generosity or by injury.} (Al-Baqarah: 264)

Once Ibn Sireen heard a man reminding another man of his grace to him so he said, “It is better to keep silent for there is no good in beneficence when it is counted.

Some wise men used to say, “Whoever reminds others with his beneficence, will have no compensation for it. Moreover, who is admired by his deed will have no reward for it.”
