The Encouragement to have Guests and the Prohibition of Overburdening Oneself in that …

by The Albaani Blog


Translated by Ahmed Abu Turaab

لَا خَيْرَ فِيْمَنْ لَا يُضِيْفُ

From Uqbah in Aamir in marfoo form, “There is no good in a person who does not host [guests].”

Silsilah | 2434 | Saheeh

لَا يَتَكَلَّفَنَّ أَحَدٌ لِضَيْفِهِ مَا لَا يَقْدِرُ عَلَيْهِ

From Salmaan, may Allaah be pleased with him, that the Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said, “Let no-one overburden [himself] for his guest over and above what he is capable of doing.”

Silsilah | 2440 | Qawiyy
