Hadith

The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reported by Abu Umamah
Children of Adam! Distribute your surplus wealth in the name of Allah; it will earn you more merit. Do not hold it back. You must not be remembered for miserliness, so begin with those closest to you.

-The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reported by Abu Umamah

A most worthy hadith :) In that spirit of generosity, please visit the Darvish blog find out about the Book Drive for Iraqi Kurdistan.
A good cause.

I like the hadith too. Begin with the closest with you. So true. No point going to charities and you don't even help your own family in times when they need you.
