Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam ‘ala Rasulillah
Narrated Abu Huraira (Radi-Allahu ‘anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, The example of a
miser and a generous person is like that of two persons wearing iron
cloaks from the breast up to the neck. When the generous person spends,
the iron cloak enlarges and spread over his skin so much so that it
covers his fingertips and obliterates his tracks. As for the miser, as
soon as he thinks of spending every ring of the iron cloak sticks to its
place (against his body) and he tries to expand it, but it does not
expand. The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) pointed with his hand
towards his throat.
