Saheeh Al-Jami ‘As-Saghir Hadith No. 235

By almaas Sep 7, 2020

It is reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Go out, and cut down fruit from your palm trees for perhaps you may give alms (sadaqah) or do an act of kindness”

This hadith was narrated by Ahmad 3/321, Muslim 1483, Abu Dawood 2297, al-Nasai 6/209, Ibn Majah 2034, ad-Darimi 2288 and al-Hakim 2/207 from the words of Jabir.

Sheikh al-Albani called the hadith authentic. See Sahih al-jami ‘as-saghir 235, al-Silsilah al-sahiha 723.


Jabir said “My maternal aunt was divorced by three pronouncements and she went out to cut down fruit from her palm trees. A man met her and forbade her (to go out)[1]. So she went to the Prophet (ﷺ) and mentioned it to him. He said “Go out, and cut down fruit from your palm trees for perhaps you may give alms (sadaqah) or do an act of kindness.

[1] Hereinafter, it is a question of the abandonment of her home by a divorced woman before the expiration of the prescribed period (‘idda).
