«إذا آتاك الله مالا فلير عليك فإن الله يحب أن يرى أثره على عبده حسنا ولا يحب البؤس ولا التباؤس» .
(حسن) . تخ طب الضياء عن زهير بن أبي علقمة. غاية المرام 76, الصحيحة 1290, 1320)

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

“If Allah has bestowed upon you wealth, then let it be visible on you, for, indeed, Allah loves to see the traces (of His mercy) on His slave in good (form). And He does not like humiliation (of a person) and when a person pretends to be poor. ” 

This hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari in Tarikh al-Kabir 1416, at-Tabarani in Mu’jam al-Kabir 5308 and ad-Diya al-Maqdisi from the words of Zuhair ibn Abu ‘Alqama.

Sheikh al-Albani called the hadith good. See Sahih al-jami ‘as-sagyir 255, Gayatul-maram 75, as-Silsilya al-sahiha 1290, 1320.

Grade: حسن

_____________________________________________

“And He does not like humiliation (of a person)” – that is, when he walks in torn and worn clothes and shows it to people.

“And when a person pretends to be poor” – that is, he shows his need and dilapidation, complains to people, as this leads to contempt on the part of people and the gloating joy of his enemies. As for showing your powerlessness between yourself and your Lord, agreeing with his predestination without expressing annoyance, this is encouraged. See Faydul-Qadir 1/235.
