|Subject: Taking back your Charity/Gifts Thu Mar 03, 2011 11:11 am|| |
This is something we really need to contemplate upon:
Narrated by 'Umar bin Al-Khattab (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I gave a horse in Allah's Cause. The person to whom it was given, did not look after it. I intended to buy it from him, thinking that he would sell it cheap. When I asked the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) he said, "Don't buy it, even if he gives it to you for one Dirham, as the person who takes back what he has given in charity, is like a dog that swallows back its vomit."
