  1. Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Generosity is near to Allah, near to Paradise, near to the people, and far from the Hellfire. Miserliness is far from Allah, far from Paradise, far from the people, and near to the Hellfire. An ignorant generous person is more beloved to Allah the Exalted than a stingy scholar.

  3. السخيُّ قريبٌ مِنَ اللهِ، قريبٌ منَ الجنةِ، قريبٌ منَ الناسِ، بعيدٌ منَ النارِ . والبخيلُ بعيدٌ منَ الله، بعيدٌ منَ الجنةِ، بعيدٌ منَ الناسِ، قريبٌ منَ النارِ، والجاهلُ السخيُّ أحبُّ إلى اللهِ من عابدٍ بخيلٍ
