Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam 'ala Rasulillah

As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu

Zakat - 12th Sha'aban 1433 (2nd July 2012)

Narrated Hakim bin Hizam (Radi-Allahu 'anhu):

The Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "The upper hand is better
than the lower hand (i.e. he who gives in charity is better than him who
takes it). One should start giving first to his dependents. And the best
object of charity is that which is given by a wealthy person (from the
money which is left after his expenses). And whoever abstains from asking
others for some financial help, Allah will give him and save him from
asking others, Allah will make him self-sufficient."

Bukhari Vol. 2 : No. 508
