The generosity of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and the barakah of ten dirhams

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) once purchased an upper garment for four dirhams from a fabric merchant. He left the shop wearing the garment, when an Ansari saw him and requested Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) to give him the garment. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) removed it, gave it to him and went back to the shop to purchase a new garment for four dirhams. At this point he had two dirhams remaining.

On the way back, he saw a slave girl weeping. Her owners had given her two dirhams to purchase flour, but she misplaced the dirhams. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) gave her the two remaining coins. She turned to proceed on her way, but she was still crying as she feared her owner will beat her. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) accompanied her and walked with her to her master.

When they reached the owner’s home, Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) made salam seeking permission to enter, thrice, as they did not respond after the first salam. They did so as they recognised the voice of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and wanted the barakah of the du’a/salam of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) informed them as to why he accompanied her. They freed her immediately. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) gave them glad tidings of good and Jannah and then said, “Allah Ta’ala has indeed placed barakah in the ten dirhams. Allah clothed his Nabi, clothed an Ansari and freed a slave. I praise Allah who has granted us this sustenance through His power.”
(Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 13607)

💡One never knows how far reaching the sadaqah could be.
Our duty is to spend with ikhlas & Allah Ta’ala does the rest.

Du’a for expansion in sustenance in old age

‘Aaisha (radiyallahu’anha) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) used to make the following dua:

اَللَّھُمَ اجْعَلْ اَوْسَعَ رِزْقِکَ عَلَیَّ عِنْدَ کِبَرِ سِنِّی وَ انْقِطَاعِ عُمُرِی

Allahumaj’al awsa’a rizqika ‘alaya ‘inda kibari sini wanqita’i ‘umuri

Translation:
O Allah let your most abundant provision for me be during my old age; when it is the end of my life.
(Mustadrak Hakim, vol.1 pg.542)

N.B. This is a du’a for protection from poverty in old age, which -obviously- should be recited before old age.
