Mufti Muhammad Shafi Saheb [ra]

Actions which Repel Poverty

 Maintaining family Ties
 Abū Hurairah says that Rasūlullāh said,

'Whoever desires to have an increase in his sustenance and in his age, should join family ties.'That is, he should fulfil the rights of his next of kin and assist them physically and financially according to his ability. (Sahh Bukhr)

 Washing the Hands

 Anas (RA) states that Rasūlullāh (SAW) said,

'Whoever wants his sustenance to be increased by Allāh, should regularly wash his hands before and after meals.' (Ibn Mjah)

 Salah

 Imām bdur-Razzāq has quoted in his Musnad that when an old man from the Quraish used to complain of poverty to Rasūlullāh (SAW) he would emphasize to his household to perform salāh. Then he would read the verse,

 'Command your family to perform salāh. Remain steadfast upon it yourselves. We do not ask you for sustenance. We will provide you with sustenance. The best culmination is for the pious.'

 

The son of bdullāh Ibn Salām, Hamzah (RA) narrates that whenever difficult conditions affected the family of Rasūlullāh (SAW) he would stress the performing of salāh to them and he would recite the verse, to them.  (Sunan of Sad bin Mansr)

 Thābit t narrates that whenever the family of Nabī e was afflicted by poverty, then he would call out to them, 'Perform salāh, perform salāh.' (Kitbuz Zuhd of Imm Ahmad bin Hambal)

 This was the habit of all the prophets (SAW) Whenever any calamity afflicted them, they would resort to salāh.

Piety

 Muādh Ibn Jabal t says that he heard Rasūlullāh e saying,

'O people, adopt piety as your business, you will receive sustenance without any business or capital. Then he recited the verse,  

'Whoever fears Allāh, Allāh will make an exit for him from every calamity and grant him sustenance from where he cannot imagine. Whoever reposes his trust in Allāh, Allāh will be sufficient for him.' (Tabrn)

 Abū Dhar t reports that once Rasūlullāh e recited the verse,

  'Whoever fears Allāh, Allāh will make an exit for him from every calamity and grant him sustenance from where he did not even perceive. Whoever places his trust in Allāh, Allāh is sufficient for him.'

 And then he said, O Abū Dhar, if all the people had to practice on this verse, it would suffice for them.' Thaubān (RA) narrates that Nabī e said, 'Sometimes a person is deprived of sustenance due to a sin he committed.' (Ibn Mjah)

mrān Ibn Husain t narrates that Rasūlullāh (SAW) said, 'Whoever severs his focus from all sides and places his trust on Allāh  He will take the responsibility for all his tasks and whoever focuses his attention towards the world, Allāh I will hand him over to the world.' (Tafsr Ibn Htim)
