Begging despite not being needy


Please provide the Hadith warning against begging without being needy.


Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“He who begs merely to increase his wealth, is actually asking for hot coals, so [he should decide whether to] increase or decrease the coals”

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1041)


Kindly see here for more narrations prohibiting begging.


And Allah Ta’ala knows best
