Taking provisions from this world will benefit in the Hereafter

Question

Kindly inform me if this is a Hadith?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever takes supplies in this world will benefit in the hereafter.”

 

Answer

This is recorded as a Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in Al Mu’jamul Kabir and Kitabuz Zuhd of Imam Bayhaqi, on the authority of Sayyiduna Jarir ibn ‘Abdillah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

Sayyiduna Jarir ibn ‘Abdillah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whomsoever takes provisions from this world [by carrying out good deeds], it will benefit him in the Hereafter.”

(Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 2271, Az Zuhdul Kabir of Imam Bayhaqi, Hadith: 467/712)

 

‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared the narrators reliable (rijaluhu rijalus sahih). ‘Allamah Munawi (rahimahullah) has also declared the chain reliable (isnaduhu sahih).

(Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 10 pg. 311 and At Taysir, vol. 2 pg. 448)

 

Imam Abu Hatim (rahimahullah) was of the view that this was the statement of Qays ibn Abi Hazim (rahimahullah), one of the narrators and not a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

(Kitabul ‘Ilal, vol. 5 pg. 177, Hadith: 1899 and Al Mudawi, Hadith: 3526)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
