يد المعطي العليا وابدأ بمن تعول أمك وأباك وأختك وأخاك ثم أدناك أدناك



Imams Nasai and Ibn Hibban (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Tariq ibn ‘Abdillah Al Muharibi (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sunan Nasai; Al Mujtaba, Hadith: 2532, Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, 3341 and 6562, as part of a longer narration.)



Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The hand that gives is is the upper hand (i.e. it is more virtuous) and begin [giving charity] to those under your care; Your mother, your father, your sister, your brother, then the next closest and the next closest.”
