A Servant’s Reminder

From Abu Hurairah (RA), the Prophet PBUH said:

مَا نَقَصَتْ صَدَقَةٌ مِنْ مَالٍ وَمَا زَادَ اللَّهُ عَبْدًا بعَفْوٍ إِلَّا عِزًّا وَمَا تَوَاضَعَ أَحَدٌ لِلَّهِ إِلَّا رَفَعَهُ اللَّهُ

“Charity does not decrease wealth. The servant who shows forgiveness, is awarded with dignity. And the one who shows humility, Allah grants him nobility.”

– Muslim
