Giving that which you love in charity

Reference: az-Zuhd li-Ahmad – Page 397

A man came asking [for charity] at the door of ar-Rabee’ ibn Khuthaym. So he (ar-Rabee’) said [to his family]: Feed this man with sugar. So his family said: Rather, he only wants [whatever] scraps & morsels [we have]. So he (ar-Rabee’) said: Feed him with sugar for ar-Rabee’ loves sugar.

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
