Not enough for my needs

Reference: Mawaaqif madhee.ah fee hayaat al-Imaam ‘Abdul-‘Azeez Ibn Baaz – Page 196

Concerning the Imaam, the Shaykh – ‘Abdul-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (rahima-hullaah), Raashid ar-Raajih narrates:

Once, while I was in the presence of the Shaykh, a man came asking the Shaykh for [financial] assistance, so the Shaykh gave him a generous amount. However, the man was not satisfied, and said to the Shaykh “”This is not enough for my needs””. So the Shaykh, most humbly and respectfully, said to him:

“Take it, and there will be barakah in it, with the permission of Allaah”.

And it appeared the man understood what the Shaykh had intended, so he took the money, thanking the Shaykh as he left.

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.
