Hadith Explanation

Itikaf of Ten Years

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The reward and blessing for the act of providing for the need of a brother Muslim exceeds the reward and blessing for performing an Itikaf for a period of ten years.” [Tabaraani]

One can only imagine how much Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) will appreciate our helping those who have fallen into need only for the sake of upholding the dignity of Islam and Muslims.

The greater the help, the more difficult it is to provide, the greater will be the reward. It is one thing to provide for an ordinary poor Muslim but something altogether different if the needy person is out of favour with the powerful and influential.
