Hadith Explanation

Leniency in Collection

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Whoever extends the time-limit for a debtor who is in difficulty, or waives the debt altogether, Allah will shade him with His shade.” [Musnad Ahmad]

The shade of Allah’s Throne is not limited to the seven categories of people mentioned in the famous hadith of Saheeh Bukhaari. Ahadith indicate that some other types of people will also enjoy the shade of Allah’s Throne.

This hadith tells us that Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) will shade those who show leniency in collecting debts, and who either extend the time-limit (of repayment) for a debtor, or waive the debt altogether.

So don’t get bothered if someone is tardy in repaying you. Each day that they are late, Sadaqah is written for you. Especially if the debtor is in financial difficulty, consider waiving the debt altogether!
