Hadith Explanation

Pick It Up Yourself

“The reins fell from the hands of Abu Bakr as-Siddiq (radi Allahu anhu) and he struck upon the foreleg of his camel and made it kneel down. The people said to him, ‘Why did you not tell us to give it back to you?’ He (radi Allahu anhu) said, ‘My beloved, the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, told me that I was not to ask people for anything.’” [Ahmad]

Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) likes that Muslim who tries to take care of his needs himself and is not a burden on others as much as he can possibly help it. Even if it is easy for someone to do something for you but you can do it yourself; do it yourself!

Try to do all your work yourself. If you pattern your lifestyle on the Sunnah it will facilitate you in not having to ask people for things and favours. It will also provide you with time to be of use to others.

Live with self-respect. Be dignified: Realize that Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) is the source of everything and if you need help ask Him to arrange it for you.
