Hadith for Children
Mawlana Muhammad Jawayd Attari Madani
Our beloved and final Prophet صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said,
مَنْ يَكْفُلُ لِي اَنْ لَا يَسْأَلَ النَّاسَ شَيْئًا، وَاَتَكَفَّلُ لَهُ بِالْجَنَّةِ
“Whoever guarantees me they will not ask for anything from people, I guarantee them Paradise.”
It is not appropriate to needlessly make requests to everyone. Nobody thinks good of a child who does this. In fact, Allah Almighty does not like someone who always asks others for their needs.
Some children have a habit of always asking like this. For example, one child may see another eating something and ask for that thing. Or at school, they ask to use other children’s pens or pencil sharpener. They even ask for money from guests who visit their home!
This is not a good thing to do. It is a bad habit to ask others for food or anything else over and over. Kids who do this are always focusing on what other children have. This can even lead to them taking and eating things given by complete strangers. Whatever they take can also have dangerous substances mixed in, leading to the child suffering harm in some way.
* Do not constantly ask people for things.
* Do not eat anything a stranger gives to you.
* Be happy and thankful for what Allah has given you.
* If you need anything at all, politely ask your parents instead of anyone else.
May Allah Almighty allow us to avoid the bad habit of asking from people.
