Summary of the Bayan
Dear Islamic brothers! In today’s Bayan, we have had the privilege of listening to the great generosity of Sayyiduna Talhah Bin ‘Ubaydullah رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ. In addition to enormous wealth, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ also granted him the blessings of generosity, absolute trust in Him for the fulfilment of needs, brotherhood and kind relationship with relatives. He رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ was so generous that he would distribute hundreds of thousands of dirhams among the poor and give charity in the way of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and never showed any signs of displeasure. He رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ never sent any beggar back without giving anything. He رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ would become restless if he possessed wealth and would feel relaxed after he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ had distributed it among the needy or had spent it in the way of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ.
The Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم bestowed him with the titles ‘طَلۡحَةُ الۡفَيَّاض’ [Talhah-tul-Fayyad], ‘طَلۡحَةُ الۡجُوۡد’ [Talhah-tul-Jood] and ‘طَلۡحَةُ الۡخَيۡر’ [Talhah-tul-Khayr]. Therefore, Sayyiduna Talhah Bin ‘Ubaydullah رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ himself has stated, due to this splendid generosity, the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم got pleased and bestowed upon him the titles of ‘طَلۡحَةُ الۡخَيۡر’ [Talhah-tul-Khayr] in the Battle of Uhud, طَلۡحَةُ الۡفَيَّاض’ [Talhah-tul-Fayyad] in the Battle of ‘Ushayrah and ‘طَلۡحَةُ الۡجُوۡد’ [Talhah-tul-Jood] in the Battle of Hunayn. Furthermore, the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم also blessed him with the good news of Jannah more than one time.
We too should be generous because miserliness is a destructive curse. Islam did not abolish anything more than miserliness. That’s why the pious predecessors رَحِمَهُمُ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَالٰی were far away from the curse of miserliness, they always remained tolerant, trusted in Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ for the fulfilment of their
