جاءتني مسكينة تحمل ابنتين لها فأطعمتها ثلاث تمرات فأعطت كل واحدة منهما تمرة ، ورفعت إلى فيها تمرة لتأكلها فاستطعمتها ابنتاها فشقت التمرة التي كانت تريد أن تأكلها بينهما فأعجبني شأنها فذكرت الذي صنعت لرسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال إن الله قد أوجب لها بها الجنة أو أعتقها بها من النار
Aisha (رضي الله عنهن) narrated:
One day a poor woman with two daughters came to me and I gave her three dates so she gave each of them a date. She then raised the date to her mouth to eat it, but her two daugherts wanted it so she broke the date and gave each of her daughers half. Thus I was truly amazed by her act of kindness. So I mentioned to him (صلى الله عليه وسلم) what she did, and he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said, “Because of that Allah made it incumbent that He enters her into jannah (paradise), and He saves her from the fire.” And in an other narration it states, “Whoever is tested with these daughters, and he/she is kind to them, then that will be a protection for him/her against the fire.”
Bukhari (1352) and Muslim (2629).
