Sahih Bukhari Hadith No. 1427

Chapter 25 THE BOOK OF ZAKAT
کتاب صحیح بخاری شریف
باب کتاب زکوۃ کے مسائل کا بیان

Narrated Hakim bin Hizam: The Prophet said, The upper hand is better than the lower hand (i.e. he who gives in charity is better than him who takes it). One should start giving first to his dependents. And the best object of charity is that which is given by a wealthy person (from the money which is left after his expenses). And whoever abstains from asking others for some financial help, Allah will give him and save him from asking others, Allah will make him self-sufficient.

حَدَّثَنَا مُوسَى بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ ، حَدَّثَنَا وُهَيْبٌ ، حَدَّثَنَا هِشَامٌ ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ ، عَنْ حَكِيمِ بْنِ حِزَامٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ , قَالَ : الْيَدُ الْعُلْيَا خَيْرٌ مِنَ الْيَدِ السُّفْلَى ، وَابْدَأْ بِمَنْ تَعُولُ ، وَخَيْرُ الصَّدَقَةِ عَنْ ظَهْرِ غِنًى ، وَمَنْ يَسْتَعْفِفْ يُعِفَّهُ اللَّهُ ، وَمَنْ يَسْتَغْنِ يُغْنِهِ اللَّهُ .

ہم سے موسیٰ بن اسماعیل نے بیان کیا ‘ کہا کہ ہم سے وہیب نے بیان کیا ‘ کہا کہ ہم سے ہشام بن عروہ نے اپنے باپ سے بیان کیا ‘ ان سے حکیم بن حزام رضی اللہ عنہ نے کہ   نبی کریم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا اوپر والا ہاتھ نیچے والے ہاتھ سے بہتر ہے اور پہلے انہیں دو جو تمہارے بال بچے اور عزیز ہیں اور بہترین صدقہ وہ ہے جسے دے کر آدمی مالدار رہے اور جو کوئی سوال سے بچنا چاہے گا اسے اللہ تعالیٰ بھی محفوظ رکھتا ہے اور جو دوسروں ( کے مال ) سے بےنیاز رہتا ہے ‘ اسے اللہ تعالیٰ بےنیاز ہی بنا دیتا ہے۔
