Hadith on Charity: Good deeds protect us from an evil fate in the Hereafter

December 17, 2016

Umm Salamah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Good works protect from evil fates. Charity in secret extinguishes the wrath of the Lord, maintaining family ties increases life span, and every good deed is charity. The people of good in the world are the people of good in the Hereafter, and the people of evil in the world are the people of evil in the Hereafter. And the first to enter Paradise are the people of good.
