The Spending Habit of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)

Abdullah al-Hawzani narrates:

I met Bilaal (radhiyallahu anhu), the Mu’azzin of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) at Aleppo, and I asked:

O Bilaal, tell me, how was the spending (habit) of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)?”

He replied:

He (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had nothing, and I was the one entrusted with that (i.e. expenditure), by him, from the time Allah sent him (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) till he passed away. When a Muslim man would come to him (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), and he would see that he is unclothed, he (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) would order me (to see to it ). I would then go and seek a loan (on behalf of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam), buy an outer garment and clothe and feed him.”

(Saheeh Hadith recorded by Abu Dawud)

حَدَّثَنِي عَبْدُ اللَّهِ الْهَوْزَنِيُّ، قَالَ لَقِيتُ بِلاَلاً مُؤَذِّنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم بِحَلَبَ فَقُلْتُ يَا بِلاَلُ حَدِّثْنِي كَيْفَ كَانَتْ نَفَقَةُ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ مَا كَانَ لَهُ شَىْءٌ كُنْتُ أَنَا الَّذِي أَلِي ذَلِكَ مِنْهُ مُنْذُ بَعَثَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَى أَنْ تُوُفِّيَ وَكَانَ إِذَا أَتَاهُ الإِنْسَانُ مُسْلِمًا فَرَآهُ عَارِيًا يَأْمُرُنِي فَأَنْطَلِقُ فَأَسْتَقْرِضُ فَأَشْتَرِي لَهُ الْبُرْدَةَ فَأَكْسُوهُ وَأُطْعِمُهُ
