Library Hadith


There are multiple hadiths on the importance of giving out part of our wealth as a gift to the holy progeny of our prophet (Peace be upon Him and his Holy Family). This is also called Sileh. Here we gathered a few of them.
Also, it is important to know that there is a chapter in Usul Kafi called Sileh to the Imam.

Abuabdillah, Imam Sadiq, pbh.png" alt="Peace be upon Him" /> , said:

A dirham( a unit of money)  paid to the Imam is better than thousands of dirhams paid for other good causes.

عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنْ بَعْضِ رِجَالِهِ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (علیه السلام) قَالَ:

دِرْهَمٌ يُوصَلُ بِهِ الْإِمَامُ أَفْضَلُ مِنْ أَلْفَيْ أَلْفِ دِرْهَمٍ فِيمَا سِوَاهُ مِنْ وُجُوهِ الْبِرِّ.

Imam Sadiq pbh.png" style="height:1.4em" alt="Peace be upon Him"> :
Do not abandon giving Sileh from what you own to the Family of Muhammad The wealthy as much as they can and the deprived as little as they can, should persist with this.
Whoever wants Allah to grant his most important request, he must spend part of the money which he needs most as Sileh for the holy progeny of prophet Mohammad and their Shia.

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْفَضْلِ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ عِمْرَانَ بْنِ مَعْقِلٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ ع قَالَ: سَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ‏:

لَا تَدَعُوا صِلَةَ آلِ‏ مُحَمَّدٍ مِنْ أَمْوَالِكُمْ مَنْ كَانَ غَنِيّاً فَعَلَى قَدْرِ غِنَاهُ وَ مَنْ كَانَ فَقِيراً فَعَلَى قَدْرِ فَقْرِهِ فَمَنْ أَرَادَ أَنْ يَقْضِيَ اللَّهُ لَهُ أَهَمَّ الْحَوَائِجِ إِلَى اللَّهِ فَلْيَصِلْ آلَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ شِيعَتَهُمْ بِأَحْوَجِ مَا يَكُونُ مِنْ مَالِه‏

Imam Sadiq narrated from his father (Peace be upon Them):
Whoever ends a complete year, without spending a large or a small sum of his wealth as Sileh to us (AhlulBayt), on the day of Judgement, Allah will not look at him with mercy. Unless Allah forgives him.

عن ابی عبدلله ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبِي علیه السلام يَقُولُ:

مَنْ مَضَتْ لَهُ سَنَةٌ لَمْ يَصِلْنَا مِنْ مَالِهِ قَلَّ أَوْ كَثُرَ لَمْ يَنْظُرِ اللَّهُ إِلَيْهِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ إِلَّا أَنْ يَعْفُوَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ
