Tarbiyah [Cultivation] – Reminder From a Hadeeth [About a Poor Pious Person] With a Short Comment By Imaam Bin Baaz

Narrated Sahl: A man passed by Allaah’s Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and Allaah’s Messenger asked (his companions, ‘What do you say about this (man)?  They replied, ‘If he asks for a lady’s hand, he ought to be given her in marriage; and if he intercedes (for someone), his intercession will be accepted; and if he speaks, he will be listened.’  Allaah’s Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) kept silent, and then another man from the poor Muslims passed by, and Allaah’s Messenger asked (them), ‘What do you say about this man?’  They replied, ‘If he asks for a lady’s hand in marriage, no one will accept him, and if he intercedes (for someone), his intercession will not be accepted; and if he speaks, he will not be listened to.’  Allaah’s Messenger said, ‘This poor man is better than so many of the first as to fill the earth’

Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah) said:

This clarifies that what matters is the religion (of a person) and not wealth and status……and all these (men) were among the Sahaabah.
