The great virtue of assisting widows and the poor

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Is this authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The person who assists and takes care of the widow and the poor is like the person who is striving in the path of Allah or like the one who is fasting all day and performing Salah all night”

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration. The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5353, 6006 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2982)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
