Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

What is the authenticity of this narration?

“The wealth of a servant is not decreased by giving charity, Allah Ta’ala will increase the honor of one who endures oppression, and a person does not open a door of begging except that Allah will open for him a door of poverty”

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this as part of a longer narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Kabshah Al Anmari (radiyallahu ‘anhu) and has declared the Hadith authentic (hasanun sahih).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2325)

 

Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded the first part of this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). (Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2588)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
