Restaurant Tips

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

My question is regarding tips at restaurants. Does Islam have anything to say on the topic of tips? If we don’t tip, is it sinful? Some people tip $20-25 for their tip, is this permissible even though they are going through difficult times financially?

JazakAllah khairan, I am eagerly awaiting your reply.
