I AM RUINED

While we were sitting in the company of the Prophet(saw), a man approached and said “O Messenger of Allah, I am ruined. The Prophet said what is the matter? He said I had sex with my wife while observing the Ramadan fast.

The Prophet asked him, can you free a slave? He said No. Then are you able to fast for two consecutive months? He said No. Then do you have the means to feed 60 poor people? He said No.

So the Prophet stopped and considered, and we waited like that until a large basket of dates was brought to the Prophet. He asked, where the questioner? The man spoke up, I am here.

The Prophet said take this dates and give it out in charity. The man asked, O Prophet, must I find someone poorer than myself to give it to?

By Allah, there is no household in town poorer than my own. The Prophet laughed until we could see his teeth, he said, go and feed your family with it. Salallahu Alayhi Wasalam.
