Hadith on Charity: The Prophet encourages support of the poor

Jabir ibn Abdullah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, decided to embark on an expedition, so he said, “O Muhajirun and Ansar, there are among you people who have no property or family. Let everyone of you take along with him two or three men.” There was none of us who had a spare animal so we took rides by turn. I took two or three men with me and I rode my camel by with them by turns.

عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَنَّهُ أَرَادَ أَنْ يَغْزُوَ فَقَالَ يَا مَعْشَرَ الْمُهَاجِرِينَ وَالْأَنْصَارِ إِنَّ مِنْ إِخْوَانِكُمْ قَوْمًا لَيْسَ لَهُمْ مَالٌ وَلَا عَشِيرَةٌ فَلْيَضُمَّ أَحَدُكُمْ إِلَيْهِ الرَّجُلَيْنِ أَوْ الثَّلَاثَةِ فَمَا لِأَحَدِنَا مِنْ ظَهْرٍ يَحْمِلُهُ إِلَّا عُقْبَةٌ كَعُقْبَةِ يَعْنِي أَحَدِهِمْ قَالَ فَضَمَمْتُ إِلَيَّ اثْنَيْنِ أَوْ ثَلَاثَةً قَالَ مَا لِي إِلَّا عُقْبَةٌ كَعُقْبَةِ أَحَدِهِمْ مِنْ جَمَلِي
