Hadith on Generosity: The Prophet donates all of his money before sundown

Abdullah al-Hawzani reported: I met Bilal, the caller of prayer for the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, at Aleppo and I said, “O Bilal, tell us about the spending of the Prophet.” Bilal said, “He would not have anything left. I was the one to manage it for him since Allah sent him until the day he died. If a Muslim came to him and he saw him naked, he would order me to depart, borrow money, and purchase a cloak for him, then I would clothe him and feed him.”

Al-Ghazali said, “The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, was the most generous of people. He would not pass the night if he had a gold or silver coin with him. If he had any surplus and he could find no one to give it to and nighttime suddenly arrived, he would not retire to his house until he donated it to whoever needed it.”

عَنْ عَبْد اللَّهِ الْهَوْزَنِي قَالَ لَقِيتُ بِلَالًا مُؤَذِّنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ بِحَلَبَ فَقُلْتُ يَا بِلَالُ حَدِّثْنِي كَيْفَ كَانَتْ نَفَقَةُ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ مَا كَانَ لَهُ شَيْءٌ كُنْتُ أَنَا الَّذِي أَلِي ذَلِكَ مِنْهُ مُنْذُ بَعَثَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَى أَنْ تُوُفِّيَ وَكَانَ إِذَا أَتَاهُ الْإِنْسَانُ مُسْلِمًا فَرَآهُ عَارِيًا يَأْمُرُنِي فَأَنْطَلِقُ فَأَسْتَقْرِضُ فَأَشْتَرِي لَهُ الْبُرْدَةَ فَأَكْسُوهُ وَأُطْعِمُهُ
