Things that benefit you | Sunday, December 19, 2010
في حديث أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال : ( إذَا مَاتَ الإِنْسَانُ انْقَطَعَ عَمَلُهُ إلاَّ مِنْ ثَلاَثٍ : صَدَقَةٍ جَارِيَةٍ ، أَوْ عِلْمٍ يُنْتَفَعُ بِهِ ، أَوْ وَلَدٍ صَالِحٍ يَدْعُو لَهُ ) رواه مسلم
Translation; The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “When the son of Adam dies his actions come to an end except three things, a continuing charity or knowledge which gives benefit or a pious child who prays for him” (Sahih Muslim)
