There was a time, when sitting in a cafe, an old woman came to me. She looked weak and hadn't a lunch. So I gave her some thousands, hope her got a lunch.
In the middle of the night on my way to home, it was raining. Then I looked for a shelter and finally found it. On the downpour, two wet boys came to me to ask for money to get some dinner..Oh My God..How poor. Then I gave them some. Some moment, I guessed him 31 years old, a guy came and called the boys. He asked the boys,"What do you get today boys?."
Then I realized the guy used the poor boys to earn money all day long for his own.
At the moment, I promised on my self to not give anything to poor anymore. For four months, I refused to give money to the poor, even while walking with my friends and they come, I told my friend to not give them anything and telling him who behind the poor.
Till one moment, when I prayed Isya. The Imam said:
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.Forgive me God...
- Have you considered him who calls the judgment a lie?
- That is the one who treats the orphan with harshness.
- And does not urge (others) to feed the poor.
- So woe to the praying ones,
- Who are unmindful of their prayers
- Who do (good) to be seen,
- And withhold the necessaries of life.
just like a slap to what I've done...
Finally, I realized that to refuse giving some to the poor was wrong. But remember the guy using the poor boys, so I will give them food to eat not money...Thank's God to remind me
