HADITH OF THE DAY: GOD ACCEPTS ONLY HONESTLY-EARNED CHARITY

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "If anyone gives in charity (even a tiny amount) from honestly-earned money -- and God accepts only honestly-earned money -- God takes it in His right (hand) and enlarges its reward for that person (who has given it), as anyone of you brings up a young horse, so that it becomes as big as a mountain. "


Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 2, Hadith 491
