Prohibition of Miserliness
Allah, the Exalted, says:
"But he who is greedy miser and thinks himself self-sufficient. And belies Al-Husna. We will make smooth for him the path for evil. And what will his wealth avail him when he goes down (in destruction)?'' (92:8-11)
"And whosoever is saved from his own covetousness, then they are the successful ones.''
Jabir bin `Abdullah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,"Beware of oppression, for oppression will be darkness on the Day of Resurrection; and beware of stinginess because it destroyed those who were before you. It incited them to shed their blood and deem unlawful as lawful.''
