Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action

January 11, 2013

On the authority of Abi Mas’ood ‘Uqbah bin ‘Amr al-Ansaaree al-Badaree -may Allah be pleased with him- he said: The Messenger of Allah -sallahu ‘alayhi wasallam- said:

“Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action”

[Muslim (1893)]

The hadeeth in this chapter indicates that the person who directs someone to a good whether it be pertaining to the good of the Worldly Life or Hereafter: he will have a similar reward like the one who performed it without their being any decrease from the reward of the doer of the action (the one who is actually doing the act), rather it is a (full) reward because of him being a good model and exemplar in doing beneficence – Ash-Sheikh ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abdur Rahman Al-Bassaam
