Beware of Stinginess in All Its Forms

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Stinginess is of different kinds. There’s being stingy with wealth, stingy about showing noble, generous character and manners, and stingy about paying visits and keeping ties [to the degree] that’s required [in Islam].

And from the very worst that stinginess gets is a child being stingy towards his parents, a husband towards his wife, and a father towards his children.

Stinginess is reprehensible—there’s no good in it—and it’s condemnable—there’s nothing good to say about it.

It drives [people’s] hearts away, leads to coldness and distancing [among people], and removes feelings of love and affection.
