Whoever Guides Someone to Virtue

Abu Mas’ud ‘Uqbah bin ‘Amr Al-Ansari Al-Badri (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Whoever guides someone to virtue will be rewarded equivalent to him who practices that good action.”

[Sahih Muslim]


The statement quoted in this Hadith was made by the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) when, on a certain occasion, someone requested him to give an animal for riding. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) replied that he did not have any. A man who was present there said that he could show him the man who could help him in the matter. This is how the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) revealed the reward of directing people to good deeds, which is mentioned in this Hadith.

And Allah Knows Best!
