‫َو َمن يَ ْب َخلْ فَإِنَّ َما يَ ْب َخ ُل َعن نَّ ْف ِس ِه‬
"He who is stingy is in fact stingy because of his
nafs.”

Allah Ta’ala says:
Rasulullah (saws) said:
“The miser is far from Allah, far from Jannat, far
from people and close to the Fire.”
Bukhl is to withhold
spending when such
spending is necessary
(WAJIB) according to the
Shariat and in order to be
kind
SINFUL


Contrary to the order of
the Shariah is Bukhl.
A step higher is called
Shuhha in terminology
of Shariat, an
ambitious and envious
manner of the nafs.
This is HARAAM
NOT SINFUL

Contrary to kindness
(murrawwat). This
degree of bukhl
although not sinful is
nor good. Elimination
of even this degree of
bukhl is commendable
and meritorious

"Beware of greed (avarice) for indeed greed (avarice) destroyed
those who came before you. It ordered them to cut off ties of
relationship so they cut off ties of relationship, and it ordered
them to be miserly so they were miserly, and it ordered them to
commit sins so they committed sins. (Abu Dawud)
Avarice (shuhha) and Imaan will not combine in the heart of a
Believer. (Ahmad)
Craving is of two types: Craving which is an affliction and craving
which is beneficial. As for the craving which is beneficial, then
it is one's desire for that which is obedience to Allah, and as for
the craving which is an affliction then it is a person's craving
after this world
