The Demanding Beggar

Mufti Taqi Uthmani has mentioned an amazing interaction between himself & his honourable father Mufti Shafee (Rahmatullah Alayh). He says; "It was the habit of my father to always give beggars something. Once I was in the car with him. At a certain junction, we stopped. A beggar came & asked in a demanding voice for some money.
My father took out something from his pocket & handed it over to him.

I submitted: "My father, these type of beggars are generally not worthy of being granted money. Should we give them or not?"

The amazing answer which he stated is still engraved in the recesses of my heart. He said, "what u have said is correct. However, ponder, if we also have to receive from ALLAH Ta'ala according to our worth, then what will happen to us ?"

OH MERCIFUL ALLAH, we are such sinful servants yet YOU still continue to bestow YOUR Bounties upon us.
OH LOVING ALLAH, we use the very bounties that YOU have favoured us with to disobey YOU yet YOU are always so kind to us.
YA RAHMAANUR RAHEEM forgive us all  our sins & take us away from this world in a state pleasing to YOU.
   Ameen Ya Rabbul Aalimeen
