Said Ibn Aamir Al-Jumahi

Thereupon Umar said, “Praise be to God. My impression of him has not been tainted.” He later sent a thousand dinars to Sa’id to help him out. When his wife saw the amount she said. “Praise be to God Who has enriched us out of your service. Buy some provisions for us and get us a home help.”

“Is there any way of spending it better?” asked Sa’id. “Let us spend it on whoever comes to us and we would get something better for it by thus dedicating it to God.”

“That will be better,” she agreed.

He put the dinars into small bags and said to a member of his family, “Take this to the widow of so and so, and the orphans of that person, to the needy in that family and to the indigent of the family of that person.”

Sa’id ibn Aamir al-Jumahi was indeed one of those who deny themselves even when they are afflicted with severe poverty.
