Generosity and Kindness must be based on faith

Ibn Katheer (rahimahullaah) said:

وقد ذكرنا ترجمة حاتم طيء أيام الجاهلية عند ذكرنا من مات من أعيان المشهورين فيها وما كان يسديه حاتم إلى الناس من المكارم والإحسان ، إلا أن نفع ذلك في الآخرة أي : ( مشروط ) بالإيمان ، وهو ممن لم يقل يوماً من الدهر رب اغفر لي خطيئتي يوم الدين .

We have mentioned the biography of Haatim Tay’ in the days of the Jaahiliyyah when we mentioned those who died of the famous people of that era, and we referred to his generosity and kindness to people. But generosity and kindness must be based on faith if they are to benefit a person in the Hereafter, but he never said one day, “O Lord, forgive me my sins on the Day of Judgement.”
