عن معاوية بن أبي سفيان -رضي الله عنهما- قال: قال رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم-: «لا تُلْحِفُوا في المسأَلة، فوالله لا يَسْألني أحدٌ منكم شيئًا، فَتُخْرِجَ له مسألته منِّي شيئًا وأنا له كارِهٌ، فيُبَارَك له فيما أَعْطَيتُه».
[صحيح] - [رواه مسلم.]

Abu Abdul-Rahman Mu'awiyah ibn Abi Sufyan, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that: The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, said: "Do not be importunate in asking (for something), for by Allah, if one of you asked me for something and I gave it to him while I am reluctant, there will be no blessing in what I gave him."

Explanation

Mu’awiyah reported about the prohibition of the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, concerning importunity and nagging persistence when asking (for something The meaning of ‘reluctant’ here means he dislikes giving him that thing, or dislikes giving him without any blessing attached to it. Al-Taibi said that blessing and his reluctant giving do not exist together. Al-Ghazaly said: Whoever takes something while knowing that the motive of the person who gave him was embarrassment of him or of the people present, and had it not been for that reason he would not have given him, then that thing is unlawful for him by consensus, and he is obliged to give it back or to give back what substitutes it to him or to his heirs. Al-Nawawi said in his Sharh (explanation): Scholars unanimously agreed that asking (for something) without necessity is forbidden. The scholars of our school of Fiqh (Shafi’i) held two different opinions regarding the person who is capable of earning a living; the first is that it is unlawful (for him to ask) based on the apparent meaning of the Hadiths. The second is that it is lawful but disliked, conditional upon three conditions: that he does not humiliate himself, that he does not ask persistently, and that he does not harm or burden the one he asks. If one of the three conditions is missing then it is unlawful by consensus. (Al-Qaary, Mirqat al-Mafatih Sharh Mishkat al-Masabih, 1st edition, Darul-Fikr, Beirut, 1422 AH, vol. 4/1309).
