  3. 3. Ibn Umar reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The most beloved people to Allah are those who are most beneficial to the people. The most beloved deed to Allah is to make a Muslim happy, or to remove one of his troubles, or to forgive his debt, or to feed his hunger. That I walk with a brother regarding a need is more beloved to me than that I seclude myself in this mosque in Medina for a month. Whoever swallows his anger, then Allah will conceal his faults. Whoever suppresses his rage, even though he could fulfill his anger if he wished, then Allah will secure his heart on the Day of ResurrecGon. Whoever walks with his brother regarding a need unGl he secures it for him, then Allah the Exalted will make his fooGng firm across the bridge on the day when the fooGngs are shaken.” - Source: al-Muʻjam al-Awsaṭ by Imam Al-Tabarani, 6192
