“And let not those among you who are blessed
with graces and wealth swear not to give to their kinsmen, the poor, and those
who left their homes for Allah’s cause. Let them pardon and forgive. Do you not
wish that Allah should forgive you?” (Qur’an, 24:22). Abu Bakr (ra) had cut off
his financial support of his relative Mustah because Mustah had participated in
the slander against his daughter `A’ishah (ra). After this verse was revealed,
he resumed and even increased the amount he gave Mustah in financial support.
