“One who wears a garment of falsehood”

عَنْ جَابِرٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ:

 «مَنْ أُعْطِيَ عَطَاءً فَوَجَدَ فَلْيَجْزِ بِهِ،

 وَمَنْ لَمْ يَجِدْ فَلْيُثْنِ، فَإِنَّ مَنْ أَثْنَى فَقَدْ شَكَرَ، 

وَمَنْ كَتَمَ فَقَدْ كَفَرَ، 

وَمَنْ تَحَلَّى بِمَا لَمْ يُعْطَهُ كَانَ كَلَابِسِ ثَوْبَيْ زُورٍ»

 وَمَعْنَى قَوْلِهِ: «وَمَنْ كَتَمَ فَقَدْ كَفَرَ» يَقُولُ: قَدْ كَفَرَ تِلْكَ النِّعْمَةَ

Jãbir narrated that the Prophet (صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) said: 

“Whoever is given a gift, then if he finds something let him reciprocate.

If he has nothing, then let him mention some praise. 

For whoever has mentioned some praise, then he has expressed his gratitude. 

And whoever refrains (from doing so) then he has committed Kufr. 

And whoever pretends to be satisfied by that which he was not given, he is like the one who wears a garment of falsehood.”

[Abu ‘Eisa said:] the meaning of his saying: “And whoever refrains, then he has committed Kufr” is that he feigned that bounty.

[It was related by [Abu ‘Eisa] at-Tirmidhi [No.2034], who said it was a good and Ghareeb hadith and Albaani in Sahih Al jam’[No. 5933] said it is good Hadith [Hasan].]
