It is reported that ‘Amr b. Qays – Al-Malâ`î said,
“They used to dislike a man giving his child something with which the child would then go out and be seen by a poor person, causing him to cry over his family; or be seen by an orphan who would then cry over his family.”
-Imâm Ahmad, Al-Zuhd ,Vol. 3, pp.268.
[‘Amr b. Qays Al-Malâ`î lived in the time of the younger Tâbi’ûn. He died in 146H.]
