Hadith: God Rewards Feeding the Hungry
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) quoted God as saying: "O son of Adam, I asked you for food and you fed Me not." (The person) will respond: "O Lord, how could I feed You when You are the Lord of the worlds?" (God) will then say: "Did you not know that My (hungry servant) asked you for food and you fed him not? Did you not know that had you fed him you would surely have found (the reward for doing so) with Me?"
Hadith Qudsi 18
The Prophet also said: "Feed the hungry, visit the sick and set free the captives."
Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Hadith 552
