Sunan Abi Dawood 1631
Abu Hurairah reported Messenger of Allah ﷺ as saying:

The poor man(miskin) is not one who is admitted (by the people) with one or two dates or with one or two morsels but is one, who does not beg anything from his people and is not taken notice of so that alms may be given to him.
حَدَّثَنَا عُثْمَانُ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، وَزُهَيْرُ بْنُ حَرْبٍ، قَالاَ حَدَّثَنَا جَرِيرٌ، عَنِ الأَعْمَشِ، عَنْ أَبِي صَالِحٍ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏
"‏ لَيْسَ الْمِسْكِينُ الَّذِي تَرُدُّهُ التَّمْرَةُ وَالتَّمْرَتَانِ وَالأُكْلَةُ وَالأُكْلَتَانِ وَلَكِنَّ الْمِسْكِينَ الَّذِي لاَ يَسْأَلُ النَّاسَ شَيْئًا وَلاَ يَفْطِنُونَ بِهِ فَيُعْطُونَهُ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
