Page 34 - Your relationship with Allah

Basic HTML Version

Ibn Katheer (may Allah have mercy on him) said: i.e., if your relatives and those to whom We have
enjoined you to give ask you for something, and you do not have anything and you turn away from
them because you cannot afford to spend, “then, speak unto them a soft, kind word” meaning, make
them a promise, in kind and gentle words, that when the provision of Allah comes, we will give you
some, if Allah wills.
Do not follow up your spending with reminders
Those who spend their wealth in the Cause of Allah, and do not follow up their gifts with reminders
of their generosity or with injury, their reward is with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall
they grieve”
“Believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), and spend of that whereof He has made you
trustees. And such of you as believe and spend (in Allah’s way), theirs will be a great reward”
Giving charity increase the wealth
“The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah, is as the likeness of a grain (of
corn); it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. Allah gives manifold increase to whom
He wills. And Allah is All Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower.”
It was narrated from Abu Huraira radiallahu anhu that the Prophet sallallahu alaihe wassallam said:
“There is no day on which the people get up but two angels come down and one of them says, ‘O
Allah, give in compensation to the one who spends (in charity),’ and the other says, ‘O Allah, destroy
the one who withholds.’”
It was narrated from Abu Huraira radiallahu anhu that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihe
wassallam said: “Allah said: ‘Spend, O son of Adam, and I shall spend on you.’”
