rendered back to you, and ye shall not Be dealt with unjustly.

273. (Charity is) for those in need, who, in Allah's cause are restricted (from travel), and

cannot move about in the land, seeking (For trade or work): the ignorant man thinks,

because of their modesty, that they are free from want. Thou shalt know them by their

(Unfailing) mark: They beg not importunately from all the sundry. And whatever of good

ye give, be assured Allah knoweth it well.
