[Learn to Give]
Prophet Muhammed (Peace Be Upon Him) was sent as an example for mankind. Throughout his life he showed us the importance of Sadaqah by giving whatever he had as charity and saving very little of what he owned for himself.
The poor are entitled to receive adequate charity for them to meet their basic needs, while the well-to-do are duty bound to give them charity. This arrangement is not equal, but it is equitable and produces justice.
Don’t worry! No one has ever been reduced to poverty because of giving charity. The Almighty promises us that if we train ourselves to give in times of ease and hardship, our sustenance will increase. Giving awakens our souls and triggers genuine concern for the well-being of others. Priority is given to feeding the poor and the needy, as that is one of the best acts in Islam.
Giving from what we are given – from The Provider and Owner of everything – not only releases us from the disease of selfishness in our heart but also reminds us that everything belongs to Allah (swt) and must be used for the well-being of all humanity.
We will never attain righteousness until we spend what we love, loving for our brothers and sisters what we love for ourselves.
Know that everything you have is not absolutely yours. Learn to give.
