Often we forget what a wonderful blessing and duty charity is for the person who is able to give – no matter how little. The Prophet (PBUH) said, “A charity is due for every joint in each person on every day the sun comes up.” (Source - Bukhari)
As Muslims, we love to give for the sake of Allah’s love, and to help our Ummah, but Allah subhana wa ta’ala also promised great practical reward and protection.
It’s an incredible way to bless a success and protect it from bringing calamity. Giving regularly provides us with blessings in this life and in the hereafter.
The blessing of charity during hardship
Families all over the world are facing financial hardship, but for Muslims, we understand struggle as a test from Allah. By giving Sadaqah during hard times, we reaffirm our gratitude to Allah and our belief that only He, with His infinite mercy that can change our situation.
‘’Allah removes what He wishes, for he has the mother of books.’’ (Quran 13:39)
What charity should I give?
There’s no restriction on what your charity should be, all that matters is that you give with intention, and pray for your charity to be accepted. But since Sadaqah Jariyah – or ongoing charity – provides benefits to those who receive, and blessings to those who give year after year, we think it’s one of the kindest, most rewarding ways to give.
From providing a struggling parent with a livelihood such as beekeeping or a tailoring business, to installing a well for an entire community, we offer so many ways for you to donate, no matter your budget.
You can provide warmth by donating a winter family emergency kit, gift an olive tree to a farmer, give access to water in Gaza for years to come, or sponsor an orphan for an entire year.
Allah subahana wa ta’ala has also promised the power of Sadaqah to protect us from future hardships. “Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.”Source - Tirmidhi
Heal your illness with Sadaqah
Allah in His compassion and generosity, also gifted us with charity as a way of healing for those experiencing hardship.
When we give Sadaqah, it helps to heal sickness, if Allah wills it.
“Those who spend in charity will be richly rewarded”Source - Quran 57:10
Forgiveness from Allah
Sadaqah is also a way of seeking Allah’s forgiveness for sins and The Messenger (PBUH) even promised that whatever your hardship, charity is a solution.
‘Charity extinguishes the sins like water extinguishes a fire'Source - Ibn Majah
Sadaqah protects from future hardship
Many people like to give Sadaqah to bless a marriage, new home, graduation, or good exam results. Others are encouraged to give Sadaqah when they get a promotion, new job, or financial success, since charity blesses and secures our wealth and success.
It is truly a wonderful blessing to have enough to be able to give, and with this act, our blessings our multiplied.
