Sadaqah the only investment you will ever make with 100% guaranteed returns.
It seems today that many of us have lost the understanding of the benefits that Sadaqah brings, sp lets discuss the importance of Sadaqah.
Allah all mighty has promised us that "Those who spend their wealth in the Cause of Allaah, 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”
What does that mean?
Imagine having Bill Gate walk up to you with a blank cheque with his name signed off on it and telling you to take this and cash out whatever you want. Amazing right! Now imagine that Allah is telling you that when you give for his sake, he will reward you and his reward is that winch no human mind can ever imagine!
Very commonly prevalent in our communities is this notion of thinking that "I can not give charity because I my self am not so financially secure" How can we say such things when the prophet of Allah clearly informs us that giving in the way of Allah is a cure for the believers! Giving for Allah's sake will only increase you in wealth not decrease.
I mean take the example of Abu Baker and Uthman may Allah be pleased with them both, the first giving all his wealth for this religion and second giving half his wealth. Did history ever tell us that these two companions lived in poverty or died poor? on the contrary, we know that these two men were from the richest of the rich within the Muslim community, even after giving up all their wealth!
So remember Shaytan is but a clear enemy to the believing men and women, so do not fall into his trap and become lazy from giving in the way of Allah. There are many projects you can donate to, whether you are donating to Muslim Hands Canada Food4Kids, Major Giving, Gift Of Sight, Community Water Well, Or Sponsor An Orphan project know that your investment is with Allah!
