Financial Sacrifices
Financial Sacrifices

“Doomed are the people who spend hundreds for show and display, but when it comes to spending in the way of Allah, they find all sorts of excuses. It is shameful indeed that a person should enter this Jama‘at and not leave behind his miserliness and meanness. Allah has so ordained, that the party of His men always needs financial assistance in the beginning. Even our Holy Prophet (sa) received Chanda from his disciples, of whom Hadhrat Abu Bakr (ra) was foremost.

“So come forward to assist with manly courage and without hesitation. Those who help us today will witness Allah’s help.”

(Majmu‘ah Ishtiharat, volume 3, p. 156)

“It goes without saying, that you cannot love two things at the same time: it is not possible for you to love wealth as well as to love Allah. You can love only one of them. Lucky is he who loves Allah. If any of you loves Him and spends his/her wealth in His cause, I am certain that his/her wealth will increase more than that of others, for wealth doesn’t come by itself, rather it comes by Allah’s will. Whoever parts with some of his wealth for the sake of Allah, will surely get it back. But he who loves his wealth and doesn’t serve in the way of Allah as he should, will surely lose his wealth.

“Do not ever imagine that your wealth comes of your own effort, no, it comes from Allah Almighty. And do not ever imagine that you do a favour to Allah or his Appointed One by offering your money or helping in any other way. Rather it is His favour upon you that he calls you to this service.”

(Majmu’ah Ishtaharat, vol. 3, pp. 497-498)
