Why to Donate?
Aayat: مَنْ ذَالَّذِیْ یُقْرِضُ اللّٰہُ قَرْضاً حَسَناً فَیُضٰعِفَہُ لَہ‘ وَلَہ‘ اَجْرٌ کَرِیْم
Meaning: Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He will multiply it for him & he will have a noble reward?
In this verse, a different type of pattern is high-lighting on how to spend your belongings on the path of Allah.
When this verse was revealed , Abu Dahdah came to Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) “O’ Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him), Do Allah asks us for debt ? Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said, “Yes.” He said, “Show me your hands” He holded Prophet’s hand & said, “I have given, this garden as a debt to Allah.” There are 600 trees of dates in this garden. His wife & children was living in this. Then Hazrat Abu Dahdah came towards garden & called her, standing outside, “O’ mother of Dahdah.” She answered, “Yes.” He said, “Come out of this garden with children. I have given this garden as a debt to Allah”. When she, the righteous woman, heard this, so she said. “O’ the father of Dahdah. you have done very profitable deal.” She came out with her children & belongings. These were the students of, school of love , on whom the teachers were also proud as well as their God. Because of their deeds, today the mankind is proud. (Tafseer Ziyaul Quran)
Hazrat Abdul Rahman Bin Auf (My Allah Be Pleased With Him) has narrated, that Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said, “There are three things, on God’s swear, who has Muhammad’s life in his hands. Even if I swear on him (there’s no issue) that no goods become less after giving charity. So give charity & no man forbear any injustice , just for the sake of Allah. So, on the day of judgement , Almighty Allah will rise his status. And nobody opens the door of questions by himself. But Allah opens the door of proud for him. (Kanzul Ummal)
Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah Be Pleased With Him) narrated that Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said, “None of the day is like that, in the morning two Angels reveals & one of them says, “O’ God, give reward to the one who spends & the other one says, “O’ God, offence the one who don’t sends.” (Bukhari Sharif)
Hazrat Ali (May Allah Be Pleased With Him) narrated that Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said, “Be early to give charity as problems don’t overcome.” (At’Targheeb Wat’Tarheeb)
The meaning to spend on the path of Allah is very broad. From which, one is donating in Islamic Institutions & it has two profits.
The one is that the knowledge of Deen will take place & it is a perpetual charity, whose reward will have been given & the second profit is to help the poor & orphan children.
