Charity Is From Islaam
Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, has stated: “Spend from what we have provided you before death approaches one of you and he says, ‘My Lord, if only you would delay me for a brief term so I would give charity and be among the righteous.'”
Jumu’ah Khutbah By Abu Khadeejah highlighting how charity is from the most noble of deeds that Allaah has legislated for the believers. He explains how simple kind acts can aid a person to attain Paradise – he also cautions from listening to those who stand in way of giving charity in Allaah’s way.
Jumu’ah Khutbah By Abu Hakeem in the second part of which he eloquently highlights the various rewards that Allaah has prepared for those pious individuals who aid in establishing a place of worship for Allaah. After the Khutbah, both Abu Hakeem and Abu Khadeejah further elaborate on the affair of establishing a Masjid for Allaah, and its effect upon the Eemaan and piety. Some lovely stories concerning the generosity of the Sahaabah and the Prophet (salallaahu alaihi wassallam).
A man asked the Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “Which charity brings the greatest reward?” He replied: “That you give in charity when you are healthy, feeling miserly, whilst you fear poverty and are in hope of becoming rich. So do not delay until you are at the point of death and then you say: “Give this to so-and-so and give that to so-and-so,” when at that point [your wealth and property] already belongs to so-and-so!” (Al-Bukhaaree, no. 1419)
