Investing money in way of ALLAH

AL-Quran 35:029 “Surely, those who recite the book of GOD, observe the Contact Prayers (Salat), and from our provisions to them they spend - secretly and publicly - are engaged in an investment that never loses.”

ALLAh swt has said on several places in Quran that when one spends in His way, he invests in his account of akhira. What one spends in this world is very little but what one will receive in hereafter will be huge. Those who spent 10 rupees here will receive 70 rupees in hereafter and those 70 rupees will be more than what we can actually imagine. Thus by investing in the way of ALLAH means to spend on poor people.

Islam has devised a complete system to help poor and has made it an act of great reward for us. This system is the system of zakat. Zakat, is now paid as an obligation and mostly people pay it half heartedly as if they do not want to pay that money but are obligated or compelled to do that. After the wisal of Muhammad saww, hazrat abu bakar siddique r.a. spent his life in fighting those who refused to give zakat.

Apart from zakat, the voluntary charity is so much appreciated in islam that ALLAH swt himself has given glad tidings to such people. The verse Quoted in the start of this article is the proof. Voluntary charity means feeling for poor people and feels the urge to help them. Islam has not restricted this help to muslims only but it encourages to help every person who is in need.

Those who spend in ALLAH’s ways voluntarily, openly and hidden they actually fear ALLAH and feel the pan for others. Helping others means humanity. And we muslims are so blessed to have humanity as a basic part of our religion.

Invest in the way of ALLAH as much as you can, do not hesitate to even give a date in HIS way. HE knows what you have spent keeping what in your heart i.e. your intentions.
