The third pillar of Islam and one of the most virtuous acts is Sadaqa/Charity. Love for wordly possession is primarily a disease of the heart while the purpose of Sadaqa is to act as its antidote or cure. Sadaqa serves as a form of dhikr to remind us that all forms of wealth come from ALLAH and what we possess is simply a short term loan for which we will be held accountable when our contract expires.
ALLAH (swt) says:
“Who among you is going to give best loan to ALLAH so that ALLAH should return it after multiplying many times? ALLAH has the power to decrease and increase it (wealth) and to Him you shall all return.” [Al-Baqara 2:245]
Prophet Muhammad (pbh) said:
“Whoever builds a mosque with the intention of seeking ALLAH’s pleasure, ALLAH will build for him a place in Paradise.”
[Sahih Al-Bukhai, Hadith #441]
Be generous, therefore, for whatever you spend on yourself is only for your temporary sustenance while whatever you spend in the way of Allah is an investment in your future for which will provide everlasting sustenance.
