Give More, Gain More this Ramadan

‘The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed of grain, which grows seven ears; in each ear is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies His reward for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and all-Knowing.’ [Qur’an 2:261]

This divine promise was made by Allah to all who give selflessly to help the poor and destitute, wherever they may be. We are truly blessed to know that the more we give, the more we will gain, by the generosity of Allah.

Maximise these blessed 30 days, and Give More, Gain

Zakat, the Third Pillar

‘And establish prayer, give Zakat and obey the Messenger so that mercy may be shown to you.’ [Qur’an 24:56]

Such is the importance of Zakat that it is mentioned in the Qur’an alongside Salah 30 times, and literally means ‘purification and increase’. Zakat is a compulsory charity that each adult Muslim, of sound mind, must give each year. If your saved wealth exceeds the value of Nisab, it becomes obligatory.
