BE LIKE A FLOWING CONTAINER, ELSE ALLAH HOARDS FROM YOU
- Don’t Count what you Spend: Asma’a reported that the Messenger of Allah s.a.w said:
“Spend and don’t count lest Allah counts for you, and don’t hoard up lest Allah withhold from you. Spend what you can.”
– Bukhari & Muslim
If you keep strict account of your charity, Allah will also keep strict account of His gifts and wealth on you. This principle applies everywhere. Suppose a rich father gave his son some coins of silver and then asked back for one of them. He did not return it fearing that it would fall short of purchasing sweets. His father laughed and said: “How foolish is the boy! He does not understand where the money comes from.” Had he returned it to him, he would have given him more, because a father, is pleased with his son, he gives more.
2. Don’t be like a Constantly Full Container wherein Nothing can be Added: Abu Hurairah reported that the Messenger of Allah s.a.w said:
“The Almighty Allah says: O son of Adam! Spend, you will then be spent for.”
– Bukhari & Muslim
You will be given wealth and rewards from the treasures of Allah, in case you give away in charity, because a cistern when vacated is usually filled up and that which remains filled up without consumption is not at all filled up.
The Qur’an says:
“And whatever thing you spend, it will be given in exchange.”
