Generosity… A Way of Life

Generosity… A Way of Life

With our occasional donations at different times of the year, we tend to believe that we have performed the obligation of spending on others. Generosity is not a one time act; it’s a person’s lifestyle, a daily habit, a way of life and the ways to achieving this are limitless! It does not only imply spending one’s money for a good cause as that is just a part of it. Generosity is the result of being kind toward others with everything that we have been blessed with; it could be with our wealth, time, advice, expertise or even our smile. It is about sharing it with others with a big heart! Continue reading “Generosity… A Way of Life”

Which is Better – Giving Zakaah Openly or Concealing It?

Benefitting the Deceased by giving Charity on his Behalf

 

QUESTION: My father died – may Allaah have mercy on him – and I want to give ongoing charity on behalf of his soul so as to increase his good deeds and raise him in status before his Lord, such as building a mosque or printing a book by which the Muslims will benefit. But one of the shaykhs gave us a fatwa stating that this will not benefit him because it is not from his wealth, and ongoing charity has to be set up by the person himself during his own lifetime before his death, and has to continue after his death. Is what the Shaykh said correct?
If it is not correct, then please advise me and tell me the best way to benefit my deceased father. May Allaah reward you with good.
