The matter of spending in the cause of Allah is from the most noble deeds in the Deen of Islaam and is an act of worship that carries with it great reward.
Allah, the Exalted, says:
“And whatsoever you spend of anything (in Allah’s Cause), He will replace it.” [As-Sabaa`: 39]
“And whatever you spend in good, it is for yourselves, when you spend not except seeking Allah’s Countenance. And whatever you spend in good, it will be repaid to you in full, and you shall not be wronged.” [Al-Baqarah: 272]
“And whatever you spend in good, surely Allah knows it well.” [Al-Baqarah: 273]
Ibn Mas`ood (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu) reported: Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu ’alayhi wa sallam) asked, “Who of you loves the wealth of his heir more than his own wealth?” The Companions said: “O Messenger of Allah! There is none of us but loves his own wealth more.” He (sallAllahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “His wealth is that which he has sent forward, but that which he retains belongs to his heir.” [Al-Bukhari].
This hadeeth spotlights in a wise fashion the significance and perception of spending in the way of Allah. The real wealth of man is that which he spends in His way and the channels He approves. Only this wealth will stand him in good stead on the Day of Resurrection. Otherwise, what apart from it, will be personally used up by him in the worldly life, and what he leaves behind will fall to the lot of his heirs. It implies that if Allah has bestowed worldly riches upon a man, he should spend them to the maximum in the way to Allah. [Riyaadh-us-Saaliheen]
Shaykh Naasir Zekri (hafidhahullah) will admonish us regarding this essential affair, bringing the necessary proofs from the Qur’aan and Sunnah upon the understanding of our Pious Predecessors and by the Permission of Allah we will all be encouraged to spend in the way of our Lord (Subhaanahu wa Ta’alaa).
We ask Allah, Al-Kareem to make us from those who willingly spend in His Cause and we seek refuge in Him from miserliness.
