We have seen people coming together to help whenever Pakistan and Muslims are in need. Charity during COVID-19 happens to be an epitome of this. We have the most generous nation and greatest sense of ownership seen everywhere. Since the pandemic started back in 2019, the highest amount of charity, food packages and essential items were seen distributed amongst people. This feeling of “giving” is instilled in people because it is mandatory to give Zakat in Islam and the concept of “Bhai Chara” provokes such philanthropic activities.
Rizq Bantne se Bharta Hai
So as to refresh the feeling of Ramzan 2021 in Pakistan, lets join hands for a better and nourished Pakistan and let’s not forget those, who need us. Those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah and do not follow up their spending by stressing their benevolence and causing hurt, will find their reward secure with their Lord. They have no cause for fear and grief. As one of the pillars of Islam, zakat is a form of obligatory charity that has the potential to ease the suffering of millions. With the literal meaning of the word being ‘to cleanse,’ Muslims believe that paying zakat purifies, increases and blesses the remainder of their wealth. For zakat has so much importance in Islam being one of the five pillars,
“Whoever pays the zakat on his wealth will have its evil removed from him.”
(Ibn Khuzaimah and at-Tabarani)
Charity in Ramadan
During Ramzan, both fasting and demonstrations of noble cause are compulsory upon Muslims who can do as such. Fasting from dawn to nightfall is illustrative of an otherworldly purifying, a work to turn out to be nearer to God, and an endeavor to acquire a superior comprehension of human torment. The demonstration of fasting calls for Muslims to rehearse self-control and penance, just as consider and show empathy for poor people and less lucky. Muslims are reminded to be liberal and increment their magnanimous exercises. Accordingly, during Ramadan, much altruistic giving is finished by the local area. Gifts are typically centered on providing for those stricken by neediness and yearning. In festival of Ramadan, consider giving to one of these profoundly appraised noble causes which either work prevalently in nations with enormous Muslim populaces or endeavor towards the lightening of yearning.
One of the entry ways that Allah has opened to His captives to acquire large prizes in the month Ramadan is through Sadaqa (giving foundation/donations). Islam consistently informs its believers to give a lot with respect to noble cause, particularly during the month of Ramadan. Furthermore, that assumes to be the way of devotees; liberal. Allah and His Prophet S.A.W requested, even offered guide to the believers of Islam to be a liberal and benevolent individual. One who gives offerings will be compensated a shade in the Last Day. The courier of Allah – harmony and supplication of Allah arrive talked about the 7 gatherings of individuals who will get conceal on the day where there are no shade except for from Allah, that is the Day of Judgement.
One of the gatherings is:
“A man who gives charitable gifts so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given.”
(Narrated by. Bukhari in hadith no. 1421)
