Why should I donate to my local mosque?
You can imagine the significance of spending in Allah’s cause by the following verse: “The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is as the likeness of a grain which grows seven ears, in every ear a hundred grains. Allah increases manifold to whom He wills.” (Al-Baqarah: 261)
Whenever you are spending in the way of Allah, you should be generous or else you are depriving yourselves of the benefits. In this regard, Allah the Almighty says in surat Muhammad, 38: “Beware! You are called to spend in the way of Allah, yet some among you hoard. But he who hoards does so for himself: Allah is above need, and it is you who are the needy. If you turn away, then Allah will bring other people in your place who will not be like you.”
We should spend our money, time, effort, energy, and knowledge in the way of Allah so that it will give us happiness and we’ll be rewarded. There is a great sense of joy and satisfaction when we do something by ourselves to share with others physically, mentally, morally, and financially. Spending in the way of Allah is a trade, a bargain and a business with Allah. It sounds strange, doesn’t it? And you may ask how can one make a trade with Allah. Read this Qur’anic verse: “Those who read the Book of Allah, establish regular prayer, and spend in the way of Allah secretly and openly out of what we have provided for them. They hope for a commerce that will never fail.” (Fatir: 29)
