Ramadhan 1427 (4): Zakat and Sadaqah..

Collect a portion of their wealth in charity, so that you may purify and bless them by means of it...
(Al Quran 9:103)
...Whetever you spend (in Allah's cause), He will replace it. He is the best of the providers.
(Al Quran 34:39)
The Prophet (SAW) said: 'An act of charity is due every day from every joint of the body (as a means of showing gratitude to Allah for one's body and good health): Helping a person to ride hsis animal (or vehicle) or load his baggage is charity, a good word is charity, and showing someone the way is also charity'
(Bukhari and Muslim)
The Prophet (SAW) said: 'Every act of goodness is charity'.
(Bukhari and Muslim)
The Prophet (SAW) said: ' Do not hold back (from giving to peple and helping them), or Allah will withold (His mercy and blessings) from you.'
(Bukhari and Muslim)
The Prophet (SAW) said: 'A person's wealth will never decrease from giving charity'.

We all know that zakah is one of the pillars of Islam, but how many of us really take heed in our actions? Many of us know these a'Hadith and still live in fear of poverty if we give anything of our wealth...others, well they simply see it as a "class thing"...but we're Muslims! It's our duty!!
Wake up Muslims, it's Ramadhan, purify yourselves!

‘Surely they who recite the Book of Allah and keep up prayer and spend out of what We have given them secretly and openly, hope for a gain which will not perish’
(Surah al Fatir, Verse 29)

'By no means shall you attain righteousness until you spend (benevolently) out of what you love; and whatever thing you spend, Allah surely knows it'
(Surah aal Imran, Verse 92)
"The parable of those who spend their property in the way of Allah is as the parable of a grain growing seven ears (with) a hundred grains in every ear; and Allah multiplies for whom He chooses; and Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing."
(Surah Baqarah, Verse 261)
