The Importance Of Donation

You know that zakat or charity, is the Third Pillar of Islam, a major teaching. Being charitable and providing for the needy are important features of the Muslim character.

The existence of countless starving, poor, hungry and destitute Muslims and non-Muslims in the world points to the need for this essential teaching to be put into practice. Affluent Muslims may not realize how their wealth could strengthen whole communities. By giving Donation correctly is crucial to both the well-being of the needy as well as the ultimate happiness of the wealthy. The Prophet SAW emphasized this principle repeatedly.

The notion of Donation, especially giving and helping those in need, is so entrenched in Islam. We remind ourselves of it in every step we take for the work we do here at Big Blue Food Capital (M) Sdn Bhd. But sometimes we feel that all of us, cannot be reminded enough when Allah SWT say which means:

 

“Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned.”

(The Holy Qur’an, verse 245)

 

The Benefits of Donation

Allah SWT promises us that if we train ourselves to give in times of ease and hardship, our sustenance will increase. Donation awakens our souls and triggers genuine concern for the well-being of others. Priority is given to feeding the poor and the needy, as that is one of the best acts in Islam.

Giving from what we are given by Allah SWT not only releases us from the disease of want but also reminds us that everything belongs to Allah SWT and must be used for the well-being of all of humanity. We will never attain righteousness until we spend what we love, loving for our brothers and sisters what we love for ourselves.

 

A Protection From Calamity

By sacrificing part of one wealth and giving it in charity, the individual is guaranteeing protection for themselves from tragedy and misfortune. The Prophet SAW said: 

 

“The upper hand is better than the lower hand (he who gives is better than him who takes). One should start giving first to his dependents. And the best object of charity is that which is given by a wealthy person (from the money left after his expenses). And whoever abstains from asking others for some financial help, Allah will give him and save him from asking others, Allah will make him self-sufficient.” 

(Al-Bukhari)

 

It is considered better to give Donation than receive it. One should be wary of repeatedly soliciting and taking from Donation and Zakat funds. Those who refrain from taking these funds (so that more will be left for the other needy) will be provided for by Allah SWT and be made self-reliant by Him.

 

The Pitfall of Greed

Be careful of greed. The longer one holds onto money and fails to share it as charity, the harder it may be later on to part with that hoarded wealth. Hiding away one’s wealth and depriving the needy of even a small kindness will not only come back to haunt the greedy, but their misfortune will be multiplied and they will be led down a misguided path.

 

The Prophet SAW said:

“Avoid doing injustice to others, for on the Day of Judgment, it will turn into manifold darkness, and safeguard yourself against miserliness, for it ruined those who were before you. It incited them to murder and treating the unlawful as lawful.”

(Muslim)

 

Charity That Keeps On Giving

 If a person performs a deed that continues to benefit others in a good way, the performer of the good deeds will continue to collect the rewards for their single act for as long as it benefits others (even after the person passes away). This is referred to as “sadaqa jariyah”, or perpetual charity.

 

The Prophet SAW said:

“When a person dies his works end, except for three: ongoing charity, knowledge that is benefited from, and a righteous child who prays for him.”

(Muslim, Al-Tirmidhi, others)

 

The degree of the reward is dependent on the degree and significance of the benefit of the Donation act, and to what degree the Donation was given for the sake of Allah SWT.

Donation serves as a way to bring justice, balance and kindness to every society and community. It is our hope that the Muslim community fulfills their Donation’s duty correctly and does their part to eliminating poverty in communities everywhere.
