Voluntary Charity

Voluntary charity is anything given as a means of getting closer to Allah, the Most High, in ways other than what is obligatory. From this definition, gifts and other things given with the intention of fostering love are excluded; they are not classified as alms which are specially defined by some rulings of the Shari’ah. Voluntary charity is recommended at all times, especially when needed..

Prosperity In This World and In The Hereafter.

Allah has created and determined human livelihood and sustenance to be different one from another. Apart from being a test, to see whether they are grateful or otherwise, it is also a blessing of Allah to His servants who are less fortunate. Payment of zakat is one of the pillars of Islam. Through this decree, it is clear that the teachings of Islam are concerned with the rights and welfare of the disadvantaged. At the same time, it educates and controls the souls of those who are well-off from being engrossed with arrogance, pride and selfishness.
