We all 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 Prophet (PBUH) said, “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity” (Al-Tirmidhi)
On the day when all other shade will be gone, ALLAH will shade and shelter those who give charity and care for the poor. The Muslim’s sacrifice in this life will be their protection on the day of judgement.
By sacrificing part of one’s wealth and giving it in charity, the individual is guaranteeing protection for themselves from tragedy and misfortune.
If a person performs a deed that continues to benefit others in a good way, the performer of the deed will continue to collect the rewards for her 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 (PBUH) , “Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.”” (Al-Tirmidhi)
As it is better to give than to take, i must suggest y’all to give as much as you can. As Charity serves as a way to bring justice, balance and kindness to every society and community
