Sadaqah Is About Love For God

Sadaqah Is About Love For God




Sadaqah (sadaqa, saddle, sedekah) is an Islamic term that means voluntary charity for the cause of Allah. This concept encompasses any act of giving out of compassion, love, friendship, and generosity.


Sadaqah ought to run only out of affection for God, out of the desire to do good to His creation. Giving sadaqah will not diminish a Muslim's wealth. It serves as a sign of gratitude to Allah and yields rewards in the next life.

Allah says: "Indeed, the men who practice charity and the women who practice charity and [they who] have loaned Allah a goodly loan - it will be multiplied for them, and they will have a noble reward." Abu Musa narrated that the Prophet said, "Every Muslim has to give in sadaqah" The people asked, "O Allah's Messenger!


If somebody has nothing to convey, what will he do?


" He said, "He ought to work along with his hands and profit himself and conjointly concede charity (from what he earns)." The people further asked, "If he cannot do even that?
" He replied, "Then he should help the needy who appeal for help." Then the people asked, "If he cannot do that?
" He replied, "Then he should perform all that is good and keep away from all that is evil and this will be regarded as charitable deeds."


A man came and asked the Sheikh, "Can I make sadaqah with the intention of getting more money in return?" The Sheikh replied by saying that one can make the intention of getting a reward in this world or in the Hereafter when giving out sadaqah. Soon afterward, the man gave the Sheikh an envelope with a pile of hundred dollars in it. The Sheikh asked the man, "Does this have anything to do with the question you asked about Sadaqah the other day?" The man replied, "Whenever my business was going downhill, the more I gave away the quicker my business returned." Indeed, Allah treats us the same way we treat our bank accounts. When we give generously without counting, Allah also gives us generously without counting. If we constantly count to the pennies, Allah does the same to us. A true Muslim genuinely believes that Allah is the creator of the Heaven and the Earth, 

then why do we have to have any doubts on Allah's words?


There is a story of a man who said that he would give something in charity.

He went out along with his object of charity and inadvertently gave it to an outlaw.
Next morning the folks same that he had given his object of charity to an outlaw.
(On hearing that) he said, "O Allah! All the praises are for you.

I will give alms again." And so he again went out with his alms and (unknowingly) gave it to an adulteress.

Next morning the folks same that he had given his almsgiving to associate fornicatress last night. The man said, "O Allah! All the praises are for you. (I gave my alms) to an adulteress. I will give alms again.
" So he went out with his alms again and (unknowingly) gave it to a rich person.


(The people) next morning same that he had given his almsgiving to a multi-millionaire.
He said, "O Allah! All the praises are for you. (I had given alms) to an outlaw, to an adulteress and to a wealthy man.


" Then somebody came and same to him, "The alms which you gave to the thief, might make him abstain from stealing, and that given to the adulteress might make
her abstain from ineligible sexuality (adultery), which given to the rich man would possibly build him take a lesson from it and pay his wealth that Supreme Being has given
him, in Allah's cause."
