The Prophet (saw) said, 'Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity'. [Tirmidhi]
This Ramadan, our message to you is: Trust Allah, Hold onto Hope, Help Save Lives. Charity is an incredibly powerful worship, and the below story reminds us that we never know which calamities charity is protecting us from.
In these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever that we give charity to protect ourselves. SubhanAllah, we have no idea what blessings our charity may contain. We have no idea whose du’as they are answering, what calamities they are protecting us from - or even the weight of them on the Divine scales.
As Allah (swt) says, 'Whoever saves one (life) - it is as if he had saved humanity' [The Noble Qur’an, 5:32] - the impact of a single donation is truly incredible, whether in this life or the next!
