Allah Almighty, the Most Generous and the Most Magnanimous, has liberally distributed numerous resources and wealth of all kinds, out of His extremely vast and numerous treasures, to many. To some a little less and to a great majority very limited or nothing at all.This temporal world, where-in we all live for a specific given period, Allah Almighty has made it a test case to record, judge and reward mankind accordingly such as the following:

  • Do the ones blessed with abundant resources, show their gratitude and thankfulness to Allah Almighty for the immense bounties, wealth and resources! Gratitude and thankfulness imply sharing (giving in charity) some of your resources with the needy, poor and the deprived for their uplift, betterment, and sustenance!
  • Many are blessed with (comparatively) lesser resources and wealth. Do they show their gratitude and thankfulness to Allah Almighty by sharing, whatever possible, with those blessed with even lesser bounties! Why such people should be expected to share (giving in charity) their resources with the less fortunate? Reason: Though blessed with less resources, they are still leading a comfortable and sustainable life!
  • Large number of people are blessed with limited resources. Do they still engage in ibadaat to show their thankfulness and gratitude to Allah Almighty to have blessed them with a life and family to live with? While at the same time, do they exercise Tawakkul in Allah Almighty’s mercy, benevolence and kindness knowing fully well that He will take care of all their requirements of sustenance and nourishment?

Taqwa implies freely giving and sharing, some of the worldly possessions, blessed by Allah Almighty, with the needy. All Muslims, especially the committed ones (Muttaqeen) strive to do so. Momineen and Mominaat always endeavor to remain generous toward the poor with the bounties and provisions that Allah Almighty has blessed them with.

Taqwa is an act of piety to freely give to the poor and the needy for the sake and pleasure of Allah Almighty alone. Those granted with this passion and desire to please Allah Almighty are blessed people. We all must strive to be amongst such a group of chosen and guided Muslims.
