RAMADAN DAY 8 1441
1. Allah is telling us more of the characteristics of the ‘abraar’: giving food you love to others.
2. Think of your children compared to the orphans. Who would buy the orphans what they like to eat?
1. Give food to the needy and the orphans (and prisoners if you can)
2. Give not what is lesser but equivalent to what you love to eat or even better.
Ibn Kathir (رحمه الله) related about
﴾ ويطعمون الطعام على حبه ﴿
And they give food in spite of love for it (76:8)
In the Sahih, there is a Hadith which states, “The best charity is that which you give while you are healthy, covetous, hoping for wealth and fearing poverty.”
(Tafsir Ibn Kathir)
Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allah, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives zakah; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous.
Never will you attain the good [reward] until you spend [in the way of Allah ] from that which you love. And whatever you spend - indeed, Allah is Knowing of it.
