Umm Sulaym appeals to all visitors to please spare a minute or two and read this important message: I’m sure nobody’s ignorant to what’s happening in East Africa. QadrAllahu wa-mashaa-a-fa-‘al. They are a test for us and we’re a test for them. All of us can donate inshaa’Allah. Like I always say, all of us can donate our time/money/smiles when things are going good for us. The real defining factor of our Eeman is when we donate all these when we are in need of these the most. Allah SWT doesn’t need us. We need His Mercy. Wish I could go there physically but the least we can do by our hands is donate and our hearts is feel their pain & make duaa.
- Fear the time when no compensations will be accepted: “O you who believe! Spend of that with which We have provided for you, before a Day comes when there will be no bargaining, nor friendship, nor intercession. And it is the disbelievers who are the Dzaalimoon (wrongdoers)” [al-Baqarah 2:254]
- Multiplication of one’s reward:“The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allaah, is as the likeness of a grain (of corn); it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. Allaah gives manifold increase to whom He wills. And Allaah is All-Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower. Those who spend their wealth in the Cause of Allaah, and do not follow up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or with injury, their reward is with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve” [al-Baqarah 2:261-262]
- Warning to those who Withhold (imagine the most Obedient of Creations making duaa’ against you!):It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There is no day on which the people get up but two angels come down and one of them says, ‘O Allaah, give in compensation to the one who spends (in charity),’ and the other says, ‘O Allaah, destroy the one who withholds.’” [Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1374; Muslim, 1010]
