In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Dear noble brothers, Zakat:

﴾Take Sadaqah (alms) from their wealth in order to purify them and sanctify them with it,﴿ 

[At-Taubah, 103]

Allah is saying to you: This Zakat purifies and sanctifies you, but what does it purify? It purifies the rich person from stinginess. In fact, stinginess is like a fatal disease, and by Allah, I am not exaggerating, for stinginess is a malicious disease that inflicts man and turns him into a fool who lives as a poor man and dies as a rich one.

Dear noble brothers,

﴾Take Sadaqah (alms) from their wealth in order to purify them and sanctify them with it,﴿ 

[At-Taubah, 103]

Zakat purifies the rich man from stinginess, the poor man from hatred and money from the rights of others in it:

﴾ And sanctify them with it,﴿ 

Zakat inspires the rich man's self when he sees the smile on the hearts of those he helps, soothes and consoles. Also, it purifies the poor man's self when he sees the society taking care of him. Furthermore, it purifies the money from the rights of others in it. Hence, zakat thrives money, the poor man's self and the rich man's self . This is Zakat: 

﴾Take Sadaqah (alms) from their wealth in order to purify them and sanctify them with it,﴿ 

[At-Taubah, 103]

 

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of Creations
