Uswatun Hasanah – The Act of Giving

  • However, in our attempt to fulfil the religious call to be generous to others, we must always remember to do so with justice. In giving help or extending assistance to those in need, let us not overlook our main responsibility, that is our own family members.

     

     

  • We must prioritise them and ensure that they are on the receiving end of our kindness and generosity, before anyone else. Let us not be too eager to extend help to others when our own family members are in need.

     

     

  • Being generous and contributing is not limited to giving money to those in need, but it also includes anything beneficial that can also bring individuals closer to Allah. This is also considered as a charity.
