Charity; Reasons for Bliss and Increasing Rizki

Al-Hamdulillah, praise be to Allah, Lord of the universe. Shalawat and greetings should be blessed to the Prophet Shallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam, family and friends.

Some people still think that issuing wealth in the form of zakat, infak and alms / shadaqah fi sabilillah will reduce the nominal amount of property and cause misery. This is natural, because the human nature is stingy. Additionally, the devil always scares people who will be infatuated. The goal is that they will not get the reward and kindness that becomes the means of heaven.
Allah Ta'ala berfirman,

"Satan promises you with poverty and tells you to do bad things; but Allah promises you forgiveness from Him and bounty. And Allah is All-Embracing, All-Knowing."(QS. Al-Baqarah: 268)

Ibn Katsir said of the word of Allah Ta'ala, "Satan promises (scares) you with poverty", that is to say: he scares you with anxiety so that you hold your hand, so do not infect it in the pleasure of God.
"And tell you to do bad things", that is to say: together with his prohibition against you from inflicting poverty, Satan commits you with disobedience, sinfulness, harm, and blasphemy of al-Khallaq (creator; Allah Ta'ala)."

Al-Jazairi said in interpreting "And told you to do bad things": he (the devil) invites you to do bad deeds, among them gnaw and gnaw. Therefore Allah Ta'ala warns His servants from the devil and his temptations, then announcing that the devil promises to be in anguish, meaning: scare them with poverty so they do not issue zakat and shadaqah. (On the contrary) he told them to do badly so as to bring their property in harmony and damage, as well as to throw it out for the good and common good. "

Even though the opposite. Assets issued by fi sabilillah (in the way of Allah) will bring blessings. That is to add to the goodness of the treasure and develop into many as in the word of Allah Ta'ala,

Yesah God Usury Werbi Times

"God destroys usury and nourishes alms. "(QS. Al-Baqarah: 276)

The meaning of God fertilizing alms is to multiply and develop it in the world. Whereas in the hereafter, Allah guarded it since it was issued for infaq. This safeguard is like someone guarding the seeds they planted by being noticed and nurtured until the seed becomes a big tree. Or like someone who takes care of and maintains a young foal, he feeds and he takes good care so that it becomes a big and tough horse. This means that he will get a big reward even through a small infa.

Reported by Abu Hurairah Radhiyallahu 'Anhu, The Messenger of Allah Shallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam said, Allah Ta'ala says:

nfq Oh Ibn Adam Spent عليك

"Bless me, O son of Adam, I'll give it to you"(Muttafaq 'Alaih) The meaning is that I give you a better change for you, in accordance with the word of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala,

I am أفلام I Thing Foe .

"And whatever you spend, Allah will replace it and He is the best Provider."(QS. Saba ': 39)

This Hadith is very great. It contains the command to give alms to the good and to infuse the fi sabilillah. Then it is recommended to rejoice in the stead of the mercy of Allah Ta'ala. That the alms and infaqs include the main reason for the blessings and the multiplication of rizki. While in the Hereafter, God will give in exchange for the Paradise for those who are in His path.

Infrastructure and Charity Priority
There are so many texts that explain the primacy of alms and infaq fi sabilillah. Its function, as an order for Muslims to give part of their wealth to expect a great reward from Allah Ta'ala. And indeed Allah has made infaq to Sail wa Mahrum (the beggars and the hard-working people who refrain from begging) as the special nature of the muhsinin servants of Allah. As in His word Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, "Lo! Those who ward off (evil) are in gardens and springs, and take what their Lord has given them. Lo! They were in the world those who did good; They sleep a little in the night, and in the late nights they beg for pardon (to Allah). And in their possessions there is the right to the poor who ask and the poor who have no share."(QS. Al-Dzaariyat: 15-19)

God also promises, He will give for the multiplicity of munfiqin that is greater than anything they have inflicted. This is happening in the world and hereafter. Allah Ta'ala says,

I The Always Sure God Loan Okay Faizifa From Fold كثيرة

"Who will lend to Allah a good loan (to spend his wealth in the way of Allah), then Allah will multiply the payment to him in abundance."(QS. Al-Baqarah: 245)

Alms and infaq is one of the doors of goodness. It also includes the biggest part of the form of jihad. Even all verses that speak of jihad, jihad treasures take precedence over jihad with the soul except only one place, namely QS. Al-Taubah: 111. Rasulullah Shallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam said, "Take care of the poor people with your wealth, soul and oral."(Narrated by Abu Dawud)

Infak and alms are also the most beloved charity of Allah as in a hadith, "The happiness you put into the hearts of the believers, eliminates the difficulties, pay the debt, or eliminate hunger."(Narrated by al-Baihaqi and al-Albani)

Infaq and alms can lift the position of the culprit to the highest position. The Messenger of Allah Shallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam said, "This is the world for four: the servant whom Allah has given wealth and knowledge and with him fears Allah, keeps silence, and knows the right of Allah in his wealth, this is the one who is at the highest level. . ."(HR, al-Tirmidzi)

Alms or infaq can also prevent the culprit from disaster and danger. In addition, alms can also save people who give charity from disasters and difficulties. This is like the words of the Prophet Shallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam,

Known to me People Protects Owner wrestler The bad, the pests, the calamities and the people known in this world are the people of the known in the Hereafter

"Doing good to humans avoids the perpetrators from bad death, misfortune, and destruction. And the goodman of the world will be a goodman in the hereafter."(Narrated by al-Hakim and al-Albani)

In the history of al-Tirmidhi and besides, the Prophet Shallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam said; "Surely the shadaqah completely extinguishes the wrath of Allah and avoids the bad death."
In addition, almsgiving can erase sins and mistakes and save from the adherence of God Subhanahu wa Ta'ala. This is as it is in the hadeeth of Hadith, "Guard yourself from hell fire with half a date palm."(HR, Al-Bukhari)

. . . There are so many nash-nashs that explain the virtue of alms and infil fi sabilillah.
Its function, as an order for Muslims to give part of their wealth to expect a great reward from Allah Ta'ala. . . .

There are many more virtues of alms and infaq. Not all can be mentioned in this short article. But clearly, there is no loss for those who increase alms of goodness, especially da'wah and the struggle to elevate the sentence of Allah. Of course this is with the conditions, namely: sincerity because God and hope for merit from Him alone, prioritizing the reward of the hereafter from the world, and not followed by hurting the person who was given Wallahu Ta'ala Allah.
