40 Reasons why Charity should Be SECOND NATURE to all Muslims

2.110 And be steadfast in prayer and regular in charity: And whatever
good ye send forth for your souls before you, ye shall find it with
Allah. for Allah sees Well all that ye do.

2.177 It is not righteousness that ye turn your faces towards East or
West; but it is righteousness- to believe in Allah and the Last Day,
and the Angels, and the Book, and the Messengers; to spend of your
substance, out of love for Him, for your kin, for orphans, for the
needy, for the wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of
slaves; to be steadfast in prayer, and give Zakat (regular charity);
to fulfill the contracts which ye have made; and to be firm and
patient, in pain (or suffering) and adversity, and throughout all
periods of panic. Such are the people of truth, the God fearing.

2.215 They ask thee what they should spend (In charity). Say:
Whatever wealth ye spend that is good, is for parents and kindred and
orphans and those in want and for wayfarers. And whatever ye do that
is good, -Allah knoweth it well.

2.263 Kind words and the covering of faults are better than charity
followed by injury. Allah is free of all wants, and He is Most-

2.264 O ye who believe! cancel not your charity by reminders of your
generosity or by injury,- like those who spend their wealth to be
seen of men, but believe neither in Allah nor in the Last Day. They
are in parable like a hard, barren rock, on which is a little soil:
on it falls heavy rain, which leaves it (just) a bare stone. They
will be able to do nothing with aught they have earned. And Allah
guideth not those who reject faith.

2.270 And whatever ye spend in charity or whatever vow ye make, be
sure Allah knows it all. But the wrong-doers have no helpers.

2.271 If ye disclose (acts of) charity, even so it is well, but if ye
conceal them, and make them reach those (really) in need, that is
best for you: It will remove from you some of your (stains of) evil.
And Allah is well acquainted with what ye do.

2.273 (Charity is) for those in need, who, in Allah's cause are
restricted (from travel), and cannot move about in the land, seeking
(for trade or work): the ignorant man thinks, because of their
modesty, that they are free from want. Thou shalt know them by their
(unfailing) mark: They beg not importunately from all the sundry. And
whatever of good ye give, be assured Allah knoweth it well.

2.274 Those who (in charity) spend of their goods by night and by
day, in secret and in public, have their reward with their Lord: on
them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

2.276 Allah will deprive usury of all blessing, but will give
increase for deeds of charity: For He loveth not any ungrateful and

2.277 Those who believe, and do deeds of righteousness, and establish
regular prayers and regular charity, will have their reward with
their Lord: On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

2.280 If the debtor is in a difficulty, grant him time till it is
easy for him to repay. But if ye remit it by way of charity, that is
best for you if ye only knew.

4.77 Hast thou not turned thy though to those who were told to hold
back their hands (from fight) but establish regular prayers and spend
in Zakat (regular charity)? When (at length) the order for fighting
was issued to them, behold! a section of them feared men as - or even
more than - they should have feared Allah. They said: "Our Lord! Why
hast Thou ordered us to fight? Wouldst Thou not grant us respite to
our (natural) term, near (enough)?" Say: "Short is the enjoyment of
this world: the Hereafter is the best for those who do right: Never
will ye be dealt with unjustly in the very least!

4.114 In most of their secret talks there is no good: But if one
exhorts to a deed of charity or goodness or conciliation between
people, (secrecy is permissible): To him who does this, seeking the
good pleasure of Allah, We shall soon give a reward of the highest

4.162 But those among them who are well-grounded in knowledge, and
the believers, believe in what hath been revealed to thee and what
was revealed before thee: And (especially) those who establish
regular prayer and pay Zakat (regular charity) and believe in Allah
and in the Last Day: To them shall We soon give a great reward.

5.12 Allah did aforetime take a covenant from the Children of Israel,
and We appointed twelve chieftains among them. And Allah said: "I am
with you: if ye (but) establish regular prayers, give Zakat (regular
charity), believe in my messengers, honor and assist them, and loan
to Allah a beautiful loan, verily I will wipe out from you your
evils, and admit you to Gardens with rivers flowing beneath; but if
any of you, after this, resisteth faith, he hath truly wandered from
the path or rectitude."

5.45 We ordained therein for them: "Life for life, eye for eye, nose
or nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal."
But if any one remits the retaliation by way of charity, it is an act
of atonement for himself. And if any fail to judge by (the light of)
what Allah hath revealed, they are wrong-doers.

5.55 Your (real) friends are (no less than) Allah, His Messenger, and
the (fellowship of) believers,- those who establish regular prayers
and regular charity, and they bow down humbly (in worship).

9.75 Amongst them are men who made a covenant with Allah, that if He
bestowed on them of His bounty, they would give (largely) in charity,
and be truly amongst those who are righteous.

9.79 Those who slander such of the believers as give themselves
freely to (deeds of) charity, as well as such as can find nothing to
give except the fruits of their labor,- and throw ridicule on them,-
Allah will throw back their ridicule on them: and they shall have a
grievous chastisement.

9.104 Know they not that Allah doth accept repentance from His
votaries and receives their gifts of charity, and that Allah is
verily He, the Oft-Returning, Most Merciful?

12.88 Then, when they came (back) into (Joseph's) presence they
said: "O exalted one! distress has seized us and our family: we have
(now) brought but scanty capital: so pay us full measure, (we pray
thee), and treat it as charity to us: for Allah doth reward the

14.31 Speak to my servants who have believed, that they may establish
regular prayers, and spend (in charity) out of the sustenance We have
given them, secretly and openly, before the coming of a Day in which
there will be neither mutual bargaining nor befriending.

19.31 "And He hath made me blessed wheresoever I be, and hath
enjoined on me Prayer and Charity as long as I live;

19.55 He used to enjoin on his people prayer and charity, and he was
most acceptable in the sight of his Lord.

22.35 To those whose hearts when Allah is mentioned, are filled with
fear, who show patient perseverance over their afflictions, keep up
regular prayer, and spend (in charity) out of what We have bestowed
upon them.

23.60 And those who dispense their charity with their hearts full of
fear, because they will return to their Lord."
