ALLAH loves (1) the kind good doers

Allah is the Kind and He Loves the kind who spends his wealth in obedience of Allah. 

Allah is the Good Doers and He Loves the good doers. 

Allah is the Beneficent, and He loves the beneficent

———————————————–

Charity is not just recommended by Islam, it is required of every financially stable Muslim. 

Giving charity to those who deserve it is part of Muslim character and one of the Five Pillars of Islamic practice. 

Islam encourages the sharing of wealth with others and helps people to stand on their own and become productive members of the society.

The whole concept of wealth is considered in Islam as a gift from Allah.  Allah, who provided it to the person, made a portion of it for the poor, so the poor have a right over one’s wealth.

The verse 2:195 means:

Spend your wealth for the cause of Allah,

Spend for the sake of Allah

Spend in the way of Allah

Spend your wealth in obedience of Allah

And be not cast by your own hands to ruin

Cast not your own hands, yourselves into destruction, by withholding your money

Do not refrain from giving in His cause lest you ruin yourselves.

Do not be the cause of your own ruin

Do not despair of Allah’s mercy lest you ruin yourselves

And do good by spending in the cause of Allah

Have a good opinion about Allah;

Be good in your spending in the way of Allah.

Be virtuous, by spending etc.;

Allah loves the beneficent who spend in His cause

Allah loves the virtuous, that is, He rewards them.

Allah is the Kind and He loves the kind.
