And when Abraham said: “My Lord! Show me how You give life to the dead”. (Allah) said: “Do you not believe”? He (Abraham) said: “Yes (I believe), but for my heart to be at rest”. (He said): “Then take four of the birds, then cause them to incline towards you (then cut them into pieces) and then place on every hill a part of them, then call them, they will rush to you; and know that Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise”.
The parable of those who spend their wealth in Allah’s Way is as the parable of a grain; it grows seven ears, and in each ear there are a hundred grains. Allah gives manifold increase to whom He wills. And Allah is All-Embracing, All-Knowing.
Those spend their wealth in the Way of Allah, and do not follow up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or injury, their reward is with their Lord. There is no fear on them and they shall not grieve.
Kind speech and forgiveness is better than charity followed by injury, and Allah is Self-Sufficient, and He is Most-Gentle.
O you who believe (who are âmenû)! Do not render vain your charity (sadaqah) by reminders of your generosity or by injury, like him who spends his property to be seen of men and does not believe in Allah and the Last Day. His likeness is the likeness of a smooth rock on which is a little dust, then a heavy rain falls upon it, so it leaves it bare. They are not able to do anything with what they have earned. And Allah does not guide the disbelieving people.
