Benefits of giving to charity...

It is very true. Please try it and Insha allah you will notice the benefits.
There is a simple act you can do to ensure better life.
Brother Abdullah, gets a salary of S.Riyal 4000 per month and many debts,
says: "I thought I'm going to live like this forever... I was always afraid
that I will pass away before repaying my debts which were constantly
increasing instead of decreasing ..
It was the way marriage life goes .. and although I was comfortable with my
wife who understands our situation, debts were always making our life harder
One day I went out with guys like me whom I usually share my problems with
.... On that day one of them, gave me the advice of specifying a part of my
salary for charity ...
"I am hardly feeding myself" I answered him .. Later that night I told this
to my wife and she said "Try, may Allah help us out" .. So I decided to give
SR 300 every month as charity ..
Since then my life became much better, my debts are just disappearing, I
find money pouring on me however I turn. Believe me and take my advice,
give charity then wait and see how you will get a better life.
The Warranty that Charity gives you a better life:
It's a proof of belief as the Prophet (PBUH) said "Charity is a proof"
Cause of healing as Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) said "Heal your sick with
It shades you on Judgment day "Each person is in the shade of his charity
till people are judged", said the Prophet (PBUH)
Cools ALLAH's anger: Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) said: "Giving in secret cools
Love of Allah: as (PBUH) said "The most loved actions to Allah are:
Happiness you give to a Muslim, or Sadness you take way, or Debt you help
him with, or Hunger you put away, supporting my brother in one of his needs
is better for me than staying in this mosque for a month . "
Opens doors of Mercy: The Prophet (PBUH) said "Allah will have mercy on
those who are merciful, Have mercy on those on earth and you will get mercy
from him who is in heaven"
Gives Thawab even after death: "When a human dies, all his doing is over
except three: Continuous Charity, Usable science or righteous son praying
for him", Said the prophet (PBUH)
Protects you as the Prophet (PBUH) said "Good doings protect from bad
If you convince someone to give charity, you will get the same Thawab (good
deed) he is getting without affecting his, this is because you will be the
reason of him doing good. This means you may die and still someone will be
there to pay charity on your behalf (Continuous Charity).
A SINGLE ACT OF GENEROSITY IS LIKE A PEBBLE THROWN INTO A POND THAT CREATES WIDENING RIPPLES (WAVE) OF GOODNESS FOR OURSELVES AND OTHERS
