Muslims have been urged to spend their wealth in the course of Allah, especially, not just in the holy month of Ramadan but also after the Muslim’s fasting period.
The Chief Imam of Aiyegbami Central Mosque, Fadilat Sheikh Hamzat Abdulraheem Ariyibi made the call while speaking as the guest lecture at the Ramadan lecture organised by Salman Shagaya Foundation, in Ilorin.
He stressed that Muslims should spend their wealth on charity, hajj, lesser hajj, one’s parents and children, widows, orphans and the needy to please Allah. He noted that spending in the course of Allah would attract reward and bring succor to individuals and society in general.
He said, “The Qur’an says, whoever gives in the name of Allah, his wealth will be multiplied 10 times, so Muslims please give out charity to reap the bounties of Allah.”
He, therefore, called on the Shagayas and several other philanthropists amongst Muslims to continue empowering the less fortunate people, feeding the orphans and the vulnerable in society saying, “It is a major act of worship that attracts the mercy of Allah, and because of that, Allah will continue to protect you from all forms of evil.
