5th January 2018 – Financial Sacrifice and Waqfe Jadid 2018
After reciting the Tashahhud, Ta’wwuz, and Surah Al-Fatihah, Khalifatul Masih V (aba) stated: In the Holy Qur’an, we find that at numerous places, a believers’ attention has been drawn towards financial sacrifice. At one place, Allah the Almighty states, ‘wa maa tunfiqoo min khairin fa li-anfusikum’ i.e. ‘And whatever of wealth you spend, it is for yourselves’. (2:273) Alongside this, a trait of the believers has also been mentioned that they only spend in order to attain the pleasure of Allah. [The Holy Qur’an] states that, ‘wa maa tunfiqoona illabtighaa’a wajhillah’ i.e. ‘…you spend not but to seek the favour of Allah’. Thus, how fortunate are those people who spend their wealth in the way of God the Almighty with this approach. Allah the Almighty does not require any wealth for Himself. The very meaning of spending for His sake is to spend for the betterment of His creation and for the pre-eminence of His religion. While referring to Allah the Almighty, the Holy Prophet (sa) said (in qudsi Hadith) that, ‘O son of Adam! Deposit your wealth with me and rest at peace for it is neither in danger of being consumed by fire nor of being drowned in water, nor of being stolen by a thief. I shall return in full, the treasure that you deposit with me, on the Day when you will be in most need of it.’ This means that whatever we spend in the cause of Allah, is deposited into our own account. And when we will need of it, Allah the Almighty will return it.
