Sura Taghabun (64) 05/11/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 64 – Taghabun

Verse 16

“So fear Allah as much as ye can; listen and obey and spend in charity for the benefit of your own soul and those saved from the covetousness of their own souls,- they are the ones that achieve prosperity.”

Allah SWT counsels us to firstly be conscious of Him, listen to His message and observe it’s teachings. He then places specific emphasis on charity. Charity (or spending our wealth for the development of society) sensitises us to the needs of others and is beneficial to the dispenser in more than one way. Firstly it build his character, frees him from being a slave to his wealth and results in a socially stable society. Hence if we are able to overcome our miserliness, (by sharing and leaving our wealth and material comforts accessible to others) we are certain of a successful society.
