“Charity does not decrease wealth, no one forgives another except that Allah increases his honor, and no one humbles himself for the sake of Allah except that Allah raises his status.”Sahih Muslim 2588
With it being the International Day of Charity on the 5th of september, it got me thinking...
Every time I give something to charity, small amounts or big, I have always noticed that I get something back in return. For example, when I gave sadqah last year, I immediately got some money returned to me that I did not even realize was owed to me. This does not stop here. I also feel protected. The other day I gave in charity and the same week I accidentally left the iron on in my child's room. The next morning I see a huge burn on the carpet, but alhamdulilah nothing set on fire and my child was completely safe.
I honestly believe it is Allah protecting me especially when giving charity.
Does anyone else have any stories about when they give in charity, what they get back?
