What charity stands for Muslims in Islam?

Oct 6th 2014 at 9:30 PM

Some people rely only on charity. They are helpless because of personal problems, political reasons and natural causes like flood, earthquake and cyclone. They look at wealthy, rich and able citizens of the world to get food, clothing, medicines and shelter.

It is the duty of every able person to give funds to charity organizations that help the poor and downtrodden. Muslims take call of giving charity in Islam as their duty. They obey it as the duty to the Almighty. They donate generously and this is evident from the Muslim organization doing charity work all over the world.

What these organizations do?

They provide food, clothing, medicines and shelter to the poor and downtrodden. The organizations work in the area affected by natural calamities, they visit cities facing political upheaval and they go to people that are ignorant about cleanliness and hygiene. Objective of these organizations is to make world a safe place to live and they are doing a commendable job.

They need funds

For doing development work like opening schools, providing vocational training to widows and giving medicines to weak and ailing persons, they need funds and funds come from generous citizens. These organizations ask everyone to give funds for charity work and they get funds from Muslims living in every corner of the world.

Advantages of giving charity

It has two advantages. First, it gives a feeling of togetherness and supports the cause of brotherhood. Second advantage is it prevents Muslims from world sins. When you give money to help others, you help Allah and you help Allah, you get blessing of the Almighty and the blessing frees you from your sins.

Giving charity in Islam is taken as a religious duty by Muslims because charity is done to help Allah as the Almighty wants to help the poor and downtrodden. They beg for help and they believe that the Almighty would send some to their help and they are right in believing in the power of the Almighty as Muslims give funds for charity to serve the Almighty.

How charity organizations collect funds?

Funds are collected online. Payments are received online and the donors get receipts of their payments. Funds are also collected in cash. Charity organizations have executives that collect cash from Muslims and give receipts against cash collection. It is a long chain with charity organizations at one end and donors at other.
