Question

 

When one gives sadaqah does his money increase?

 

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer

 

Saaiduna Abu HurariahRadiallahu Anhu narrates that the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam has said: “Sadaqah does not cause a decrease in wealth and to forgive an offender enhances the honour of the forgiver; whoever humbles himself for the pleasure of Allah (SWA), he is exalted by Allah (SWA).” (Mishkaatul Masaabeeh P.167 V.1)

 

Abu Salamah Radiallahu Anhu has also reported that the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam has said; “Sadaqah does not reduce wealth, so do give sadaqah.” Sadaqah does not reduce wealth means that the return or thawab promptly comes from Allah (SWA). (Fadhail Sadaqaat P.74)

 

From the aforementioned hadith we can deduce that even though a person’s wealth in reality decrease, however, the blessings and reward of sadaqah will enable you’re remaining wealth to remain for longer. (Mazahirul Haqq P.570 V.2)
