Purifies Assets and Creates Virtues

We are in the last month of 2006. During December, our Christian friends are busy buying gifts for the love one and everyone I'm sure are busy gathering all the documents, receipts and bills for taxes purposes.

But to our Muslim friends did you remember your other obligation, to pay your zakat.

Take from their wealth alms, in order to purify them and sanctify them thereby.” Literally, zakat means ‘grow’ (in goodness) or ‘increase’, and ‘purify’ or ‘make pure’. So the act of giving zakat means purifying one’s wealth to gain Allah’s blessings and making the wealth grows in goodness. One of the most important principles of Islam is that all things belong to Allah, and that wealth is therefore held by human beings in trust. The word ‘zakat’ means both ‘purification’ and ‘growth’. Our possessions are purified by setting aside a portion thereof for those in need, and like the pruning of plants, this act balances and encourages new growth.

Zakat purifies not only the property of the contributor but also his heart from selfishness and greed. It also purifies the heart of the recipient from envy, jealousy, hatred and uneasiness and it fosters instead good-will and warm wishes for the contributors

Actually in giving zakat, your asset or wealth will not diminish at all. You will gain more in giving.
