Friday Sermon 18 August 1995
Allah Almighty states in praise of those offering financial contributions that they are those who recite ['The Holy Quran'] and establish the daily prayers. That when they spend something they do so to gain God's pleasure and they find their dealing fruitful more than any others and their expenditure is never a cause of loss. Allah Almighty rewards them in this very world manifold and abundantly. Some people expend by nature but stop whenever they face any difficulty whereas those who do so for the sake of God they spend even if they lack the means and even though they relish wealth. In Sura al-Rad [The Thunder] instead of their Recitation of the Signs the subject of the patience of such people in search of their Lord is mention even before mention is made of their establishing prayers and it mentions such people attaining the lofty house. It reveals that it is unimportant whether they receive any reward in this world. The mention of patience in the beginning of the verse also point to this. Certain traditions of the Prophet admonish against miserliness and praise spending in the cause of Allah. We shall await the quick and fast fulfillment of these Ahadith and these Quranic statements. The financial demands are increasing the more the Community spreads. So in the light of these verse the Community should increase in financial contributions as well and request Allah Almighty that He is to grant us 'The House' anyhow but that He should grant the increase in reward in fulfillment of His promise in this world as well. We are to ask of no one and submit before Him alone. The eighth annual Ijtema of Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya Canada begins today. I appeal to the friends to pray for the success of this Ijtema in every way. The text http://www.alislam.org/urdu/sermon/FST19950818-UR.pdf © The Tahir Archive / MTA International, 2015.
