Give Little, but Give Often

‘Do not show lethargy or negligence in giving alms and charity, until your last breath.’ (Bukhari)

In Islam, ‘Sadaqah’ is voluntary charity, given for the pleasure of Allah (SWT) without expecting anything in return. We know through numerous examples from the life of the Prophet (PBUH) that he gave freely to anyone in need. He was described as being ‘more generous than the blowing wind.’ (Bukhari). His generosity was compared to the wind because of its sustained blowing, which is a mercy that touches all in its path, indicating that the Prophet’s (PBUH) generosity was all-encompassing.

Our Prophet (PBUH) would give charity regularly and he advised us to do the same. We also know that in Islam, the best acts are those which are performed consistently. The Prophet (PBUH) said:

‘Take up good deeds only as much as you are able, for the best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are few.’ (Ibn Majah)
Giving regularly (by setting up a monthly debit order, for example), even if the amount is small, has multiple benefits. Here are some of them.

Regular Giving Helps us feel Empowered, Connected and Happier

Studies show that giving helps us feel socially connected and can actually improve our health. In addition, we feel empowered by seeing the impact of our giving and a recurring donation is a great way to maximise our impact. Giving also makes us happier and more grateful for what we have.

Regular Giving is Convenient for Budgeting

It’s also more convenient because it helps us budget for this amount monthly. And, we do not have to worry about the task of processing the payment each month. It helps us spread the financial impact of our contribution over a whole year, reducing the bigger, one-off payment which may negatively impact our budgets at the time. Spreading the contribution just makes it more manageable.

Regular Giving Spreads Goodness

Giving is contagious. When we give regularly and happily, we encourage others who see us do this, to do the same. We also set an example for our children to follow. This will help them grow into kind and compassionate adults.

Regular Giving Helps Charity Organisations

Consistent giving is also good for the charities that we support. It helps them with their budgets and planning and saves them time and money on fundraising. So, our monthly donation has multiple benefits for the organisations and their recipients.

Donate Regularly to Akhuwat and Earn Multiple Rewards

‘The most beloved of deeds to Allah are those that are most consistent, even if it is small.’ (Bukhari)

Do you want to make your regular charity giving even better? Donating to Akhuwat, will attract rewards, benefit our recipients and power up your contribution. Yes, your Sadaqah or Zakat will become exponentially rewarding in the long term too! Here’s how…

We use your donations to grant small interest-free loans to poor people who cannot access loans through regular financial institutions or banks. When these loans are repaid, they are reinvested into our fund pool and loaned out again to new borrowers. This process is repeated, again and again. So, your initial contribution will be helping several people and you will earn multiple rewards for your one-off donation. To learn more about Akhuwat Islamic Microfinance click here.
