“For which of My Favors do ye deny”
Allah has bestowed upon us His Bounty and Mercy without an account. He has given us gifts beyond compare; sight with which to see the beauty of His Majesty; touch so we could “feel and taste” His limitless bounty; a keen sense of hearing so we can communicate with and learn from one another; intelligence with which to process thought to enable creative thinking and advancement between ourselves. We take much of these for granted as they have been given without taking us to task.
Along the same lines, by His grace, we have been favored with a mosque for our growing community. Our mosque is not only a place of congregational prayer on Fridays. It is also an oasis of tranquility where one should find solace from the agitation of everyday life. It is also a place of learning and community participation as well, for the young and old, both men and women. Are we to take this for granted as well? Should we expect the mosque to operate on the generosity of some but not on others?
Inshallah, we can, collectively and effectively as a community, ensure the operation and running of the mosque by our show of commitment through recurring pledged contributions. If every individual were to commit monthly to even a small amount through “automated charge” via their credit cards, we could effectively avoid the agony of wondering how our next light or water bill is to be paid. Needless to say, it would also avoid having one of the executive committee members pleading for funds at the end of Jumu’ah.
Mashallah, we have about 300 of us who come to the mosque every Friday. If each of us were to contribute a minimum of $30 monthly, it would mean a total of $9000.00 per month toward the maintenance of our mosque. Allah SWT has said in the Quran that it is in the consistency that he is looking for in our deeds. As some of us may have had the experience, it would also ensure that we would avoid the chance of not having cash in hand at Jumu’a to give for Allah’s sake!
There is no loss but only reward for those who give in charity. “Giving away something in charity does not cause any decrease in a person’s wealth, but increases it instead. The person who adopts humility for the sake of Allah is exalted in ranks by Him”.
