‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)
(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
فَـَٔاتِ ذَا ٱلْقُرْبَىٰ حَقَّهُۥ وَٱلْمِسْكِينَ وَٱبْنَ ٱلسَّبِيلِ ذَٰلِكَ خَيْرٌ لِّلَّذِينَ يُرِيدُونَ وَجْهَ ٱللَّهِ وَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُفْلِحُونَ 38 وَمَآ ءَاتَيْتُم مِّن رِّبًا لِّيَرْبُوَا۟ فِىٓ أَمْوَٰلِ ٱلنَّاسِ فَلَا يَرْبُوا۟ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ وَمَآ ءَاتَيْتُم مِّن زَكَوٰةٍ تُرِيدُونَ وَجْهَ ٱللَّهِ فَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُضْعِفُونَ 39
|38. So give to the kinsman his due, and to the needy, and to the wayfarer. That is best for those who seek Allah’s Countenance. And such are they who are successful.
39. And that which ye give in usury in order that it may increase on (other) people’s property hath no increase with Allah; and that which ye give in charity, seeking Allah’s Countenance, hath increase manifold.
|38. Fa-‘aati zal-qurbaa haqqahuu wal-miskiina wabnas-sabiil. Zaalika khayrul-lillaziina yuriiduuna WajhAllaahi wa ‘ulaaa-‘ika humul-Muflihuun.
39. Wa maaa ‘aataytum-mir-Ribal-liyarbuwa fiii ‘amwaalin-naasi falaa yarbuu ‘indAllaah. Wa maaa ‘aataytum-min Zakaatin- turiiduuna WajhAllaahi fa-‘ulaaa-‘ika humul-muz-‘ifuun.
It was proved in the previous verses that the mankind bows naturally toward The Real God (Allaah Almighty), his mind understands by birth that good works are good and evil deeds are bad. As though, his natural inclination is towards “following the prescribed Law of Allaah Almighty”.
After that, Allaah Almighty commands to His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): Follow Allaah Almighty and His Law unhesitatingly, and keep in obtaining His Pleasure!
Then it is commanded: Give the relatives their right. The relative who is as much closer than others, so much more right he deserves than others. Provide financial help to them, and usually those who are needy and who are travelers. It is the best way of dwelling in the world for the people who desire the Countenance of Allaah Almighty, because love of wealth throws away to the mankind from the Straight Path. He wishes that his wealth should increase more and more.
Therefore, it is commanded: Which wealth will be spent only for earning worldly benefits, will not be profitable for you with Allaah Almighty. However those who will spend their wealth with pure intention for the pleasure of Allaah Almighty; they will find its benefits with Him. Earning by unlawful means, usury and interest, will not be useful with Allaah Almighty. If you will pay the poor-due, charity and spend according to His Commandment, then it will increase with Him manifold.
