5 Benefits of Giving Charity
1 - We will build bridges with poor people and get to know them personally.
Poor people are virtuous. The Messenger (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) said, what means, “I saw Paradise and most of its people were the poor (of this life).” Bukhari
2 – We will thus appreciate our own blessings a lot more.
The Prophet (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) said, what means, “Look to those who have less than you, and do not look to those who have more. This is more appropriate so that you do not overlook (or undervalue) the blessings of Allaah that you have.” Bukhari
3 – It breaks down social and economic barriars between people.
By distributing your food with others through community services, you as a person do not actually see the poor person, meet him, build a relationship, or do much about the existing barriers between the people. In fact, you may be further fostering the existence of social and economic classes that keep people apart, by losing this great opportunity to make a needed change.
4 – It distances the person from arrogance.
Since arrogance is so dangerous and counter-productive to the person, giving charity when practiced properly helps a person overcome and/or remain distant from all manifestations of arrogance.
5 – You will learn about their problems and be able to help them with things that are easy for you.
Delivering your own charity to a poor family and taking a moment to learn about their lives may give you some insight into certain problems they are facing that might be very easy for you to solve!
