Dear Brothers and Sisters!

Allah (swt) has addressed all humanity through the Qur’an until the Day of Judgment. He conveys to us subjects such as faith, worship, law, ethics, the stories of the prophets and prayer in the best way possible. The most important feature of the Qur’an is that it teaches us to think and act correctly.

In the first verses of Surah Al-Baqarah, Allah (swt) says: This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah. Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them.”[1]In the last part of the verse, Allah (swt) reminds us that everything we have is a blessing from Him and therefore we should spend it where He is pleased.

Allah (swt) says through a Hadith-I Qudsi,Spend in charity, O son of Adam, and I will spend on you.” Rasulullah (saw) says when interpreting this: The right hand of Allah is full and overflowing and in nothing would diminish it, by overspending day and night.[2]

As Muslims, we have no doubt that Allah (swt) will reward those who donate with multiplied rewards.

Dear Jama’ah!

“There were two brothers at the time of the Prophet (saw). One of them would come to the Prophet (saw) to learn knowledge, and the other would work (to earn their living). The working brother (one day) complained about the other one to the Messenger of Allah (saw). Our Prophet (saw) replied:Maybe you’re getting sustenance (finding a job) because of him.”[3]

From this hadith, we understand the importance of supporting scholars and projects that serve knowledge. We need such studies to protect our religion, culture and identity and to ensure the future generations, especially in countries where we live as minorities.

Dear Brothers and Sisters!

Our organization has built many mosques, complexes, training centres, kindergartens, Hafidh schools, and schools in different parts of the world with your wonderful support through the “Infaq Campaign” that the organisation has been organising for years. Again, with your support, many different projects will be built in Australia, Cologne, Hannover, South Holland, England, the Balkans, Sweden and parts of Germany. We invite everyone to participate in the good deeds that will be done within the scope of the work of these institutions that have been spent and built.

May Allah (swt) make us one of his servants who seek knowledge until the end and seek to make charity to benefit us in the hereafter. Ameen.
