Sadaqa for Allah’s sake will become a mountain

November 6, 2011

Doing something in Islam “for the sake of Allah,” “in the path of Allah,” or “in the way of Allah” often connotes doing it for jihad.  Spending zakat (Islam’s wealth tax) or sadaqa (voluntary giving) for the sake of Allah implies funding jihad.  Even “mainstream” Islamic charities in the West avoid such language because of its disturbing undertone.

But that doesn’t seem to have impeded the boys at Salafi Audio from spreading their message for sadaqa for the sake of Allah.  This recording refers to Ramadan, which took place in August, but was uploaded to the web by an entity called “LearnToReadTheKuran” in October.  In this less than two minute clip, the speaker says that Allah will turn donated sadaqa, no matter how small its size, into the size of a mountain:

Under Islamic law, sadaqa is distributed to the same eight groups of people who receive zakat, one of which is the mujahideen.
