  • “The likeness of those who spend for Allah’s sake is as the likeness of a grain of corn, it grows seven ears every single ear has a hundred grains, and Allah multiplies (increases the reward of) for whom He wills, and Allah is sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower).” (Qur’an, 2:261)
  • The Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wassalam) has said: “Charity does not in any way decrease the wealth and the servant who forgives, Allah adds to his respect; and the one who shows humility, Allah elevates him in the estimation (of the people).”
    – Narrated by Imam Muslim
  • The Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wassalam) has said: “Verily the most beloved actions in the sight of Allah are those which are continuous, even though they may be little”

In 2007, Rahmat-e-Alam Foundation purchased a building located at 7045 N Western Ave to house all three divisions. Our outstanding balance is still close to 2 million dollars.

Warning against interest
Sayyiduna Jabir ibn ‘Abdullah Radhi-Allahu A’nhu reported: “Rasulullah Sullul-lahu A'lay-hi Wasul-lum cursed those who consume interest, the one who pays it, the one who writes it (contract) and the two witnesses to it (contract).” Rasulullah Sullul-lahu A'lay-hi Wasul-lum said: “They are equal (in sins).” [Muslim and others]

If anyone gives as Sadaqa the equivalent of a date from that (earning) earned honestly, for Allah accepts that which is lawful, the Lord would accept it with His Right Hand, and even if it is a date, it would foster in the Hand of the lord, as one of you fosters his colt, till it becomes bigger than a mountain. Sahih Muslim

Encouragement towards sincerity, truthfulness and correct intention
Sayyiduna Abu Darda Radhi-Allahu A’nhu reports that Rasulullah Sullul-lahu A'lay-hi Wasul- lum said: "That person who goes to his bed with the intention of waking up at night to perform salah but he was overcome by sleep till the morning, what he intended will be written for him and his sleep would be a charity for him from his Lord." [An-Nisai and Ibn Majah]
