Giving in the Way of Allah

Giving in the Way of Allah (The Holy Quran) Say to my servants who believe that they should observe Prayer, and spend out what We have given them, secretly and openly, before there comes a day where there will be neither bargaining nor friendship. (14:32). So give to the kinsman his due and to the needy and to the wayfarer. That is best for those who seek the favour of Allah, and it is they who will prosper. And spend in the cause of Allah, and cast not yourselves into ruin with your own hands, and do good; surely, Allah loves those who do good. (2:196). If you give alms openly, it is well and good; but if you hide them and give them to the poor, it is better for you, and He will remit from you many of your evil deeds. And Allah is aware of what you do. (2:272). . . . And they ask thee what they should spend. Say,’spend what you can spare.’ . . . (2:220). They ask thee what they shall spend. Say, ‘Whatever of good and abundant wealth should be for parents and near relatives and orphans and the needy and the wayfarer. And whatever good you do, surely Allah knows it perfectly well.’ (2:216). You cannot attain to righteousness unless you spend out of that which you love. And whatever you spend, Allah surely knows it well. (3:93). Those who spend their wealth by night and day, secretly and openly, have their reward with their Lord; on them shall come no fear, nor shall they grieve. (2:275). If you lend to Allah a goodly loan, He will multiply it for you, and will forgive you; and Allah is most Appreciating, Forbearing. (64:18). Then as for him who gives for the cause of Allah and is righteous, and testifies to the truth of what is right We will provide for him every f acuity for good. (92:6-8). Who gives his wealth that he may be purified, and not because he owes a favour to anyone, which is to be repaid. But solely to seek the pleasure of his Lord, the Most High. (92:19-21).

Its first issue was published in 1902 and it has been continuously published since. It bears the distinction that it was initiated under the direction of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, the Promised Messiah himself. During more than eighty-one years the message of Islam has been conveyed through this magazine to hundreds of readers and many fortunate persons have recognised the truth of Islam and accepted it through studying it. The articles published in it deal not only with the doctrines and teachings of Islam but also set forth a comparative appreciation of the teachings of other faiths. One of its outstanding features is the refutations of the criticism of Islamic teachings by orientalists and non-muslim scholars. It also presents solutions in the light of Islamic teachings of the problems with which the Islamic world is from time to time confronted. A study of this magazine is indispensable for the appreciation of the doctrines of the Ahmadiyya Movement and the teachings of its holy Founder.
