What is Lillah?
Lillah meaning ‘for Allah’, comprises any form of charity given in the cause of Allah on a pure voluntary basis. This charitable giving is over and above the Zakaat that one is liable for.
For instance, many charitable organisations collect Lillah for Relief Aid, Wells, Masjid and Madresa running costs. These contributions are made through the goodwill of Muslims who give solely for the pleasure of Allah. Zakaat can only be spent directly on the poor (money in hand) and not on projects such as construction whereas Lillah can be utilised in constructing Masajid, digging wells in areas of drought and other charity projects Zakaat money cannot be used for such projects.
Please donate ‘Lillah’ generously for such projects.
What is Zakaat?
One of the most important principles of Islam is that all things belong to God, and that wealth is therefore held by human beings in trust.
The word Zakaat means both ‘purification’ and ‘growth’. Our possessions are purified by setting aside a proportion for those in need, and, like the pruning of plants, this cutting back balances and encourages new growth.
Zakaat is the amount of money that every adult, mentally stable, free, and financially able Muslim, male and female, has to pay to support specific categories people.
This category of people is defined in surah at-Taubah (9) verse 60: “The alms are only for the poor and the needy, and those who collect them, and those whose hearts are to be reconciled, and to free the captives and the debtors, and for the cause of Allah, and (for) the wayfarers; a duty imposed by Allah. Allah is knower, Wise.” (The Holy Qur’an 9:60).
Please donate ‘Lillah’ generously for such projects. READ MORE HERE
What is Sadaqah?
Sadaqah is an optional and extra charity may be given any time in addition to Zakaat. Muslims are encouraged by Allah, in the Holy Quran, to make these voluntary contributions to help the needy and the poor for other social and welfare purposes at any time of the year.
“Take Sadaqa from their wealth to purify and cleanse them and pray for them. Your prayers bring relief to them.” (9:103)
Allah Almighty says, “If you conceal it, and give to the poor, that is better for you.” (2:271)
