So now are they going to let you know giving donations in this blessed month of Ramadan? Is it better to give all at once or better to give it daily?

00:00:11 --> 00:00:51

Yeah, let's find out how Haman hamdulillah salatu salam ala Rasulillah see it depends if the person is worried that if he doesn't give all at once, he might forget then we say no give it all at once. However, if the person can give it on a daily basis, even if it is small, and it sums up to the entire amount that he was planning or she was planning, then definitely it is better to give it on a daily basis. What about automating it you will come to the automated first, but let me just clarify

00:00:51 --> 00:01:24

this actually giving sadaqa on a daily basis can be seen even as a sunnah. Subhanallah Yeah, as a missing sunnah, from our practice, why is this? Some scholars said that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or they use the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he says that every single day two angels come down and one of them is making dua for those who give and one of them is making dua against those who do not give. They said from this, we understand that on a daily basis is better

00:01:24 --> 00:01:37

that you give us sadaqa on a daily basis. And that was that was the practice of so many of the early early scholars. They were giving

00:01:38 --> 00:02:02

Shane early, he was giving sadaqa on a daily basis every day he was giving Edina. It was reported number of scholars they were giving sadaqa every single day. Salahuddin in a UB it was reported that he was giving every single every Jama 100 dinner or a big amount like this.

00:02:03 --> 00:02:37

One of the in fact one of the tablet in Herbalife he one time he gave a sadaqa as an onion. And then one of his friends he told him you are cutting an onion. He said yeah, I'm giving it as a sidecar. He said but yeah, but it is points your the the the smell of your clothes. He said I will never see the from giving sadaqa on a daily basis after I heard oke Babina Ahmed, who was a companion who reported the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I will not reveal in the sadaqa to

00:02:37 --> 00:03:09

Matera, that the person will be under the shade of his sadaqa on the Day of Resurrection. So, this is definitely far better to give it on a daily basis. Why there is another element of this because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says Hiral Armelle at one hour and called the best of these that is the most consistent even if it is a small and it shall be Allah Allah Allah said that the actions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam were Dima Dima means if he does something, he will continuously do it.

00:03:09 --> 00:03:25

And Allah, Allah, Allah doesn't want us to do something and then abstain from it as if we are in no need for it. So there is another element. There is also another element behind sadaqa on a daily basis, which is what the the action of the heart.

00:03:26 --> 00:04:01

Yeah, the action of the heart, because every day, it is not the money that is coming towards me. I'm William sadhaka, 10, tapa Hyrum, that appear the purification of the heart, the action of the heart, which is maybe a very important element of the sadaqa. So that you are doing it on a daily basis. And that's, that that brings. That brings us to the question, your question regarding automated sadaqa. Because automated sadaqa, you don't feel that you are paying it. So it is good from one

00:04:01 --> 00:04:08

perspective, but you lose the action of your heart. Yeah. So in conclusion, if you can give

00:04:09 --> 00:04:45

a daily sadaqa, then that is definitely better from all angles. If you can't, yeah, then what I suggest is that, put a target for you daily, and try to give it on a daily basis. If you miss a day, the second day, don't go give just for that today, give for the day and the day you missed it as well. So now you know that if you do shaytan will not play around and will tell you that Oh hello, just give that today. No, it will accumulate this is what I recommend was come to us. Yeah. And he

00:04:45 --> 00:05:00

gave it as a as a lump sum. But here I would like to say something that sometimes if there is a dire need, yeah. Then give as much as you can even if you

00:05:00 --> 00:05:44

Give it as a as a lump sum. For example, if you came to a situation where they are raising funds for maybe people who are dying. Yeah. And you want to give a lump sum. Yeah, because of the dire need at that moment, then definitely give that and the general ruling is, first of all, with increases that we're maximizing, maximizing the reward of the sadaqa is the, the the need, okay, of the recipient, number one, and then your situation second, okay. A combination will shows us when is the best, but

00:05:44 --> 00:05:55

definitely the need is the main criteria to define the reward of the or to decide the reward of the sadhaka Zack Thank you
