No one has ever become poor by giving / charity does not decrease wealth
I was reading on the net and suddenly found this quote. “No one has ever become poor by giving.” Anne Frank
It reminded be of an authentic hadeeth for the prophet Mouhammad (Peace be upon him) who said "Sadaqa does not decrease wealth".
It is an important concept that should be kept in mind. When humans tend to give, they might got puzzled by the fact that charity is a cost. However, this cost will bring happiness and it does not have associated risk or collateral damage to our wealth.
We need to rethink our giving insights and be generous when giving. Winter is a good time to give. Do not only think of X-mas as the commercial giving season.
Think of a sustainable act that will bring a smile to a poor face.
Think of a sustainable move that can go viral
Think of a sustainable trigger that awaken our humane nature.
