Upholding the Trust of Wealth

Wealth is an amanah (trust) from Allah, and how we use it, for good or otherwise, is of the utmost importance to our spiritual health. Those blessed with wealth should take heed from these words from the Islamic scholar Ibn Qudama al-Maqdisi:

The deluded among the wealthy are of various types. Some of them eagerly build mosques, schools, hospices, aqueducts, whatever people can see, and write their names upon them to perpetuate their memory and keep it alive after their death, while if one of them were called upon to spend a single dinar on something that did not have his name on it, it would be a burden for him...

Others protect their money, holding fast to it with the tight fist of greed, and then occupy themselves with bodily works of worship that do not cost much, like fasting, prayer, or reciting the whole Koran. They are deluded, for stinginess is deadly and has taken over their heart. They need to rid themselves of it by spending of their wealth...

There are others whose selfsihness will not let them given anything but zakat. One of them may pay out the worst property he has, or give it to those of the poor who are useful to him, vacillating between which of his ulterior motives can best be served, or as to whom he may have use for in the future or is “good for something” in particular. Another may deliver his zakat to a prominent public figure so he will consider him to be someone and later fulfill his needs. And all of this invalidates the intention, the person who does it being deluded by wanting recompense from others for worshipping Allah Most High...
