Ahmet Sargin – Ramadan means solidarity!

As human beings we cannot be alone in this life. People need mutual support for each other. Solidarity is a normal condition of living in a society. Living with others is impossible and does not require help. That is why Islam has overpowered our material and spiritual life by dealing with it in a wide range of ways and has expressed it as a religious-moral responsibility.

The essence of help is altruism. This means sharing everything from property to love with his brother … this sharing should be an equal and fair part. Although cooperation is sometimes obligatory, as in the case of zakat and fitra, it is often completely voluntary. Although zakat is available in a certain amount, there is no limit to charity. In this way a great deal of cooperation was born among the Muslims. In addition to financial aid, Muslims are obliged to do good to others through their words and deeds and to be connected with them in a spirit of love and brotherhood. This is the condition of being a Muslim.

As human beings, we have to make a choice between the love of our products and the pleasure of Allah. It is true and true that we pass the test of life. If we give our loved ones to the poor out of our possessions only in the hope of pleasing Allah, then we will pass this test. Being a Muslim means brotherhood and sharing. In this case, the behavior of our Prophet (peace be upon him) and his companions should set an example for us.

Our religion Islam is the religion of cooperation. No other religion or thought before or after Islam has dealt with this issue as well, and has not been able to carry the perception of help and the application of this understanding as widely. Allah Almighty says the following in the Qur’an:

“Do they share in the mercy of your Lord? We distribute human sustenance in this worldly life. We have made something richer than others, so that one can work for the other. The mercy of your Lord is better than that which they have accumulated. “(Juruf, 43/32).

A Muslim who does no good without harming others with his hands and tongue is considered virtuous. “Those who believe in the unseen, perform the prayer, and spend out of what We have given them (they feed others) … Such people are on the right path and guidance from their Lord, and they are the ones who have escaped punishment and have been rewarded.” . ” (Bakkarat, 2/35)

Overcoming the temptation to amass wealth, overcoming Satan’s deceptions and stinginess mentioned in the verse and spending his wealth, which Allah has given him as a gift, grace and blessing is a great deed for a person. , In the way of goodness, as commanded by Allah and His Messenger. In this way the prayer is praised, gratitude is expressed and the consent of Allah is obtained.

We see that Allah is looking for some features with real help. In the 92nd verse of Al-Imran chapter, Allah says: “You will not reach Paradise unless you give alms from your beloved. Allah knows what you spend in the way of Allah.” (Ali Imran, 3/92).

“Is it not for men and women who give alms and do good deeds and those who lend money to Allah willingly, Allah will reward them many times over? (Hadid, 57/18)

The construction of charities such as fountains, bridges, mosques, schools, roads, hospitals and health centers from which everyone can benefit is also included in the aid made with the product. Our ancestors set an example for us in this regard; He decorated the country with mosques, social complexes, inns, baths and caravans.

The divine command of Almighty God continues: “Let there be a community among you who call people to goodness, enjoin what is right, and forbid what is wrong. They are successful; You are the best nation that has been raised for humanity; Enjoin what is right, forbid what is wrong, and believe in God. “(Ali Imran, 3/104, 110)

It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
The righteous head of state, the young man who has grown up in a clean life by serving his lord,
That the heart of the Muslim is connected with the mosque
Two people who love each other for the sake of Allah and their union or separation is for the sake of Allah.
A hero who says “I fear Allah” does not go to the lust of a beautiful and dignified woman, a man who gives so secretly that his left hand does not understand what his right hand gives.
The one who remembers Allah in solitude and sheds tears. “(Bukhari and Muslim)

My Lord, include us among those who spend the halal wealth of Allah in the way of Allah. Happy Ramadan. Happy Ramadan to you too!
