Invest the Best to Get the Best in Return

It is hoped that the ummah will benefit from this effort through greater financial empowerment, enabling the community to live in security and dignity and fulfill their religious and moral obligations towards charitable activities)
When you are looking at the high returns on your investment you should know that you have to invest the best at the best available opportunity. We are in the second Ashra of Ramadan which is about ‘forgiving’. Allah SWT in this Ashra will forgive our previous sins, mistakes and any wrongdoings but only in return of some extra effort if we make in Ramadan.
There are so many things that if we do will certainly please Allah SWT the list is very long but I will emphasis on one and that is caring for orphans. Allah SWT said in the Quran that you do “Ikraam ul Yateem” which means ‘honor the orphan’. This means we do not just provide food, shelter or clothes to the orphans but we honor them and how do we do that; we treat them with respect, we choose the same for them what we choose for our own children and the last but not least we give them all of this not for anything else but purely to get the pleasure of Allah SWT.
The good news is that we don’t have to wait for the specific time to do this investment, we do not need any Financial Guru’s help to assist us with making this investment and of course we don’t need to worry about the return because that is promised by Allah SWT and He is the one who never break His promise. The bad news is that we are not going to get Allah’s blessings without making extraordinary efforts, remember “invest the best to get the best” and that’s what applies here but Allah SWT is not asking to invest what you have the best for Him but He is asking you to invest in His people and particularly the ‘orphans’.
Ramadan is the time of the year when you give one dollar you get seventy times the reward from Allah SWT in return this could be more if you choose to care and honor the Orphans.
The way to make this investment is that you can give Zakat, Fitra or Sadaqa to your local charity, local Masjid, organizations that are working on local, national or international level particularly those working with orphan children. Now is the best time to make your investment and get an everlasting reward.
