Paying Debts, Ease Others In Whatever Way We Can In Times Of Crisis, Its Sunnah!

Abu Hurairah (RAA) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
“If anyone relieves a Muslim believer from one of the hardships of this worldly life, Allah will relieve him of one of the hardships of the Day of Resurrection. If anyone makes it easy for the one who is indebted to him (while finding it difficult to repay), Allah will make it easy for him in this worldly life and in the Hereafter, and if anyone conceals the faults of a Muslim, Allah will conceal his faults in this world and in the Hereafter. Allah helps His slave as long as he helps his brother.” Related by Muslim.
وَعَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ‏- رضى الله عنه ‏- قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اَللَّهِ ‏- صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏-{ مَنْ نَفَّسَ عَنْ مُؤْمِنٍ كُرْبَةً مِنْ كُرَبِ اَلدُّنْيَا, نَفَّسَ اَللَّهُ عَنْهُ كُرْبَةً مِنْ كُرَبِ يَوْمِ اَلْقِيَامَةِ , وَمَنْ يَسَّرَ عَلَى مُعْسِرٍ, يَسَّرَ اَللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ فِي اَلدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ, وَمَنْ سَتَرَ مُسْلِمًا, سَتَرَهُ اَللَّهُ فِي اَلدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ, وَاَللَّهُ فِي عَوْنِ اَلْعَبْدِ مَا كَانَ اَلْعَبْدُ فِي عَوْنِ
أَخِيهِ } أَخْرَجَهُ مُسْلِمٌ.‏ (1924)‏ .‏

The crisis of covid-19 seems to have no ending for now, the global economy is taking its toll as well especially for those who need to earn their daily wages. Ya Allah we are crying for Your help to put an end to this deadly epidemics.

Our Malaysian government have set up a few plans to relieve people who are severely afflicted by these situations. For example, the government have done so by waiving and postponing some loans, as well as giving some support to them in term of subsidies to ease their daily needs. Subhana Allah.

Our beloved prophet Muhammad (saw) has emphasized on these reliefs many times and prescribed them as obligatory acts in Islam.

Alhamdulillah, Our Government Is Doing Exactly That! Ya Allah, thank You Allah for giving a blessed ilham to our Governmemt. Please grant all the strength to our leaders and bless them with Your infinite blessings, protect them and save our nation and the entire world from the catastrophy.

May Allah swt provide barakah to our country and build our economy to be stronger and better after the covid-19 carnage vanished inshaAllah.

May Allah swt grant the blessings and Barakah multiplied to those who are doing all these humanitarian deeds and aids too for the sake of Allah swt inshaAllah.

InshaAllah, the reward would be unquantifiable especially when we are performing it during the sacred month of Ramadhan, when the rewards of a certain act will be tenfold or even more. May Allah swt give us sincerity when we are doing it, inshaAllah.

In doing these sunnah acts, in sha Allah we will also be able to fulfil our part in giving alms to others for the sake of Allah is another substantial part of our ibadah.

Ya Allah we beg for Your infinite mercy for us to be granted more thoufeeq to serve You and to serve for Your Dheen sincerely.
