Referring to the importance of charity, Hujjat al-Islam al-Safi said, “Money and property also become valuable when they are given as gifts and charity to others. Money is valuable when it is spent in the way of God, not when they are accumulated and hoarded.”
“We are now witnessing the charity of people to the fighters on the front lines of the battle of truth against falsehood,” the Iraq cleric highlighted.
His Eminence added no charity better than spending one’s wealth to support those fighting against terrorism.
Hujjat al-Islam al-Safi noted the example of Korah, who was a rich Israelite at the time of Moses who became very arrogant due to his pride and ignorance over his wealth, and said he represents the authorities who collected money and wealth unlawfully and committed fraud against the people.
