Charity on a budget
Volunteering my time/
Educating the Lost Souls../
I'm like Meals on Wheels
Passing out exotic foods for thought/
That feed the mentally starving/
Representing the God in me/
Planting spiritual seeds/
In lost souls/
Hope they grow like trees/
To bear fruit to feed the youth/
Putting my blood, sweat, tears/
In donation buckets/
Sprinkling it over the earth/
Hoping it revives my people/
Taking them out of homelessness/
Making them home free
In the Quran "Charity" and prayer are the perfect religion.
[98:5] All that was asked of them was to
Such is the perfect religion.
devoting the religion absolutely to Him alone,
observe the contact prayers (Salat),
and give the obligatory charity (Zakat).
Charity decrees Allahs mercy:
[7:156] "And decree for us righteousness in this world, and in the Hereafter. We have repented to You." He said, "My retribution befalls whomever I will. But My mercy encompasses all things. However, I will specify it for those who
(1) lead a righteous life, (2) give the obligatory charity (Zakat), (3) believe in our revelations, and (4) follow the messenger, the gentile prophet (Muhammad), whom they find written in their Torah and Gospel.
He exhorts them to be righteous, enjoins them from evil, allows for them all good food, and prohibits that which is bad, and unloads the burdens and the shackles imposed upon them. Those who believe in him, respect him, support him, and follow the light that came with him are the successful ones."
Prophet Muhammad and all messengers have been following the principles of righteousness. The the tenets of monotheism established by Abraham:
[2:130] Who would forsake the religion of Abraham, except one who fools his own soul? We have chosen him in this world, and in the Hereafter he will be with the righteous.
[2:131] When his Lord said to him, "Submit," he said, "I submit to the Lord of the universe."
[2:132] Moreover, Abraham exhorted his children to do the same, and so did Jacob: "O my children, GOD has pointed out the religion for you; do not die except as submitters."
[2:133] Had you witnessed Jacob on his death bed; he said to his children, "What will you worship after I die?" They said, "We will worship your god; the god of your fathers Abraham, Ismail, and Isaac; the one god. To Him we are submitters."
[2:134] Such is a community from the past. They are responsible for what they earned, and you are responsible for what you earned. You are not answerable for anything they have done.
[2:135] They said, "You have to be Jewish or Christian, to be guided." Say, "We follow the religion of Abraham - monotheism - he never was an idol worshiper."
Charity on a budget:
Here's some things you can do on a budget GODwilling:
[2:225] GOD does not hold you responsible for the mere utterance of oaths; He holds you responsible for your innermost intentions. GOD is Forgiver, Clement.

[90:4] We created the human being to work hard (to redeem himself).
[90:5] Does he think that no one will ever call him to account?
[90:6] He boasts, "I spent so much money!"
[90:7] Does he think that no one sees him?
[90:8] Did we not give him two eyes?
[90:9] A tongue and two lips?
[90:10] Did we not show him the two paths?[90:11] He should choose the difficult path.
[90:12] Which one is the difficult path?
[90:13] The freeing of slaves.
[90:14] Feeding, during the time of hardship.
[90:15] Orphans who are related.
[90:16] Or the poor who is in need.
[90:17] And being one of those who believe, and exhorting one another to be steadfast, and exhorting one another to be kind.
[90:18] These have deserved happiness.
[90:19] As for those who disbelieved in our revelations, they have incurred misery.
[90:20] They will be confined in the Hellfire.
Peace be upon you
