A lecture based on one of his well-known khutbahs about charity. Imam Siraj Wahhaj demonstrates the reality of wealth from an Islamic perspective. He reminds the audience to use their money wisely and inspires them to spend now before it’s too late. Remarking that this is one of the most important topics to understand, he places the life of this world in the proper context and reminds us of just how fleeting material things really are.

Includes an extensive question and answer session that addresses, among other things, the following issues: saving money in the bank, balance in spending, zakat on gold jewelry, sadaqah jariyyah, reward for helping non-Muslims, and giving zakat to non-Muslims.

Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
"When a person dies, his deeds are cut off except for three: Continuing charity, knowledge that others benefited from, and a righteous son who supplicates for him."
