Allah’s giving falls under tw o categories


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

1.General giving in worldly life:

It encompasses all people, believers and dis believers, as Allah Almighty sets aright their worldly affairs. In the Qur’an, He says:

{We give both – the latter and the former –from the bounty of your Lord, and Your Lord’s bounty is not restricted.}

[Surat al- Isrā’: 20]

2. Special giving in worldly life and in the Hereafter:

It encompasses the prophets, the messengers, and righteous people. Allah Almighty provides them in this life with lawful sustenance, good children, faith, piety, certitude, and clear guidance. These are the best gifts in worldly life. The Messenger of Allah (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“Allah Almighty gives worldly opulence to those He loves and those He does not love; but He only gives the religion to those He loves.”

[Narrated by Al - Hākim in Al - Mustadrak; Classified as Sahīh (authenti c) by Al - Dhahabi ]

And in the Hereafter, He gives them the greatest gift in His Paradise, which is more magnificent and perfect than all else. Allah Almighty says:

{A reward and a generous gift from your Lord.}

[Surat an - Naba’: 36]

“Allah Almighty gives worldly opulence to those He loves and those He does not love; but He only gives the religion to those He loves.”

[Narrated by Al - Hākim in Al - Mustadrak; Classified as Sahīh (authentic) by Al - Dhahabi]

And in the Hereafter, He gives them the greatest gift in His Paradise, which is more magnificent and perfect than all else. Allah Almighty says:

{A reward and a generous gift from your Lord.}

[Surat an - Naba’: 36]

The greatest gift in Paradise will be the pleasure of the Lord of all the worlds and looking at His noble Face.
