Q 4: Many Hadiths of the Prophet (peace be upon him) that exhort people to spend in the Way of Allah point out that whoever does so will be rewarded in this life by having their wealth blessed and multiplied in reward by Allah in addition to the reward they will receive in the Hereafter.
Does the one who gives intending to receive both the rewards of this life and the Hereafter miss the reward of the Hereafter?
What should one's intention be in this case? I ask Allah to increase you in knowledge and help you do perform righteous deeds.
If a person spends in the Way of Allah intending to get the rewards of this life and the Hereafter which Allah promised, (Part No. 8; Page No. 85) there is no harm in this. Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) says :
Our Lord! Give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good
The Prophet (peace be upon him) stated:
Whoever would like their provision to be abundant and lifespan to be extended, let them maintain the ties of kinship.
(Agreed upon by Al-Bukhari and Muslim)May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
