He stated: “God created mankind as the best creatures, and provided people with many gifts and facilities to use; but sometimes this exploitation keeps the human being away from the real goal. Therefore, Allah Almighty has commanded Zakat and charity, and has asked the man to forgive and sacrifice what he loves.”
Noting that endowment is one of the factors that helps man becomes free, the Qur’an scholar added, “It is the good remnants that remain for humans, but we should use what we have in this world for that world.”
He said, “The charity is for not letting the man rebel. Allah Almighty through the teachings in the Holy Qur’an and the great Prophet of Islam (S.A.W) cuts man from the worldly affiliations. The prophet of Islam (S.A.W.) has come to unlock the chains and abandon human beings.”
Referring to the fact that great works in Islamic history were supported by great events, Dr. Mahdavirad stated, “The endowment has a very high position with many blessings and outcomes. The endowment exists in all schools of thought across the world.”
