Qur’an

Allah has declared:

“They were enjoined only to worship Allah… and to establish the Salah and the Zakat. Such is the upright religion.”

“Let not those who are miserly with what Allah has given them of His bounty think that this is good for them. Rather, it is bad for them. That which they withhold shall be hung (blazing) around their necks on the Day of Arising.”

Hadith

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad [s] said:

“Whoever is given wealth by Allah and does not pay the Zakah due thereupon shall find that on the Day of Arising it is made to appear to him as a hairless snake with two black specks, which chains him, and then seizes him by his jaw and says, ‘I am your wealth! I am your treasure!”

“The generous one is close to Allah, close to Paradise, close to the people and away from Hell, whereas the miserly one is away from Allah, away from Paradise and away from the people but certainly close to Hell.”
