Narniah

When was the first time you ever sent money back home

Recommended Posts

Odey   

This thread is depressing me by reminding me of all those undeserving fools I had been wasting my money on the past oh,,,,, 15 plus years!.

 

My Advice Narniah is this;

 

Give, for it is baraka to give and I can testify to it because all that I gave, I got back and then some!. However give smartly. People back home will call you and make up so many gut wrenching stories, that you will feel obliged to give.

 

Consider the following in your plan;

 

1. The elderly. This group, particularly if they dont have a support system are extremely vulnerable

2. Orphans- Make sure those that you send the money to help the actually deliver on this(So many greedy people out there)

3. Mothers raising kids- Particularly if they are married to a poor man or divorced and have no support network

4. Your own "Walid", Grandmothers, Abti's, Adeer's whom you feel are needy.

 

Not necessarily in that order mind you. Good Luck and May Allah accept your Sadaqah

Ismahaan   

Narniah Walaalo sadaqada la bax cidna ha kala tashan. Allah (swt) will rewards for as long as people benefit from your saqadaha Jariah. ''When a man passes away, his good deeds will also come to an end except for three: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); a knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (for the deceased)” Narrated by Abu Hurairah, Sahih Muslim

 

Good luck Insha Allah

Narniah - Sadaqa is good, send it to any masjid or orphanage back home. If you have extended family in need send it to them..as charity begins at home. What your mother is trying to teach you is to be selfless.

 

ps. Apophis - must every thread be about you? talk about self obessesion..bisinka.

Narnia:When was the first time you ever sent money back home

And who did you send it to?

My anecdote was relevant to the question however, the same cannot be said for your patronising advice. "Sadaqa is good..", are you kidding?? lol

Narniah maasha allah, portion of my salary is sent back every month, waxa la raba gacantada midig ineysan ogaan sadaqada ay bixiso gacantada bidix, ogow you get it back iyagoo laba laaban

 

I am currently back home and the need is big, you may be able inaad qof ka farxisid, i would just give to hooyo and ask her to distribute dadka u baahan

 

once again maasha allah, to be able to give something, however little is very rewarding

 

war gabadha faatixada iigu mara inuu alle siiyo cumri dheer iyo cibaado suuban

I could not agree more with Odey, but would start with my close relatives first. I have been doing that for the last 15 years and hope Allah will accept it.

One more thing is once you start send money you need to continue sending it because i found out that they some how plan their spending around what your are sending. So send the amount that you know you can continue sending it on regular basis. In Ramadan or Eid you could send more as they say Barakada Ramadan

 

bless you

MashaAllah, your mother is right sis. You'll get so much more in return especially when you need it the most.

Sometimes Its difficult to see who needs it the most. Many a times there are many at the same time or one focus only on those who ask and not so much on those whose poor condition is not known and is ashamed to beg of others. I guess thats when our parents comes in and is helpful.

Few years ago my mom cajoled me into sending money to my dugsi teacher. I was hoping he'd put my hard earned money to good use like donate it to orphanage or buy his kids brand new shoes or invest in better oral hygiene, his huuro waa lagu suuxi jirey. It is was not like I was sending money to hardcore jaat chewer. What could go wrong? So, what did the Balaayo Qabihii do? He used the money to go to Hajj the most useless pilgrimage of pilgrimages. Suffice to say he never got a penny from me ever again.

^ I thought you were going to write he got married again, now THAT would be a waste of your money. Unless you sent him a considerable amount of money I doubt you paid for him to go to hajj, he probably did that from saving for years. I also doubt that he has lost anything by you not sending him anymore money, the guy has done his hajj and he has a job. :)

 

Finally as you're probably looking for a reaction about your "useless journey" comment, we're all adults here, we're all free to believe what we wish so lets not make excuses to swabble about our differences.

 

If you have close family in Somalia, it's almost obligatory to send regular amounts back home. It's also nice to think that your pay day is also other peoples thousands of miles away!
