Have Nots / Twenty Fifth Juz

As salaam alaikum,

Something to think about in the context of deprivation in this world:

"For, if God were to grant [in this world] abundant sustenance to [all of] His servants, they would behave on earth with wanton insolence: but as it is, He bestows [His grace] from on high in due measure, as He wills: for, verily, He is fully aware of [the needs of] His creatures, and sees them all." (42:27)

And yet, we are still called upon to give in charity to those who need. If everyone were as charitable as they are supposed to be, everyone would be a lot more well-off...

...but, you know, that might lead to socialism...
