CHAPTER: 2 Al-Baqara
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful (1)

Spend in the way of Allah and do not put yourselves into destruction, and do good. Of course, Allah loves those who do good. (195)
Who is the one who would give Allah a good loan so that Allah multiplies it for him many times? Allah withholds and extends, and to Him you are to be returned. (245)

O you who believe, spend of the good things you have earned, and of what We have brought forth for you from the earth, and do not opt for a bad thing, spending only from it, while you are not going to accept it , unless you close your eyes to it, and know well that Allah is All-Independent, Ever-Praised. (267)

CHAPTER 3: THE FAMILY OF IMRAN: You shall never attain righteousness unless you spend from what you love. Whatsoever you spend, Allah is fully aware of it. (92)

CHAPTER 14: ABRAHAM: Say to My believing servants that they should establish prayer and spend, secretly and openly, out of what We have given to them before there comes a day in which there is neither a trade nor friendship. (31)

CHAPTER 57: THE IRON: Believe in Allah and His Messenger, and spend out of that in which He has appointed you as deputies. So, for those of you who have believed and spent, there is a big reward. (7)

And what is wrong with you that you should not spend in the way of Allah, while to Allah belongs the inheritance of the heavens and the earth? Those who spent before the Conquest and fought are not at par . Those are much greater in rank than those who spent later and fought, though Allah has promised the good for each. Allah is well aware of what you do. (10)

CHAPTER 63: THE HYPOCRITES: And spend out of what We have given to you before death overtakes one of you and he says, “My Lord, would you not give me respite to a near term, so that I should pay alms and become one of the righteous?” (10) But Allah will never give respite to anyone, once his appointed time will come. And Allah is All-Aware of what you do. (11)

CHAPTER 64: THE MUTUAL LOSS AND GAIN: So, observe piety as far as you can, and listen and obey, and spend , it being good for you. And those who are saved from the greed of their hearts are the successful. (16) If you advance a good loan to Allah, He will multiply it for you, and will forgive you. And Allah is Appreciative, Forbearing, (17) The Knower of the Unseen and the seen, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise. (18)

CHAPTER 73: THE ENFOLDED ONE: and advance to Allah a goodly loan. And whatever good you will send ahead for your own-selves, you will find it with Allah much better in condition, and much greater in reward. And seek forgiveness from Allah. Indeed Allah is Most-Forgiving, Very-Merciful. (20)
