In Surah al-Baqarah, (2:261–275), the Qur’an discusses in detail the concept of spending in Allah’s way and all the dos and don’ts associated with it. It is said that whatever we spend out of our wealth will be returned to us multiple times (v261). Using a simile of a rock and a garden, believers have been warned to not boast about their actions. If they remind others of their action, they are like a hard rock that has been left barren after heavy rainfall (v264). However, if they spend their wealth to gain Allah’s approval then their example is of a garden on high ground, which when hit by heavy rain, increases its yield (v265).
