Give Zakat Through The Messenger
I seek refuge in GOD, against Satan the rejected. In the name of The GOD, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful. My Lord, I seek refuge in You against the whispers of the devils. And I seek refuge in You, my Lord, lest they come near me.
I am one of the messengers sent by The GOD. The believers shall submit charities to me, for me to distribute to the needy, in order to be spiritually purified of their sins, as well as to gain the spiritual benefits of giving anonymous charity.
“And others have acknowledged their sins. They had mixed a righteous deed with another that was evil. Perhaps The GOD will turn to them. The GOD is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. Take from their wealth a charity, purifying them, and cause them increase by it, and bless them. Indeed, your blessings are a reassurance for them. And The GOD is All-Hearer, All-Knower” – The Recitation, 9:102-103.
The g.v. (gemmatrical value; see my post https://myresearchofthequran.wordpress.com/2015/11/26/gemmatrical-values/) of my full Arabic name, Hamza ‘Abdullah Shari’ati, is 1,192. The g.v. of the Arabic word “Arrasool,” meaning “The Messenger,” is 327. The following mathematics is evidence that I am one of the messengers that 9:103 is addressing:
1: 1192 + 327 = 1,519 = 7 x 7 x 31, (“Hamza ‘Abdullah Shari’ati” plus “Arrasool (The Messenger)” equals 7 x 7 x31). Since 7 is one of GOD’s mathematical signatures, along with 1 and 9, this is evidence that I am one of GOD’s messengers.
2: 1,192 + 327 + 9 + 103 (where 9 is surah number 9, and 103 is verse 103 of Surah 9) = 1,631 = 7 x 233, (“Hamza ‘Abdullah Shari’ati The Messenger” plus The Qur’an 9:103 equals 7 x 33). This is evidence that 9:103 of The Recitation is specifically telling me, Hamza ‘Abdullah Shari’ati the messenger, to take charities from the believers that have mixed bad deeds with good deeds, in order for them to be spiritually purified.
Furthermore, The Recitation clarifies rules on the distribution of charity. We are permitted to give charity without doing so anonymously, however, The Recitation states that it is better for us to give charity anonymously, i.e. through a messenger or through other people that work to collect charity and distribute it.
“And whatever you spend from expenditures, or your vow of vows, then indeed The GOD knows it, and not for the wrongdoers are there any helpers. If you disclose the ssadaqat (ssadaqah charities), then good it is. But if you keep it secret, and give it to the poor, then it is better for you, and He will remove from you (more) of your evil deeds. And The GOD of what you do is All-Aware” – The Recitation, 2:270-271.
The Recitation gives specific details regarding how to distribute the charities. Therefore, when believers submit their ssadaqat charities to the messengers among them, those messengers must distribute those charities in accordance to the specifications in The Qur’an. Since I am a messenger sent by The GOD, as a messenger one of my duties is to collect the ssadaqat charities from the believers, give them blessings, and distribute their ssadaqat charities for them in accordance to the specifications that are clarified in The Recitation. We are to distribute the ssadaqat first to our families, our parents, then the poor, the needy, the homeless, the hungry, the people emigrating in the cause of The GOD, the vanguards striving and fighting in the cause of The GOD, and the travelers. As for spoils of war, 1/5 shall go to the messenger, to be distributed as charity.
