Ask an Alim

Is my intention still pure, if I want to collect money for charity purpose and earn a prize from the university


Assalam o Alaikum
I wanna ask a question that I have arranged for a charity stall just for Allah’s sake then I collected a huge sum of money RS 6000 and the university wants to give me a prize if I earn more than 10000 so now I want to do it for both for Allah and to earn a prize. Is my intention still pure or will this deed not earn me anything in the eyes of Allah.
Please tell if this will reduce the sawab ,I will not yearn for the prize.


Wa Alaykumussalam

Thank you for your query.

You can keep your intention pure for the sake of Allah and get the prize as well. You will try to get more charity but your intention will be for the sake of Allah(swt), if the amount increases up to 10,000 you will get the prize and incase it doesn’t increase you will not get the prize but in both cases your intention will be for the sake of Allah.
