[002.260] And (remember) when Ibrhm (Abraham) said, "My Lord! Show me how You give life to the dead." He (Allh) said: "Do you not believe?" He [Ibrhm (Abraham)] said: "Yes (I believe), but to be stronger in Faith." He said: "Take four birds, then cause them to incline towards you (then slaughter them, cut them into pieces), and then put a portion of them on every hill, and call them, they will come to you in haste. And know that Allh is All-Mighty, All-Wise."


[002.261] The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allh, is as the likeness of a grain (of corn); it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. Allh gives manifold increase to whom He wills. And Allh is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knower.


[002.262] Those who spend their wealth in the Cause of Allh, and do not follow up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or with injury, their reward is with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.


[002.263] Kind words and forgiving (of faults) are better than Sadaqah (charity) followed by injury. And Allh is Rich (Free of all needs) and He is Most Forbearing.


[002.264] O you who believe! Do not render in vain your Sadaqah (charity) by reminders of your generosity or by injury, like him who spends his wealth to be seen of men, and he does not believe in Allh, nor in the Last Day. His likeness is the likeness of a smooth rock on which is a little dust; on it falls heavy rain which leaves it bare. They are not able to do anything with what they have earned. And Allh does not guide the disbelieving people.
