In the past 13 years I have heard many many people, almost most of them saying: "Doctor, we had spent lakhs and lakhs for our diseases in allopathy; we have come to you as a last resort; please for God's sake give us some relief at least; we will give you anything you ask for if we could get relief from what we are suffering; but we have no money at hand now." Yet I had never asked them for money; I know they would not give once they get better as their miserliness would get the better of them. Most of them betrayed themselves. Yes, even at this moment they would spend tens and tens of lakhs in allopathic treatment to no avail.
Spending for a good cause is offering to God himself is what you should know. And spending for your own good self, even sky should not be the limit for your offering, if you have the means; all you have to do is to seek from God: O God, expand our heart and give us the means from You so that we shall spend as offering to know you and get dearer to You and to give our thanks to you.
All the distresses and difficulties started when one starts to earn the worldly pleasures by way money and the evil ways each adopted to earn it. The way you earn the money is the way you would spend the rest of your lives. If I tell a lie in my business dealings and every penny I taste of it start a new evil in me. Unless I purify that money by seeking forgiveness and spend for my own good cause, to get rid of the life long diseases and distresses and afflictions there is no way I would ever get well.
Offering to one's own good is the salvation to get rid of the evil forces he is breeding, out of such ways and means ny which he earned his money for his living in suffering.
I helped them taste their own blessings of God and showed them the way to get nearer and dearer to Him. Most of those who said they would give anything for their lives were not truthful to their very words and never offered as thanks giving to their God. For 13 years, by God's grace I was not in need of your fees for my living and never would God leave me to that lowest level. What He gives me from Him is wholesomely sufficient.
The 5000/- was only a token of gratitude you shall show to your God for He having guided you to His blessings. People then told me that this amount was so huge for just a few minutes stay with me. Similarly you will know in due course what you say now as too much for you is nothing compared to what you get out of the blessings of God. And after similar years from this day when I ask for a crore of rupees or more, you would say the same thing which again would be nothing if only you know for what purpose you make the offering.
I am equating haves and have-nots in that both will become stingy when it comes to part with money for good cause, but for the cause of allopathy they would give their very lives. There is one beautiful concession for them, they can have their own time concession to give the least minimum amount, the token of one lac.
9:103 Take, from their wealth a charity by which you purify them and cause them increase, and invoke Allah's blessings upon them. Indeed, your invocations are reassurance for them. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
3:92 Never will you attain the good reward until you spend for your own good cause from that wealth which you love. And whatever you spend - indeed, Allah is Knowing of it.
And one last thing any one shall understand is the more you talk on behalf of the poor, the reason behind using the lamenting word, 'poor people' is as only a shield for yourself to cover your stingy heart.
