Spending money in the way of Allah.

Q. Is it true that whoever spends money in the way of Allah, he gets 7 lakh times sawab and his amals multiplies 49 crore times?

A. Allah Ta’ala says, The example of those who spend in the way of Allah is just like a grain that produced seven ears, in each ear is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies for whom He wills. (Sura Baqarah v 261)

In a hadith Hadrat Abu Hurayrah (RA) said that the Messenger of Allah (SAS) said, “Every good deed that the son of Adam performs will be multiplied ten folds, to seven hundred folds, to many other folds, to as much as Allah wills. (Musnad Ahmad)

And Allah knows best.
