Should you take Tax Receipts for Charity?

Bismillah, alhamdulillah, wa salat wa salam ala rasulullah

I’m no financial expert but from what I’ve noticed in the community is whenever there are fundraisers, tax receipts are offered. Some people turn down the tax receipt by saying, “No I am only donating for the sake of God.”

But what they don’t realize is the money they would get back from the government is money they could re-give in charity! Its totally bogus to ignore that tax receipt, when you could get back 50% of what you donated from the government, and then give it in charity again- thereby, increasing the amount you give in charity without doing anything!

So take those tax receipts!!

Subhana kallahumma wa bihamdika ash-haduana la illaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk, Ameen.
