Q685: Any significance in odd number?

Question

AWW Shaykh

I have seen people give gifts like£51,£101,£301,£501 etc. is there any significance of an odd number?

Jazakallah,may Allah reward you abundantly…ameen. Remember me in your duas

Answer

Walaikumussalam w w

One Saheeh Hadith states: “Verily Allah is one and He likes odd numbers”

Keeping that in mind, many people like to give that extra pound, in order to please Allah swt.

    Jazakallah shaikh for confirming this for me, as the last time someone gave 101 somebody made a comment ‘that’s a hindu rasum’ Alhamdulillah you have put this issue to rest in my mind.
