INFAQ انفاق
Lit. “Giving forth: expending.” The word occurs once in the Qur’an, Surah xvii. 102: “Did ye control the treasuries of the mercy of my Lord, then ye would hold them through fear of expending (infaq), for man is ever niggardly.”
The word is used for giving in charity and in God’s service, in opposition to imsak.
