Hello, I am interested in the gift-giving practices which are present within Islam, both historically and today. I am giving a paper on gift-giving within the Isma'ili faction of Shia Islam and I'm interested in the comparison of this to other factions. I am particularly interested in the history, so any information regarding pre-1500 Islam would be particularly valuable. Are there any etiquettes to giving? The Qu'ran warns about giving with the aim of receiving (74.6), would this forbid giving to those of a higher social level? Charity may be viewed in many ways a fundamental part of the religion, does giving amongst equals hold such an important role within doctrine or practice? I would be grateful for any substantiated pieces of information.
