Any significance in odd number?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi

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

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.
