ISLAMIC NOTES: Eleven Forms Of Sadaqa/Charity

In the Name of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

It was narrated that Allah's Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam said: "Every person must perform a charity each day that the sun rises: to judge justly between two people is a charity. To help a man with his mount, lifting him onto it or hoisting up his belongings onto it, is a charity. And the good word is a charity [good words such as kind advice, enjoining good deeds and forbidding evil, sharing reminders and sincere compliments]. And every step that you take towards the prayer is a charity, and removing a harmful object from the people's way is a charity."

[Sahih Bukhari and Muslim]

Examples Of Sadaqa/Charity:
1. Feeding hungry, needy or fasting Muslims.
2. Giving a gift or souvenir to a Muslim.
3. Offering a ride or transportation for free.
4. Defending Muslims who are oppressed or who are being badly spoken of.
5. Reconciling and making peace between Muslims.
6. Finding a righteous spouse for a Muslim.
7. Assisting a Muslim or helping Muslims in only what is good.
8. Removing harmful items from people's way and keeping the environment clean.
9. Sharing sincere advice, compliments or useful knowledge.
10. Smiling, being friendly and making Muslims smile.
11. Including Muslims in your good du'as.

Include all Muslims worldwide in your good du'as :)
May Allah the Most Merciful accept all our good deeds, May Allah the Most Forgiving forgive all our sins, and May Allah the Almighty join us with His righteous friends in Firdaus/Heaven near Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad sallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Ameen.
