​CHARITY (صدق) 

Allah سبحانه وتعالى says:

O you who believe! Spend (for the cause of Allâh) out of that which We have provided you with, before there comes the Day wherein there shall be no buying and selling, nor friendship, nor intercession. Those who refuse to obey this (commandment) are the real wrongdoers (to themselves).Q2:254

Riyad as-Salihin, Book 1, Hadith 122

Narrated ‘Abu Hurairah (ra):

Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said, “Every day the sun rises charity (Sadaqah) is due on every joint of a person: you administer justice between two men is a charity; and assisting a man to mount his beast, or helping him load his luggage on it is a charity; and a good word is a charity; and every step that you take (towards the mosque) for Salat (prayer) is a charity and removing harmful things from the road is a charity”.[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].In Muslim, it is reported on the authority of ‘Aishah (ra) that Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said, “Everyone of the children of Adam has been created with three hundred and sixty joints; so he who declares the Glory of Allah (i.e., saying Allahu Akbar), praises Allah (i.e., Al-hamdu lillah), declares Allah to be One (i.e., La ilaha illallah), glorifies Allah, and seeks forgiveness from Allah (i.e., Astaghfirullah), and removes stone, or thorn, or bone from people’s path, and enjoins good and forbids evil, to the number of those three hundred and sixty, will walk that day having rescued himself from Hell”. 

May Allah make us among those that will be spending in the cause of Allah. May He sustained us, put rahma in our wealth and make us servants that will be grateful.
