Charity can take many forms and doesn’t just involve giving money to the poor. Even simple things can earn us good deeds Insha’Allah if we do it with the intention of helping someone and pleasing Allah SWT. Alhamdulilah we are blessed because there is always an opportunity for us to gain a reward somewhere. The Prophet SAW reminds us that each and every day is the chance to be rewarded for even the smallest of good deeds like giving half a date to someone.
Charity does in fact extend to every small bone in our body which works to help others or to perform acts of worship! Yes, even worship is considered charity J.
On the authority of Abu Huraira who said that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, “Every small bone of everyone has upon it a charitable act for every day upon which the sun rises. Bringing about justice between two is an act of charity. Helping a man get o his mount, lifting him onto it or helping him put his belongings on to it, is a charitable act. A good word is charitable act. Every step you take toward the prayer is a charitable act. Every step you take removing a harmful thing from the path is a charitable act”. Al Bukhari and Muslim.
Let us all keep this hadith in mind as we go about our daily routine and see how many acts of charity we can perform in one day Insha’Allah. May Allah SWT as always make it easy for us to follow the Prophet SAW’s recommendations, ameen.
