The Paths to Excellence:
Good Deeds: Sadaqa (Charity) Brings Balance to the Society and Benefits the Community.
Giving Sadaqah to the orphans, widows, sick and needy ensures we live in a much fairer society by sharing the wealth. Sadaqah does not only mean giving money but it can be any act of kindness.
The Prophet (SAW) said: “Your smile for your brother is a charity. Your removal of stones, thorns or bones from the paths of people is a charity. Your guidance of a person who is lost is a charity” (Bukhari).
Sadaqah is about benefiting the whole community and looking after the vulnerable to better society.
