Now everyone can give

   The Messenger of Allah said, "Sadaqah is prescribed for every person everyday the sun rises."

Question: From what do we give sadaqah if we do not possess property? 

   Well, there are many other ways that we can do in order to earn the reward of sadaqah. You do not necessarily need to have financial resources to give sadaqah and definitely, you do not have to be a wealth person in order to perfom this act of kindness. 

   The doors of sadaqah can come in many different ways. Takbir is one of them. Saying Allahuakbar, Subhanallah, Alhamdulillah, LailahailAllah, Astagfirullah is part of sadaqah.

   Helping others is indubitably one way of giving sadaqah. Be it helping in terms of lending your hands, guiding a blind, guiding a person to his/her object of need, hurrying with the strength of your legs to one sorrow who is appealing for help or supporting the weak with the strength of your arms. Those are also considered as sadaqah.

   The easiest way to give is by removing thorns, stones or sticks from people paths. Even the slightest gesture; SMILE is part of sadaqah. Saying and producing good words is sadaqah.

   In fact, planting anything from which a person, an animal or anything eats is sadaqah. So, let's dig some soil and start planting something! *wink*

   There are obviously many other things that we can do to earn this reward and they can sometimes be the easiest thing you can do and imagine but they surely reward you well. So, why not, do it. Most importantly, do it sincerely and with the intention to please Allah, insyaAllah. 

Money is not the only thing we can give as sadaqah, lads.
