What is charity?

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Every act of goodness is charity.” – Sahih Muslim

The importance of charity

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.” – Al-Tirmidhi

The Prophet (peace be upon him) also said: “Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.” – Al-Tirmidhi

Smiling is charity

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Charity is prescribed for each descendant of Adam every day the sun rises.” He was then asked: “From what do we give charity every day?” The Prophet answered: “The doors of goodness are many…enjoining good, forbidding evil, removing harm from the road, listening to the deaf, leading the blind, guiding one to the object of his need, hurrying with the strength of one’s legs to one in sorrow who is asking for help, and supporting the feeble with the strength of one’s arms–all of these are charity prescribed for you.” He also said: “Your smile for your brother is charity.” – Fiqh-us-Sunnah, Volume 3, Number 98

Asalaam O Alaykum,

Well what can I say, I had a goal for four posts but I haven’t been up to fulfill this goal. I haven’t updated much because of my hectic schedule, I have one course to go before I’m done high school (InshaAllah) and then it is exam mania. Some more exciting news is that Al Huda 2007-08 students are having their convocation ceremony on 27th of June. It’s really exciting :).  Anyway, this is just an update post to notify whoever has been following my blog that I have not disappeared! Once I am finished with all my academic studies, InshaAllah, I plan to blog throughout the summer.
