Simple Acts of Charity

Qasim Rahimahullah narrates: A man passed by Abu Darda (RA) in Damascus when he was
planting a tree and said to Abu Darda (RA): Are you also doing a (worldly) work, though you are a
Sahabi (companion) of Rasulullah (peace and blessings be upon him)? He said: Don't hasten to
blame me; I heard Rasulullah saying: Never did a man plant a sapling (a young tree), and then a
man, or any other creation of Allah Glory to Him, ate (or benefited) from it, except that it becomes a
Sadaqah (charity) for the planter.

Source: Sahih Muslim.

Islam considers the slightest acts of helping others as charity! Even smiling at others to make them
happy is counted as charity. It is due to our selfishness that mankind suffers. Let us give more
and take less.Give charity as much as you can as prophet Muhammad ( (sal-lal-lahu alai hi wa sallam).w) also said that
charity doesn't decrease your wealth spread the words of prophet Muhammad ( (sal-lal-lahu alai hi wa sallam).w)..
JazakaaAllah

Charity Increases Wealth

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Those who spend in causes seeking the pleasure of Allah remain in His shelter. Angels send blessings on them and pray for increase in their wealth.” [Muslim]

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) swore that spending for the pleasure of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) did not decrease wealth, rather increased it. When you feel financial hardship, give more in the path of Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) to increase your wealth!


Charity Not To Rich Or Healthy


The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "It is not permissible to give charity to a rich man (or one who is independent of means) or to one who is strong and healthy." [Sunan An-Nasai - Sahih]

'Strong' means the one who is capable of earning his livelihood. And ‘healthy’ means the one whose hands and feet are wholesome and not handicapped, and he is not incapacitated by some illness. If such a person is poor despite his labour or is unable to find employment, then he will be entitled to receive Zakah or Sadaqah.

Plant a Tree

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Never a Muslim plants a tree, but he has the reward of charity for him; for what is eaten out of that is charity, what is stolen out of that, what the beasts eat out of that, what the birds eat out of that, is charity for him.” [Bukhari]

Plant a tree, preferably a fruit tree. Don’t worry about whether you get to enjoy its fruits or not. Let bird, beast and man benefit from it. Without even realizing how much, you will be accruing good deeds in your account.

This hadith states that “a Muslim” who plants a tree will have that count as charity for him. This is because good deeds are only worthy of reward when they are done for Allah’s sake. He who does something because Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) told him to, can hope for Allah’s reward; but he who does it for fame, personal morality, or any other reason, should expect no reward from Allah. If he sought fame then his reward is to be appreciated by people; if he did it to suit his personal inclinations then his personal satisfaction is his reward; and so on.
