SADAQAH (voluntary giving of charity) is a righteous act in Islam.
It shows the example of strong faith of a person. Giving Sadaqah increases one’s emaan (faith) and Allah shall reward him/her both in this world and life hereafter. Giving charity out of our wealth does not decrease our wealth but instead Allah (s.w.t.) increases it.
Many of us take for granted the blessings which we have in our lives such as food, clean drinking water, clothing, shelter, good health, electricity…etc. Many people throughout the world can barely feed themselves and their families and look on us for assistance.
SADAQAH (giving of charity) is a deed designed to eliminate the spiritual disease of stinginess. But because the heart of the donor is not protected from display and insincerity, it has strongly emphasised that Sadaqah should always be given secretly.
