Charity (Sadaqa)

Allaah says: “And let not those who hold back miserly from giving that which Allaah has bestowed on them from His Bounty think that it is good for them. Nay, it will be worse for them. The things that they held back from giving will be tied to their necks like a collar on the Day of Recompense. And to Allaah belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth, and Allaah is well-Aware of a…ll that you do.” [Surah Aali ‘Imraan: 180]

Narrated ‘Adi bin Hatim(R A) heard the Prophet(SAWS) saying:
“Save yourself from Hell-fire even by giving half a date-fruit in charity.”
[Bukhari :: Book 24 :: Volume 2 :: Hadith 498 ]

Narrated Abu Huraira(R A):
The Prophet (SAWS) said, “Seven people will be shaded by Allaah under His shade on the day when there will be no shade except His. They are:
(1) a just ruler;
(2) a young man who has been brought up in the worship of Allaah, (i.e. worship Allaah (Alone) sincerely from his childhood),
(3) a man whose heart is attached to the mosque (who offers the five compulsory congregational prayers in the mosque);
(4) two persons who love each other only for Allaah ‘s sake and they meet and part in Allaah ‘s cause only;
(5) a man who refuses the call of a charming woman of noble birth for an illegal sexual intercourse with her and says: I am afraid of Allaah ;
(6) a person who practices charity so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given (i.e. nobody knows how much he has given in charity).
(7) a person who remembers Allaah in seclusion and his eyes get flooded with tears.”
