What is Sadaqa?

Sadaqa is a beautiful expression of the human spirit that seeks to bring joy and positivity into the lives of others. It is a voluntary act of charity that is driven by the desire to please Allah and to show love and compassion towards those in need.

Sadaqa takes many forms, from simple acts of kindness like a smile or a helping hand, to more significant acts of generosity and selflessness. Whether physical or non-monetary, every act of sadaqa is a powerful reminder of our shared humanity and the importance of lifting one another up in times of need.

So if you’re looking for a way to make a positive impact in the world and to show your love and compassion for others, consider making sadaqa a part of your daily life. Whether through a small act of kindness or a larger charitable donation, every act of sadaqa has the power to make a difference and to bring joy and hope to those who need it most.

Hadiths About Sadaqa?
Imam Ali (as)

When you are blessed with sustenance then give generously

Ghurar ul Hikam
Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq (as)

Hasten towards charity, the misfortunes do not exceed it, and whoever takes it out at the beginning of the morning, Allah will push away the evil of what comes down from heaven on that day. and if he takes it out at the beginning of the night, Allah will push away the evil of what comes down from heaven on that night

Man la yahdharahul Faqih vol 2 pg 67

Thus, giving Sadaqah on behalf of Ahlul-bait (A.S) shows our love and towards them. Sadaqa is considered a gateway to have wishes granted, and many Islamic scholars have agreed upon this.


Sadqa is different from Zakat, which is an obligatory form of charity that is prescribed for Muslims who meet certain criteria of wealth and savings. Sadqa, on the other hand, can be given by anyone at any time, and is not limited to a specific amount or form of giving.
