Sadaqah Donations

For those who give in Charity, men and women, and loan to Allah a Beautiful Loan, it shall be increased manifold (to their credit), and they shall have (besides) a liberal reward. -The Holy Qur’an 57:18

Sadaqah, meaning ‘charity’, is the concept of voluntary giving in Islam. The term stems from the Arabic root word ‘sidq’, which means sincerity. So giving sadaqah is considered a sign of sincere faith.

Sadaqah is different from zakat, in that it is not obligatory on any kind of surplus wealth. Described in the Holy Qur’an as ‘a beautiful loan’, sadaqah encompasses any act of charitable giving done out of compassion, love, friendship or generosity. It can be given to anyone, and it has no limits or guidelines. In the Islamic faith, even a smile is considered sadaqah.

Sadaqah may be given to mark or bring blessings to special occasions such as weddings, births, and personal success, as a sign of gratitude to Allah (swt). It may also be given in instances of sadness and bereavement, or on behalf of others.
