Virtue of Mending Ties, Justice, and Assistance amongst One Another


Abu Hurayrah narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
"Every joint of a person must do a charity each day that the sun rises. Acting justly between two people is a charity, assisting a man onto his mount, or hoisting his belongings onto it is a charity, a good word is a charity, every step you take to perform the prayer is a charity, and removing harmful objects from the roadway is charity."

(Related by Bukhaaree and Muslim)

My take:
This hadith describes various types of charity and actions that are deemed virtuous. It is amazing that the smallest good deeds can be considered charity and ways of coming closer to our Lord.

May Allah make it easy on us to perform acts of charity throughout every day. Ameen.
