Narrated Abu Musa Al-Ash’ari: The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said, ‘On every Muslim there is enjoined (a compulsory) sadaqa (alms).’ They (the people) said, ‘If one has nothing?’ He said, ‘He should work with his hands so that he may benefit himself and give in charity.’ They said, ‘If he cannot work or does not work?’ He said, ‘Then he should help the oppressed unhappy person (by word or action or both).’ They said, ‘If he does not do it?’ He said, ‘Then he should enjoin what is good (or said what is reasonable).’ They said, ‘If he does not do that?’ He said, ‘Then he should refrain from doing evil, for that will be considered for Him as a Sadaqa (charity)’ (Sahih al Bukhari, Vol. 8, Book 73, Hadith 51).
3 Reasons Why You Should be Volunteering
1. Invest in your Deen
Rather than something that takes seconds like donating money, invest your time. Remember: you get out of it what you put in.
2. Be the change you wish to see
What are you waiting for? Rather than wondering where your money went after you clicked the Donate button, the results are in front of you.
3. Social Productivity
Get out there and prove by example what being a Productive Muslim is about. (See Productive Muslim Newsletter for more on Social Productivity).
