Imaam al-Shaafi’i Rahimahullaah said: ‘There is nobody except that he has someone who loves him and someone who hates him. So if that’s the case, let a person be with the people who are obedient to Allaah `Azza Wa Jall.’

Assalam alaikum,
Abu Musa Al-Ash'ari, may Allah be pleased with him, recounts that the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, once said, ''THERE IS A SADAQAH DUE ON EVERY MUSLIM: IF HE CANNOT GIVE BECAUSE HE HAS NO MONEY, LET HIM WORK. THEN HE CAN SUPPORT HIMSELF AND GIVE CHARITY. IF HE IS UNABLE TO WORK, LET HIM HELP SOMEONE IN NEED OF HIS HELP. IF HE CANNOT DO THIS, THEN LET HIM ENJOIN GOOD. IF HE CANNOT DO THAT, THEN HE SHUOLD DO NO EVIL NOR HARM OTHERS. (Even) THIS SHALL BE WRITTEN FOR HIM AS SADAQAH''. (Ahmad)

Related to this, a careful study of KITAB-al-AADAB, HUSN al-KHULUQ in Hadith Literature indicates that there are many kinds of Sadaqah we can give, which carry lots of reward that money cannot buy; for example:--
1. SIMPLE SMILE--Giving that friendly smiling face to your brother in Islam attracts reward
from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.
2. SINCERE ADVICE--This could be anything from helping someone get employment to giving
them ways of becoming more displined/organized persons in Life.
3. FEEDING THE HOMELESS/POOR.
4. VISITING THE SICK
