WHAT IS SADAQA?
Also referred to as Lillah, Sadaqah or Sadaqa ( Arabic: صدقة ) means to voluntarily give charity out of the goodness of one’s heart. This is not an Islamic obligation, but rather a practice conducted to help those in need or the deprived. This act goes to show the strength of the believer’s faith and increases it further. Sadaqa does not refer solely to money in Islam because a Sadaqa can be anything as small as a smile towards a stranger or removing an obstacle or thorn from a path. It is simply a deed that helps someone else, in any way.
