Topic:

 

Good Deeds/Sadaqah

 

Today's Quote:

Narrated Abu Hurayrah (radia Allahu anhu) The Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "Every part of a person's body must perform a charity every day the sun comes up: to act justly between two people is a charity; to help a man with his mount, lifting him onto it or hoisting his belongings onto it is a charity; a good word is a charity; and removing a harmful thing from the road is a charity"

(Bukhari & Muslim)

 

Goal:

 

To review/learn ways to perform good deeds to increase our ibadah

 

Activity 1:

 

Learn about some types of good deeds from the following collection of ahadith at:

http://www.islam4all.com/Charity.htm

c.      He who spends, he who withholds (reward vs. penalty, Muslim #2205-2210)

b.      to the poor (Quran: 3:273, 9:60,  Muslim #2261)

c.      even to those who are undeserving (Muslim #2230)

Activity 4:

           How should we give sadaqa?

Activity 5:

 

If you do not already have one, make and decorate a sadaqa money jar or sadaqa box.

Jars

 

Empty glass jars make great containers for holding all kinds of things: penny collections, marbles, pencils and other collectibles.

 

What you need:  Empty jar(s)

 Tissue paper, fancy napkins or wrapping paper

 Glue

 Paintbrush

 Small charms or jewels. (optional)

 Sparkles (optional)

 

 

 

What you do:

 

1. Wash and dry an empty glass jar.

 

2. Tear the tissue paper, napkins or wrapping paper into small pieces.

 

3. Hold the paper on the jar and use a paintbrush to apply glue on the paper, make sure to brush the glue onto to jar too, so the paper will stick. Continue working in this fashion until the jar is completely decorated.

 

4. If you want to add sparkles, cover sections of the jar with glue (on top of the paper) and apply the sparkles.

 

5. Allow to dry.

 

Collect money and items throughout the year in the box or jar and give regularly to those in need.

But remember, from our quote of today that you can and should give sadaqa at any time.

Duaa said after a gathering

 

‘How perfect You are O Allah, and I praise You.

I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except You.

I seek Your forgiveness and turn to You in repentance.’
