Brief Comments on Riyaadh al-Saaliheen #20

Definition of: "Sadaqah"

بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

[Sharh Riyaadh al-Saaliheen, pg. 2/111]

Shaikh al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله said: 

The Shaikh رحمه الله said:

Al-Sadaqah (charity) is: a voluntary donation by a person from his wealth to the poor, aiming with it the Face of Allaah (and His pleasure). And it has been named as “Sadaqah” because giving away of wealth for the sake of Allaah عز وجل is an evidence for the Sidq (truthfulness) of one’s Imaan in Allaah تعالى.
