Sadaqa (alms)(Redirected from Sadaqa)
Ṣadaqa (Arabic: الصَدَقَة) or alms refers to money or property donated to poor people for the sake of God. According to Islamic doctrines, it is not permissible to acquire money or property by every means, as it is not permissible to spend money in every way. One of the most recommended ways to spend one's money is to give it as "alms". According to verses of the Qur'an, there are two sorts of alms: obligatory and recommended. Qur'anic verses have also specified ways in which alms should be spent. According to hadiths, giving one's money as alms does not lead to a decrease in one's possessions; rather it leads to its increase.
