Sadaqah meaning ‘charity’, is the concept of voluntary giving in Islam. The term stems from the Arabic root word ‘sidq’, which means sincerity. Described in the Holy Qur’an as ‘a beautiful loan’, sadaqah encompasses any act of charitable giving done out of compassion, love, friendship or generosity.

While Zakat is obligatory, Sadaqah is voluntary. Zakat, which is one of the five pillars of Islam, is to be given by all Muslims. Zakat is given out of the surplus wealth or earnings. … On the other hand there are no preconditions for giving Sadaqah.

Goodness is an essential part of human nature. A man feels inner satisfaction through committing virtuous deeds, like loaning a little money to the poor and helping out a crippled person on the way etc. Such acts of kindness and compassion are the reasons why mankind still exists on the surface the earth; otherwise it would never survive if all of them were cruel and spiteful. The Religion of Islam greatly emphasizes on the importance of doing good to others. Allah SWT says in the Holy Quran:

“…. And whoever volunteers good – then indeed, Allah is appreciative and Knowing.” [Quran, 2: 158]]
