Allah says: "Mankind is a single nation,

Allah says: "Mankind is a single nation,

"O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into races and families so that you may know each other. The most honoured of you in Allah's sight are those who best keep their duty." (2:213) & (49:13)

Allah has commanded the Muslims to help one another saying:
“Help you one another in virtue and piety” (Surah al-Maaidah:2)
“Whoever performs a good act will receive ten times as much.” [QUR’AN 6:160]

►If poverty of someone discourage you in helping him or her because of lack of money for the service or a material, it is indeed satan who discourage you.
►Just say that you are doing it for the Pleasure of Allah.
In return you shall be blessed by Allah, as you are helping His creatures as well as your fellow. Money is for worldly uses, but food for soul is righteousness to come to Allah.
REMEMEBER Allah advices us: "Do no favour seeking gain." (74:6)

If the person give you blessings, it is the gift he or she can afford, take it by smilling. Smiling at your brother or sister is considered sadqah. Even spending on your family, which you do anyway, for the sake of Allah, is a sadqah.
If only everyone could respect the value of helping humanity & the power of a true smile (it is indeed a forgotten sunnah)

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:
"Every Muslim has to give in charity." The people then asked: "(But what) if someone has nothing to give, what should he do?" The Prophet replied: "He should work with his hands and benefit himself and also give in charity (from what he earns)." The people further asked: "If he cannot find even that?" He replied: "He should help the needy who appeal for help." Then the people asked: "If he cannot do (even) that?" The Prophet said finally: "Then he should perform good deeds and keep away from evil deeds, and that will be regarded as charitable deeds." - [Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 2, Hadith 524]
AND
"Whoever spends any money for Allah, his reward will be for seven hundred times of that amount." [Tirmithi]

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) also said:
“Every believer who consoles his brother in distress will be dressed by God in an apparel of honor on the Day of Resurrection.” [Fiqh-us-Sunnah:V4N80a]

"The believer's shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity." -
[Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 604] ALLAHU AKBAR!

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) once told his wife: “Do not turn away a poor man..even if all you can give is half a date. If you love the poor and bring them near you…GOD will bring you near HIM on the Day of Resurrection.”
[Al-Tirmidhi:1376]

Allah talks about the true believers who seek His pleasure alone:
'And the believers, men and women, are protecting friends of one another, they enjoin the right and forbid the wrong' (9:71)

It is more fitting that they please Allah and His Messenger if they are truly believers. (Al-Tawbah, 9:62)

"(The true believers are those) in whose wealth there is a known right for the beggar and the destitute." (70:24-25)

"They (the true believers) give food, out of love for Allah, to the poor, the orphan and the slave, saying: We feed you only for Allah's pleasure - we desire from you neither reward nor thanks." (76:8-9) SubhanAllah!

"The most honored by Allah amongst you are those best in taqwaa."
(Qur'an S 49:13)

If you want to seek the pleasure of Allah, read this dua:
“Illahi anta maqsudi wa ridaka matludi”
Oh Allah, You are my Destination and Your good pleasure is what I seek. Ameen.

"Glory be to

He is free from what they ascribe to Him![37:180]
