  1. Some of my fondest memories are of volunteering with my family. I dont have children yet, so I had reached out to my parents & brother. The more of us that were involved, the more beloved it was. Some of them:

    1. All 4 of us (mom, dad, bro, me) volunteered at a local masjid’s picnic event. We helped set up, distribute food & clean up too. Best part for me was seeing my dad BBQ with my brother for lunch. And then my cousin joined us also in distributing food. Then we played, visited the bazaar, prayed together. It was a blast!

    2. Community tree planting project. Parents provided us breakfast, we kids & friends helped plant trees in front of the community library. It was great dawa too with all the hijabs & beard & kufis :).

    3. Soup kitchen. This was from school. And i took my brother with me. It was good bonding experience for us too :)

    • The activities you and your family did together sound amazing. I’m sure you had a blast! Thank you very much for your input. :)

  2. assalamo elaikum

    mashaAllah sister may Allah swt give you reward , i am really impressed that you are doing so much in such age, may Allah make you soucrce of hidaya for others also,,ameen

    • Wa alaikum salam,

      thank you very much for your kind words, even though I don’t consider myself being that young. ;)

  3. The article is important and reminding. But the writing have not stress nuch emphasis on the aspect of PRODUCTIVITY especially to the head of the family. I think there is need for the writer to link up inbetween benefits of sadaqa that one can get here and here after.
    Jazakallahu khairan

    • Thank you very much for your feedback. I’ll try to take it into consideration when writing future articles, insha’Allah. :)

  4. Bismillah.
    MasyaAllah,keep up the good work Dear Sister.may Allah reward you & may Allah bless my children with your religous concerns. With respect to the above , I have a suggestion for individuals to do their bit by pooling resources from interested members of his/her community eg a person can collect whatever items from friends/relatives etc because many people ,as mere humans , ‘need’to be assisted into doing good things….

  5. Lovely article…. Mostly people feel helping some needy person with money is the only way of sadqa. But along with money when we spend time with them… How valuable that money had helped them…. N this personal involvement makes us also a better person. N thanks for showing people that a simple smile is also a form of sadqa. My dad has helped us develop these habits n i pray that for all his good teachings allah grant him paradise. Ameen

    • Assalamu Alaikum,

      I’m afraid there’s no Indonesian version of this article at this moment. Maybe in the future insha’Allah. :)

  6. Assalamu Aleykum Naima Asma, Greetings from East Africa, May Allah Reward you Well. It is a wonderful article and really I liked it, keep up the effort sister, we hope you all the best, In-shaa-Allah I will try to translate in my local language in order to spread your word in our local community.

    Khadar Dahir.

  7. Assalam-o-alaikum, JizakilAllah Khair. A very good article. Inculcating in our children to share their knowledge and old school books with children of our servants.

  8. We have a family sadqah box in our home! Its a really beneficial thing cuz no one except Allah knows how much money each person has placed inside so no one feels inferior if they put in less money.and the when the box,the money is given to a reliable charity centre

    • @Salman – Thanks for reaching out to ask your question. I think it would be best to consult an authentic scholar (of fiqh/Islamic jurisprudence) on that matter as he’d have the expertise/knowledge to advise you. In case you may not know of one, you may ​alternatively ​consult ​authentic fiqh Q&A websites​ such as​:

      I hope this helps. May Allah help you find what you’re looking for. Ameen.
