Sadaqah is one of the best deeds that a person can do. It has many benefits, both in this life and the next. Allah (SWT) says: “And spend something [in charity] out of the money which We have provided for you before death comes to one of you and he says, “O my Lord, if only You would delay me for a brief term so that I could give charity and be among the righteous.” But Allah will not delay a soul when its time has come. And Allah is Acquainted with what you do.” (Al-Qur’an 62:10)
