💰💸📦💰Difference between Sadaqah and Zakah❓❓❓
8⃣It is not permissible to give zakaah to kuffaar and mushrikeen.
8⃣Sadaqah may be given to kuffaar and mushrikeen.
Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And they give food, in spite of their love for it (or for the love of Him), to the Miskeen (the poor), the orphan, and the captive”
9⃣It is not permissible for a Muslim to give zakaah to his wife.
9⃣But sadaqah may be given to one’s wife.
These are some of the differences between zakaah and sadaqah.
📎The word sadaqah may be applied to all kinds of good deeds. Al-Bukhaari (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in his Saheeh: “Chapter: every good deed is a charity” then he narrated from Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Every good deed is a charity.”
🎓Ibn Battaal said: This hadeeth indicates that every good thing that a person does or says is recorded for him as an act of charity.
🎓Al-Nawawi said: The Prophet’s words “Every good deed is a charity” means that it is like charity in reward.
