In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
Jabir (MAPH) reported that he heard the Messenger of Allah (May Allah exalt his mention and protect him from imperfection) saying: “Every good deed is charity”. (Al-Bukhari)
Muslim has reported the same on the authority of Hudhaifah (MAPH).
Commentary: We come to know from this Hadith that whatever good action and deed is done by a Muslim, he gets a reward of Sadaqah on it. The word Ma’ruf stands here for every virtue and noble deed. Renunciation of evils is also a virtue (Mar’uf).
MAPH: May Allah be pleased with him
