Abu Dhar al-Ghafari, may Allah be pleased with him, said:--
"The Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said: 'Sadaqah is prescribed for every person every day the sun rises.' I said: 'O Messenger of Allah, from what do we give sadaqah if we do not possess property?' He said: 'the doors of Sadaqah are Takbir (Allahu Akbar), Subhan Allah, Alhamdulillah, La-ilaha-illAllah, Astaghfirullah, enjoining good, forbidding evil, removing thorns, bones and stones from the paths of people, guiding the blind, listening to the deaf and dumb until you understand them, guiding a person to his object of need if you know where it is, hurrying with the strength of your legs to one in sorrow who is appealing for help, and supporting the weak with the strength of your arms. These are all the doors of Sadaqah. [Ahmad]
From this Noble Hadith, one does not need to have financial resources to earn reward of Sadaqah. There are other deeds that qualify as Sadaqah with Allah, Exalted is He. In addition to the above listed deeds, the following courtesies are also Sadaqah if we do them with the intention of pleasing Allah with them:--
1. To administer Justice between 2 people is Sadaqah.
2. To assist a man upon his mount, so that he may ride it is Sadaqah.
3. Every step taken(to Masjid) toward prayer is Sadaqah.
4. Your smile for your brother is Sadaqah.
5. Planting anything from which a person, an animal or anything eats is Sadaqah.
