Hadith on Sadaqa: Cheerful face, guiding lost travelers are charity

Abu Dharr reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Smiling in the face of your brother is your charity. Enjoining good and forbidding evil is charity. Guiding a lost man through the land is your charity. Lending your eyesight to a man who cannot see well is your charity. Removing rocks, thorns, and bones from the road is your charity. Pouring your leftovers into the vessel of your brother is your charity.
