♥ Every good act is charity; and verily, it is one of the number of good acts to meet your brother or sister with an open countenance, and to pour water from your own bag into his vessel.
♥ Your smiling in your brother’s or sister’s face is charity; and your exhorting mankind to virtuous deeds is charity and your prohibiting the forbidden is charity; and your showing men and women the way when they have lost their direction is charity for you; and your assisting the blind, is charity for you.
