3. Ibn Abbas رضي الله عنهما said: "There are 360 joints & each of them owes sadaqa (charity) every single day. Every good word is sadaqa (charity). A man's helping his brother is sadaqa (charity). A drink of water, which he gives, is sadaqa (charity). Removing something harmful (thing) from the road is sadaqa (charity)".

4. Narrated by Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه Nabi ﷺ said: "There is a (compulsory) Sadaqa (charity) to be given for every joint of the human body (as a sign of gratitude to Allah) every day the sun raises. To judge justly between two persons is regarded as Sadaqa & to help a man concerning his riding animal by helping him to ride it or by lifting his luggage on to it, is also regarded as Sadaqa & (saying) a good word is also Sadaqa & every step taken on one's way to offer the compulsory prayer (in the mosque) is also Sadaqa & to remove a harmful thing from the way is also Sadaqa".
