Hadith on Sadaqa: Charity due on every joint of the human being

Ibn Abbas reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The son of Adam has three hundred and sixty joints, and charity is due upon each one of them every day. A kind word that a man speaks is charity. A man helping his brother with something is charity. Giving someone a drink of water is charity. Removing harmful things from the road is charity.
