  Assalam alaikum,
   Abu Musa al-Ash'ari, may Allah be pleased with him, recounts that the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, once said,
        ''There is a Sadaqah due on every Muslim:
             If he cannot give because he has no money,
             let him work.Then he can support himself and
             give charity. If he is unable to work, then let
             him help someone in need of his help. If he
             cannot do this, then let him enjoin good. If he
             cannot do that, then he should do no evil nor
             harm others. (Even) this shall be written for
             him as Sadaqah''. (Ahmad)
Related to this, we read in Hadith Literature that there are many kinds of Sadaqah we can give, which carry lots of reward that money cannot buy, such as:--
  1. Sincere Advice:--This can be helping someone get
                              empolyed or putting them on ways
                              of becoming more displined and or-
                              ganized in daily life.
  2. Simple smile:--Giving that friendly smiling face to
                           your brother in Islam attracts reward
                           from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.
  3.Visiting the sick.
   4. Feeding the poor/homeless.
   5. Praying for Others:--The Messenger of Allah, sal-
                                 lallahu alaihi wasallam, said,
                              ''The quickest prayer to be ans-
                                      wered is one's supplication
                                      for his brother in his absence''
                                (Bukhari)--thus keeping others in
                               our sincere Du'a requires selfless-
                               ness...the very kernel of
