Alms is one of the five pillars of Islam. It cleans properties of Muslims and enhances their moral. Supererogatory good and charity works, favors, grace and beneficence against humans and animals, and even nice words and behaviors pleasing humans are all considered alms. Alms given prevents troubles, enhances property and extends life.
Our prophet (s.a.v.) states that ‘Little alms prevents much trouble and extends life’. (Heysemi)
