Share in Doing Good

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Share in [doing] good, even if [it’s only] by directing [others] to it.

You might not be able to teach people [yourself], so spread knowledge [that’s been taught by] the scholars. You might not be able to [give] charity, so direct [others who can] to those deserving of it. You might not be able to do many [good] things in your dealings with people, but you’re not going to be incapable of saying a good word [or] smiling sincerely, [as] in the ḥadīth: “A [friendly] smile from you directed at your [Muslim] brother is [counted as] an act of charity for you.”¹
