Daily debt to Allah

Did you know you have daily debt to Allah?  Every morning charity is due on every joint of the body.  There are 360 joints in the human body.  So you owe at least 360 acts of charity every single day.  If you miss a day or several days, does your debt accumulate over your lifetime? Every year amounts to just under 130,000 acts of charity.

Every time you glorify God (say Alhumdulillah) is an act of charity, every time you praise God (say Subhan’Allah), it’s an act of charity, and every time you declare Gods greatness (say Allahu’Akbar) is an act of charity.  Doing good is an act of charity, forbidding evil is an act of charity.

Hack: You could pray two rakats of Doha prayer in the morning (About 20 minutes after sunrise until about 45 minutes before Dhuhr prayer), this would be equal to everything mentioned above in reward.

Salat ul Doha (Duha)
Abu Dharr Radhiallahu ‘anhu reported: The Prophet (saw) said, “In the morning, charity is due on every joint of the body of every one of you. Every utterance of Allah’s Glorification (i.e., saying Subhan Allah) is an act of charity, every utterance of His Praise (i.e., saying Al-hamdu lillah) is an act of charity, every utterance of declaration of His Greatness (i.e., saying La ilaha ill Allah) is an act of charity, and every utterance of declaration of His Power (i.e. saying Allah Akbar); and enjoining M`aruf (good) is an act of charity, and forbidding Munkar (evil) is an act of charity, and two Rak`ats of Doha Prayers which one performs in the Forenoon is equal to all this (in reward).” [Muslim]
