Smile For Life Childrens Charity

We were approached by Benjamin’s family when they were desperate for support. Benjamin suffers from many complex disabilities. Unable to walk, talk or feed himself, his parents were struggling to carry him upstairs to his bedroom as he got older. Their local council refused to adapt their home so his parents set about planning to create a downstairs bedroom for Benjamin. We were delighted to help create a campaign to get the funding required to complete the project and in November 2018 the work began on Benjamin’s dream room! The downstairs bedroom has changed the lives of all of the family, providing a safe place for Benjamin to sleep, a ground floor space that he can be wheeled into, rather than carried, and supervised when he needs regular rest and therapy.

UAE Friday sermon: smiling is an act of charity

Prophet Mohammed said “Smiling in the face of your brother (another) is an act of charity,” which means that smiling at others is regarded as a good deed and carries the same weight as giving to charity, mosque-goers will be told on Friday.

This is because smiling reflects purity of soul and beauty of the spirit, the sermon will say.

Smiling is also an expression of happiness and a means of spreading love among people.

Worshippers will be told that smiling has many positive effects and was part of the guidance of all the prophets and messengers.

It is said Prophet Mohammed always smiled, even until the very last minutes of his life. About such kind demeanour, Anas, narrated, “The Muslims were offering the Fajr prayer on Monday — the day of the Prophet’s demise. When the people aligned (in rows) for the prayer, the Prophet pbuh lifted the curtain of his house and started looking at us and was standing at that time. His face was (glittering) like a page of the Quran and he smiled cheerfully.”

A genuine smile is the fastest method of communication and is the sincerest of expressions that brings people closer together, the sermon will say. Thus, a smile has a positive impact on the community.

The power of smile can also be seen in family life as many families restored their happy and stable life thanks to cheerfulness and smiling faces of their members.

Trade is also an arena where smiling can have positive impact on the growth of business when a business owner treats customers gently and meets them with a smile.

Truly, a smile sends out a signal of love and sharing. This is why a scholar said, “When you are with people (in a gathering), you should smile often and meet them with a cheerful face.”

Charity smiling is

Did you know that smiling has become a science and an art form required for the improvement of relationships both social and economic? It’s also necessary for diplomatic relations between individuals, communities, and countries respectively.

At the beginning of the 20th century, laughter was officially acknowledged as a science it was called “The Psychology of Laughter.”


Gérard Jugnot, the French actor, once said, “Laughter is like a windshield wiper, it doesn’t stop the rain but allows us to keep going.”

Smiling in their words

Stressing the significance of smiling, Voltaire said, “Smile melts ice, installs confidence and heals wounds; it’s the key of sincere human relations.”

In a similar vein, the great playwright and poet, William Shakespeare said, “It’s easier to get what you want with a smile than with the tip of the sword.”

Notably, a famous Chinese proverb runs as follows, “A man without a smiling face must never open a shop

Why? Because such a man will never be able to attract others’ attention, conquer their hearts, or make them buy more!

Smiling in the Prophetic Sunnah

5 Prophet's Hadiths About Smiling - About Islam

Prophet Muhammad was always cheerful and bright-faced. According to historians he always kept smiling in the face of his Companions to the extent that Abdullah ibn Al-Harith ibn Hazm said, “I have never seen anyone who smiles more than the Prophet does.” (At-Tirmidhi)

Jarir ibn Abdullah said: “Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) never refused me permission to see him since I embraced Islam and never looked at me but with a smile” (Sahih Muslim).

Moreover, Abu Hurairah narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: “You cannot satisfy people with your wealth, but satisfy them with your cheerful faces and good morals” (Abu Ya`la and Al-Hakim; Authentic hadith).

Abu Dhar narrated from the Prophet that he said, “Do not disdain a good deed, (no matter how small it may seem) even if it is your meeting with your brother with a cheerful face” (Sahih Muslim).

☺️And, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Smiling in your brother’s face is an act of charity” (At-Tirmidhi; Declared Authentic by Al-Albani).

☺️Amazingly, smiling is equal to spending in the cause of Allah, without having to pay even a penny. This is, indeed, a Prophetic solution to those who desire to give charity but cannot afford it.

☺️This is an endless wellspring, if we just know how to use it. If we use smiling, wisely and sensibly, we can win over hearts. They will be more open and prepared to listen to what we share about our beautiful faith.

A smile, a cure-all

Non Muslim Mother

Allah the Almighty says in His Ever-Glorious Qur’an what means,

{Until, when they came upon the valley of the ants, an ant said, “O ants, enter your dwellings that you not be crushed by Solomon and his soldiers while they perceive not.”

So [Solomon] smiled, amused at her speech, and said, “My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to do righteousness of which You approve. And admit me by Your mercy into [the ranks of] Your righteous servants”} (An-Naml 18-19).

How great is a smile when it comes from someone strong and is offered to someone weak? Or when an older person smiles at someone young? And how powerful is that smile when it’s offered from the ruler to the ruled?

How amazing is a smile when it comes in a time of disaster, crisis, or panicking?

That was the smile of Prophet Suleiman. His smile was filled with tenderness, passion, and admiration of what the little ant said and did. It was a smile that alleviated the tension of the situation. It restored safety, security, tranquility and peacefulness to everyone.

Keep smiling

So, All we have to do is keep a beautiful smile on our face at all times.

However, a senseless mechanical smile is not meant here; a fake smile cannot deceive anyone.

What is meant here, is the genuine smile that stems from the depth of one’s heart.

The smile which penetrates the walls of others’ hearts and settles there as a crowned king.

The smile that indicates and shows one’s good character.

Abdullah ibn Al-Mubarak once explained regarding good character, “It is a smiling face, doing one’s best in good, and refraining from harm” (Jami` at-Tirmidhi).
