Sadaqa (charity) is highly recommended for shielding oneself from calamities, epidemics, disasters, and lossess. Giving charity in the morning protects one from the misfortunes of the day and giving charity in the even protects one from calamities of the night. Fulfilling requests of others, i.e., giving way on a road, doing favours to others is also considered to be a kind of charity. We have been instructed by the Masomeen asws to give away charity prior to being inflicted by a misfortune. Few Verses from the Holy Quran and selected ahadith of Masomeen asws are presented related to the topic.
