واخرج البخاري في الادب المفرد عن ابي سعيد الخدري رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال ‏”‏ايما رجل مسلم لم يكن عنده صدقة فليقل في دعائه، اللهم صل على محمد عبدك ورسولك، وصل على المؤمنين والمؤمنات، والمسلمين والمسلمات، فانها له زكاة‏”‏‏.‏

Abū Sa‘īd al-Khudrī related that the Prophet said:

If a man is without anything to give in charity (sadaqa) let him say in his supplication, ‘O Allāh send prayers on Muhammad, your servant and Messenger. And send prayers on the Believers and the Muslims.’ Then it will be for him poor-due (zakah).

[Al-Bukhārī related it in Al-adab al-mufrad.]

Peace and Blessings upon the Prophet, his Family, and his Companions
