Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "Every Muslim has to give in charity."
The people then asked: "(But what) if someone has nothing to give, what should he do?"
The Prophet replied: "He should work with his hands and benefit himself and also give in charity (from what he earns)."
The people further asked: "If he cannot find even that?"
He replied: "He should help the needy who appeal for help."
Then the people asked: "If he cannot do (even) that?"
The Prophet said finally: "Then he should perform good deeds and keep away from evil deeds, and that will be regarded as charitable deeds."
- Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 2, Hadith 524
