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
