Q: Is it more rewarding to buy gifts for one’s family or to spend that money in sadaqah? (for the person who can’t afford to do both)?


A: This depends upon need. If there is a greater need to spend in sadaqah then you should spend in sadaqah and also spend something less upon the family.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
