Intention when giving sadaqah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: 1. When giving Sadaqah should we make niyyah that I am giving this sadaqah for the good health of my children and family members? Or just the niyyah of sadaqah is sufficient in helping ease our difficulties?

2. If sadaqah is given with the niyyah of good health/protection of ones family, will one get the sawab too?



1. Both niyyats can be incorporated.

2. Yes.

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