Narrated from Abu Dzar Radhiyallahu 'Anhu, that some Companions of Rasulullah Shallallahu 'Alaihi wa Sallam said to Prophet Shallallhu 'Alaihi wa Sallam,
"O Rasulullah, rich people have accumulated many merits (God's reward), they Shalat as we Shalat, they fasting as we fasting, but they give alms with their excess wealth (whereas we can't do it)."
He said, "Wasn't Allah has been gave you the way for alms? Verily every tasbih ("Subhanallah" or "Subhanallah wabihamdih") is alms, every takbir ("Allahu-akbar") is alms, every tahmid ("Alhamdulillah" or "Alhamdulillahirabbil 'alamien") is alms, every tahlil ("Laa-ilaha-illallaah") is alms, invite into the ma'ruf (good matters) is alms, preventing from mungkar (bad matters or God's prohibitions) is alms, and in your intercourse (have sex with your own couple) it's alms too."
They ask, "O Rasulullah, did the actions of one of us fulfill his biological desires (with his own wife) bring merits (God's reward) to him?"
He said, "Wasn't that when someone distributes it to the haram matters he will gets sin? Likewise if he distributes it to the halal matters, he will get the God's reward."
