7 Good Deeds You Can Do with Snowfall

Muslims should strive to live a life of Ihsaan (excellence), and no opportunity for a good deed should be wasted, even if it is small.

Abu Dharr (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Do not belittle any good deed, even meeting your brother with a cheerful face”. (Muslim)

With colder climates and winter months, many countries are now expecting heavy snowfall.

Here are 7 good deeds you can do when it snows, some of which you can only do when there is snow!

1. Thank Allah

First and foremost, thank Allah for protecting you from the harsh weather conditions.

Thank Allah for giving you a warm, heated home, and thank Him for blessing you with warm clothes.

4. Clear the ice

When snow starts to melt, it turns into ice. This can make some areas of the pavement dangerous to walk on.

Grab a broom and clean the ice from the pavement in front of your neighbors’ homes and on your street.

Using a bucket of hot water can make the task easier.

5. Check up on elderly neighbours

If you have elderly neighbors, check up on them and ensure their heating is working and that they are warm.

Offer to buy groceries for them, as it may be difficult for them to go shopping.

6. Help the homeless

If you are aware of a homeless person in your area, buy them a warm blanket to help them through the cold weather and offer them a hot drink.
