Narrated Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him):

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said,

“Charity is obligatory everyday on every joint of a human being.  If one helps a person in matters concerning his riding animal by helping him to ride it or by lifting his luggage on to it, all this will be regarded charity.  A good word, and every step one takes to offer the compulsory Congregational prayer, is regarded as charity; and guiding somebody on the road is regarded as charity.”

[Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 141]
