Spend Gold and Silver

Sahih Muslim (15)

وعن أبي الدرداء، رضي الله عنه قال‏:‏ قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ ‏”‏ألا أنبئكم بخير أعمالكم، وأزكاها عند مليككم، وأرفعها في درجاتكم، وخير لكم من إنفاق الذهب والفضة وخير لكم من أن تلقوا عدوكم فتضربوا أعناقهم، ويضربوا أعناقكم‏؟‏‏”‏ قالوا‏:‏ بلى، قال‏:‏ ‏”‏ذكر الله تعالى‏”‏‏.‏ رواه الترمذي وقال الحاكم أبو عبد الله إسناده صحيح‏.‏
Abud-Darda (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Shall I not inform you of the best of your actions which are the purest to your Rubb, which exalt you to the high ranks, which are more efficacious than spending gold and silver (in charity), and better for you than you should encounter your enemies whom you will smite their necks and they will smite your necks?” They said, “Certainly.” He (ﷺ) said, “Remembrance of Allah the Exalted.”

[At-Tirmidhi].
