On 30 March 2018, the ISDEV Director's Tarbiyah brings the title of 'Restoring the Practices of Sadaqah'. Associate Prof Dr Zakaria discussed the various forms of Sadaqah that can be practiced by ISDEV fraternity. He focuses on voluntary donations. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Zakaria quotes the verse 103 from Surah At-Tawbah which means:
"Take, [O Muhammad], from their wealth, the charity you cleanse with it and cause them to increase, and pray for them. Indeed, your prayer is a guarantee for them. And Allah is Hearing, Knowing".
Based on these verse, Assoc. Prof. Dr Zakaria attributes the benefits of Sadaqah as purifying the soul, facilitating the affairs and healing the illness for the charitable people. The approach proposed by Assoc. Prof. Dr Zakaria in restoring this practice is through financial contribution in Waqf and ISDEV fund. The practice of charity also can be restored through the contribution of the workforce with simple 'gotong royong' and willingness to spread aid. In fact, smiles and greetings are also one of the way to restored charity.
