BENEFICENCE.
(Arabic سماحةsamaha)

is commended by Muhammad as one of the evidences of faith (Mishkat, Book i. c. i part 3.)

Amr ibn ‘Abaratah relates: “I came to the Prophet and said ‘O Prophet, what is Islam?’ And he said, It is purity of speech and hospitality.’ I then said, “And what is faith?’ And he said. ‘Patience and beneficence.”
