This is a general term for all charities besides the Farz, Zakah. All acts of worship through financial expenditure are, by broader definition, classified as Sadaqah. Due to there being many types, they have been divided into the following two categories, both of which have separate rulings:

Sadaqah Nafilah:

This is Charity that is not binding in nature but is optional. This type includes alms given for the removal of difficulties, philanthropic (to give out of mercy to the less fortunate), the general giving of any Halal item to anyone, etc. This type does not need to be spent on the specified categories to be rewarding, nor does it have to be spent on Muslims, although if spent on poor Muslims, it would be more rewarding.
