This article focuses on which benefits can be gained in the way of the communal and individual social assistance. Islam makes the community as a virtuous community that is its men’s duty to compete in good and charity they do not compete in earning property. The only thing that religion wants to be a believer to behave according to conscience of responsibility. This is the clearest word that qualifies Muslim in the Qur’an. According to this, behaving conscientiously is a part of the conscience of responsibility and Qur’an wants to make it. So behaving according to God’s order is very important in the context of soul calm. Social assistance is a very important part of this responsibility. Social assistance becomes a source of happiness and spiritual calmnes in individual and social ways both.
