In a hadeeth related by Abu Dharr radi Allaahu 3Anhu that  the Prophet Sall-Allaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said:

لا تحقرن من المعروف شيئا ولو أن تلقى أخاك بوجه طلق

“Do not think little of any good deed, even if it is just greeting your brother with a cheerful countenance.” (1)


In another hadeeth, he Sall-Allaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said:

تبسمك في وجه أخيك لك صدقة

“To smile in the face of your brother is charity given on your behalf.” (2)

smile charitySo cheerful was the countenance of the Prophet sall-Allaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam that one of his Companions, Jareer bin 3Abdullaah said:

“Since the day I accepted Islaam, the Messenger of Allaah Sall-Allaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam would never meet me without a smiling in my face.” (3)

A smiling face indicates a good quality and causes blessed results – it indicates that one’s heart is free of rancour and it causes affection to grow between Muslims.
