Narrated Safwan bin Salim: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“The one who looks after and works for a widow and for a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah’s Cause or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all the night.”

[Saheeh al-Bukhari (6006)]
