The Arabic word means the charity given for the sake of Allah. Technically charity is to transfer the ownership in life without compensation seeking only the reward from Allah. The term alms is used to refer to Zakat al-Fitr (the donation made to the poor at the end of Ramadan). For further details see ISRA Compendium.
