Islam: entering competitions?

Is it haram to enter a competition that you to donate to a charity to enter? 


Just for clarity I've read that entering competitions to win by chance is haram.

    No , if you donate to some charity to your free will , it is not Haram . Allah says " Spend in charity secretly or openly to encourage others for Charity , but charity shall be not for show of ". At the occasion of Tabuk War , the Prophet him self invited to a sort of competition to donate as charity in Madni Mosque and the companions donated more and more as per their capacity. Study charity on Gazwa i Tabuk for details
