Sadaqah Jariyah for Rahala Khanom
Assalāmu ‘alaykum warahmatullāhi wa barakātuhu; I am raising funds for a Sadaqah Jariyah project in the form of Water Wells in Bangladesh on behalf of my late grandmother Rahala Khanom, may Allah SWT have mercy on her and grant her the highest place in Jannah.
Sadaqah Jariyah means a continuous and ongoing charity.
It is one of the most rewarding good deeds we can do in our lives as the benefits can be reaped now, and we can continue to benefit after we have passed.
Sadaqah Jariyah is a gift that not only benefits others in this life but also benefits us and our loved ones in the next. “When a person dies, all their deeds end except three: a continuing charity, beneficial knowledge and a child who prays for them.” When you give charity towards water wells you’ll be helping entire communities and you will give families direct access to clean and safe water every single day.
We take water for granted and this is one of the many reasons why I have chose this option.
The Prophet (saws) said that ‘The best form of charity is to give someone water (to drink).’ (Ibn Majah) Every pound donated, no matter how little, helps to make a difference.
