Sadaqah Jariyah

The Messenger (ﷺ) was asked, “When a person dies, all their deeds end except three: a continuing charity, beneficial knowledge and a child who prays for them,” (Hadith, Muslim).

Sadaqah Jariyah literally means a continuous, ongoing, flowing charity’. While Sadaqah benefits the person who receives it on one occasion, Sadaqah Jariyah continues to benefit the recipient(s) for a long time.

What is Sadaqah Jariyah?

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 of giving Sadaqah Jariyah can be reaped now, and we can continue to benefit after we have passed.

“When a person dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three: ongoing charity (Sadaqah Jariyah), knowledge that is benefited from, and a righteous child who prays for him.”

(Sahih Muslim)

When you give to a Sadaqah Jariyah projects you reap endless rewards. It is one of the most beautiful forms of charity since it provides benefit – for both the giver and receiver – for years to come.

What is the difference between Sadaqah Jariyah and Sadaqah?

Sadaqah Jariyah is long-term and Sadaqah is short-term. For example, feeding an orphan for one day may only satisfy their hunger for that day but sponsoring them would enable them to be healthy throughout their life.

Water projects are a true example of how one act of charity keeps multiplying, bringing more and more benefit and reward. When a community has water, we see families growing food, healthy children able to attend school, clean hospitals treating patients safely.. and the list goes on!

The gift that keeps on giving

Sadaqah Jariyah is a beautiful, sustainable and ongoing form of charity. Giving it is about creating a legacy of joy and blessings, for yourself and for others.

1. Water for Life

Provide clean and safe drinking water to impoverished communities tackling thirst and stopping the spread of disease.

From water pumps to water purification plants, we are making sure that families all over the globe are drinking freshwater, without fear of waterborne diseases. Our water projects are currently active in Syria, Yemen, Gaza and Rohingya, where our teams on the ground are diligently working to dig wells equip with hassle-free water pumps, set up water purification plants to filter clean water to rural communities and delivering barrels of fresh water to impoverished families.

2. Orphan Fund

An estimated 140 million children classified as orphans, 15.1 million have lost both parents. The evidence clearly shows that the vast majority of orphans are living with a surviving parent grandparent.

The Prophet (saw) said The Prophet said: “If you want to soften your heart, then feed the poor and pat the head of the orphan.”

3. Building A Masjid

Mosques are at the heart of every Muslim community around the world and they play a pivotal role in education, daily worship and special occasions. Indeed, the first act of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) upon his arrival in Medina was to build a mosque.

Whoever builds a Mosque for the sake of Allah (SWT), Allah (SWT) will build for him likewise in Paradise.

Mosques serve an important function in the Muslim community, but sadly, many Muslims simply do not have access to a local mosque. Some communities have lost their mosques due to conflict or a natural disaster, while many rural areas never had a mosque. The long journey to the nearest mosque is difficult or impossible for many of those in the greatest need – particularly the sick and elderly.

Orphan Fund

For vulnerable children without families around the world, orphan sponsorship offers a way out of the neglect, abuse and exploitation they face. It gives them a chance to escape their poor living conditions by equipping them with appropriate shelter, education and support so they can go on to build a life that is full of promise and potential.

The Orphan Fund provides support and assistance on a long term basis. We do not operate an individual orphan sponsorship program.
