Sadaqah Jariyah is the reward of ongoing charity received by us (for good actions and deeds) that will not only benefit us in this life, but will continue to benefit us after our death.
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); a knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (for the deceased)."(Muslim)
This year, we know so many of you have sadly lost the ones you love. Sadaqah Jariyah is the best kind of investment you can make for yourself or for a loved one who has passed away.
It is laying down the roots of great intentions in this world for them to bear fruit in the Hereafter. For your loved one who has already left this world, it is the ideal way to honour their legacy and to help raise their rank in the Hereafter by setting forward ongoing charity in their name.
As an act of charity that does not cease, Sadaqah Jariyah benefits both the one receiving and the one giving, with ongoing spiritual reward in this life and the next.
We provide many sustainable and long-term development programmes around the world to help those in need, ensuring that the most vulnerable people in the world can benefit and rebuild their lives with hope, dignity, and independence.
Give more than education – inspire more futures.
Our education programmes renovate and repair classrooms, train teachers, provide water and sanitation, and give vulnerable children the chance to attend and succeed at school, changing their future for the better.
Your support could:
Provide a disadvantaged young person in Lebanon with vocational skills training and a path to employment.
Help a child in Sri Lanka escape child labour and find a safer future in school.
In Bangladesh, you could help pay for teacher training to educate and protect Rohingya refugee children.
Our education programmes are helping children and young people across the world, including in Cambodia, Bosnia and Sierra Leone.
With 2.1 billion people in the world lacking access to clean water, your support of our water aid projects is vital and lifesaving.
In Gaza, Somalia, Jordan, Yemen and many more places around the world, we are providing sustainable water solutions. Your support can help pay for a solar-powered water station to serve thousands of people living in war-torn regions, or dig a well to benefit a whole rural community. You could pay for latrines and WASH facilities to reduce the spread of disease and protect people with the sanitation and respect they desperately need.
Supporting vulnerable women and children with regular giving is a lifeline. Our Child Community Sponsorship programme aims to ensure that every child under our care has long term security, nutritious food, clean water, healthcare and an accredited education that supports communities with a sustainable income.
Our programmes ensure that your donation will not support just one child, but it will benefit their families and the community.
There is so much more your commitment and generosity could do. One simple act of Sadaqah Jariyah has the power to change lives and the lives of generations to come.
Wills and Legacy – more ways to give Sadaqah Jariyah.
Muslim Aid has partnered with Farani Taylor Solicitors, experts in Islamic wills and inheritance, to offer our Wills and Legacy service for our generous supporters. Through the creation of an Islamic will, in keeping with Qur’anic traditions, you can choose to give to Muslim Aid and our broad range of appeals through Sadaqah-compliant donations.
What this means is even after you have left this world, you will leave behind a legacy that continues to work to help those who are most in need. Your generosity will mean that you will earn the rewards and benefits associated with Sadaqah Jariyah, even after you are gone.
