Sadaqatul jariyah is ongoing charity (continuous rewards) 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)
Sadaqah Jariyah is the act of giving in charity that is continuous. From providing sustainable water solutions, that gives people clean water day after day, to sending a child to school to change their future, to supporting an orphan with regular sponsorship, giving Sadaqah Jariyah is a beautiful commitment.
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 humanitarian programmes around the world to help those in need. Our projects are designed to ensure that people struggling in poverty, with the effects of war or recovering from the destruction of natural disaster, can benefit and rebuild their lives with hope, dignity and independence.
Our education programmes deliver water and sanitation, renovate and repair classrooms and give vulnerable children the chance to attend and succeed at school.
Your support could provide a disadvantaged young person in Lebanon with vocational skills training and a path to employment. You could 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 who have fled violence.
Our education programmes are helping children and young people through all of these programmes and more across the world, including Cambodia, Bosnia and Sierra Leone.
With 2.1 billion people in the world without access to clean water your support to our water aid projects is vital.
In Gaza, Somalia, Jordan, Yemen and many more places around the world we are providing sustainable water solutions to save lives. 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 Rainbow Family programme facilitates sponsorship of 1400 orphaned children in multiple countries by giving them a stable income for food, healthcare and secure access to education. By meeting their needs and relieving their fears, your gift to a child can give them a chance at a brighter future safe from harm.
Our programmes ensure that women and children who are grieving and vulnerable can be supported as they adjust to life without their loved ones.
Your support could deliver livelihood skills programme, building independence and resilience for thousands across the world. Your support has the power to help them back on their feet, benefitting them and their families for years to come.
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.
