Sadaqah Jariyah means a continuous, flowing and ongoing charity. It is one of the most rewarding acts we can do in our lives as the benefits of giving this type of charity can be reaped in this lifetime and long after we have passed. Allah (swt) guarantees to record these continuous acts of charity in the following verse:
“Indeed, it is We who bring the dead to life and record what they have put forth and what they left behind, and all things We have accounted for in a clear register.” (Qur’an, 36:12)
By giving our Sadaqah Jaariya not only do we increase our wealth in this life, our reward in there hereafter and extinguish our sins but Allah SWT himself guarantees us a healthy return on our investment. Most importantly we can help those suffering and feel eternally fulfilled knowing that we have played a small part in a much-needed service to our fellow brothers and sisters around the globe.
