On the authority of Abu Hurairah (ra) that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said, ‘When a person dies, his deeds come to an end except for three: Sadaqah Jariyah (a continuous charity), or knowledge from which benefit is gained, or a righteous child who prays for him’. (Muslim)

Sadaqah Jariyah means ‘a continuous, ongoing, flowing charity’. Sadaqah benefits the recipient once, while Sadaqah Jariyah continues to benefit the recipient(s) for a long time.

In this way, you will receive countless rewards for a single donation, even after you have passed away. You can even give on behalf of a loved one who is no longer with us, as they will continue to gain reward from it for as long as people continue to benefit from it.

We have a wide variety of Sadaqah Jariyah approved projects in education, water, livelihoods, health and many more.

Giving Water: The Best Sadaqah

‘The Messenger of Allah (saw) was asked, “Which charity is best?” He replied, “[Providing] water”’. [Abu Dawud]

We learn two important things from this hadith; the first is that we are encouraged to give Sadaqah Jariyah on behalf of a deceased loved one, the second is that the best form of Sadaqah Jariyah we can give is water.

Why water? In the Quran Allah SWT tells us:

 “And we made every living thing of water” (Quran 21:30). 

We use water for everything, from cooking and cleaning to farming and hygiene.

Communities who don’t have access to clean water face unimaginable difficulties; their health, education and livelihoods suffer, trapping each generation in a tragic cycle of poverty.

By giving water, you can make a difference to families in need for generations to come, bringing the entire community back to life!
