What is Sadaqah Jariyah?

Sadaqah Jariyah mean 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.

Why is Sadaqah Jariyah important in Islam?

Sadaqah Jariyah is a gift that not only benefits others in this life but also benefits us and our loved ones in the next.

(Hadith of the Prophet ﷺ, narrated by Muslim)

“When a person dies, all their deeds end except three: a continuing charity, beneficial knowledge and a child who prays for them.”

What are the benefits of Sadaqah Jariyah?

Insha’Allah, we hope that our sustainable water projects not only provide water for years to come, but also instil beneficial knowledge for entire communities that can be passed on to future generations.

Allah tells us in the Qur’an that the reward of spending in charity is like:

“A grain of corn which grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains” [Qur’an, 2:261]

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!

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.
