Sadaqah Jariyah

What is sadaqah jariyah?

Sadaqah jariyah is charity that continues to benefit people long-term and continues to earn the giver rewards even after death.

The difference it makes

When you give sadaqah jariyah, it will support a project of lasting benefit—something like:

  • Developing a clean water system
  • Building a school
  • Helping widows start businesses
  • Establishing farms
  • Building or equipping a health clinic

These are projects that communities will enjoy and appreciate for years, even generations. It can turn a family’s life around.

When a son of Adam dies, then his good deeds stop except for three: a Sadaqah Jariyah (continuous charity), a beneficial knowledge, or a righteous child who prays for him.
The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), as narrated by Muslim
