Sadaqah Jariyah

The Prophet, upon him be peace, said: “Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

Sadaqah Jariyah


Sadaqah Jariyah implies a constant, streaming and progressing noble cause. It is one of the most compensating acts we can do in our lives as the advantages of giving this kind of charity can continue till after death. Jariyah  means flowing or continuing, Even the smallest gesture will benefit a person in the afterlife. “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) Allah (swa) has given us the opportunity to continue even when we are in the afterlife.

One of the best things about Sadaqah Jariyah is that you can give on behalf of a loved one who has passed away  and benefit them without reducing your own rewards. When a beloved has passed away, Giving a Sadaqah Jariyah on their behalf is one of the best things you can do for a loved one and something that they can benefit greatly from.
This is also the perfect way in Allah (swa) to honour the memory of that person. From the help of Hayat we are able to fulfil this need and help the ummah. In the holy quran it mentions “Guard yourselves against the Fire [of Hell] even if it be only with half a date-fruit (given in charity); and if you cannot afford even that, you should at least say a good word.” Both Sadaqah and Zakat are types of good cause in Islam, however they are not compatible. Huge numbers of us overlook that Zakat is a type of love. It is in certainty compulsory on each capable Muslim, a required ‘purifying’ of one’s riches, and not intentional cause. Though Sadaqah is a deliberate cause. The term originates from the Arabic root word ‘sidq’, signifying ‘earnestness’. So offering Sadaqah is viewed as a hint of genuine confidence. there is always baraka in what you give. This term is used in the arabic language meaning blessing Sadaqah is also allowed in the period of Ramadan, when endowments are increased exponentially, can mean receiving benefits up to ten times. In the event that that Sadaqah is Sadaqaj Jariyah, you could procure the gifts of your cause right now the great beyond for all the numerous years it keeps on profiting others.
