On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (ra), 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 literally means ‘a continuous, ongoing, flowing charity’. While Sadaqah benefits the person, who receives it on one occasion, Sadaqah Jariyah continues to benefit the recipient(s) for a long time.

Thus, you will receive countless rewards for a single donation, even after you have passed away. You can even give on behalf of a deceased loved one, as they will continue to gain reward from it for as long as people benefit from it.

We have a diverse range of Sadaqah Jariyah projects in water, healthcare, education, livelihoods 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]

Giving water is a basic human right and fulfilling this right is an excellent Sadaqah.  Communities who don’t have access to clean water face unimaginable hardships; their health, education and livelihoods suffer, trapping each generation in a tragic cycle of poverty.

Almighty Allah mentions in the Noble Quran, ‘By means of water, we give life to everything’ [21:30].

By giving water, you can make a difference to families in need for many years to come. We have a wide variety of water projects you can contribute towards. From building solar powered community wells to providing underground water storage tanks, we are helping communities who are most in need and furthest to reach.
