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’. While Sadaqah benefits the recipient once, Sadaqah Jariyah continues to benefit both the giver and the recipient(s) for a very long time.

By giving Sadaqah Jariyah, you receive countless rewards for your single donation even after you pass away. You can even give Sadaqah Jariyah on behalf of a loved one who is no longer with us, so they too can continue to gain rewards for as long as people continue to benefit from the project that you choose.

The Best Sadaqah is Giving Water

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

[Abu Dawud]

From this hadith, we learn that the best form of Sadaqah Jariyah we can give on behalf of a deceased loved one is water. This is because water is essential to life and as we use it every day, for everything from cooking and cleaning to farming and staying clean.


Almost 800 million people around the world do not have access to clean, freshwater. These communities face unimaginable difficulties; their health, education, and livelihoods suffer, and they remain trapping in tragic and never-ending poverty.

By giving water, you can make a huge difference to entire communities and even future generations to come.

Q. What are the benefits of Sadaqah?

A. Sadaqah is ultimately an investment for the hereafter but there are many other benefits too. The Prophet (saw) said, ‘Charity extinguishes sins just as water extinguishes fire’. (Tirmidhi).

Allah (swt) promises that those who give Sadaqah will not lose anything. Instead, the more you give for the sake of Allah (swt), the more Allah (swt) will give to you. He (swt) has promised that he will multiply the reward of giving charity by at least 700 times:

’The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed of grain, which grows seven ears; in each ear is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies His reward for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and all-Knowing’. (Qur’an, 2:261)

Don’t miss out on these amazing blessings and take advantage of this divine promise today.

"Give charity (sadaqah) without delay, as it stands in the way of calamity." [At-Tirmidhi]
