Sadaqa Jariyah Leave a lasting legacy

Why do Muslims give Sadaqah Jariyah?

Helping those who are less fortunate is a key tenet of the Islamic faith. Muslims give Sadaqah Jariyah because it helps our sisters and brothers in humanity, and in doing so, we gain the reward of Allah (SWT). Muslims are encouraged to give Sadaqah Jariyah for as long as the donation continues to benefit others. The donor will reap the reward of it, whatever it may be. This could last beyond the donor’s lifetime, and potentially even generations.

Examples of Sadaqah Jariyah 

Sadaqah Jariyah is any form of ongoing charity (gesture or donation) that benefits others. Examples include building an orphanage or a medical care center.

Here are seven examples of Sadaqah Jariyah:

  • Teaching someone a valuable skill
  • Building an institution of good, such as a mosque, school, or hospital.
  • Building a means of provision, such as a well.
  • Teaching someone valuable knowledge, through books, lessons etc.
  • Planting a tree
  • Creating farmland
  • Creating a home or shelter for people or animals
    Inventing something of use for people or animals
