What is Sadaqah Jariyah?
Sadaqah Jariyah, which literally translates into continuous charity, is a form of charity which leads the giver to receiving continuous reward in this world, as well as in the life hereafter.
According to a Hadith:
"When a man passes away, his good deeds will also come to an end except for three: Sadaqah Jariyah, a knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (after his death)." [Sahih Muslim]
Sadaqah Jariyah is an act of kindness, compassion and generosity. It can take various forms such as providing education or water resources, building a mosque, making donations to a hospital, or financing orphans etc. Sadaqah Jariyah, like any other form of charity, does not only ensure reward from the Almighty, but also is a great act of empathy. The purpose of Sadaqah Jariyah is serving humanity and providing relief to the deserving human beings by addressing their needs. We at Syria Relief are working to help the people of Syria in a number of ways. Your donations fuel our efforts and keep us motivated to go the extra mile and do our part for improving the living conditions of conflict-hit Syrians.
Have faith this Ramadan and give Sadaqah Jariyah.
“Indeed, the men who practice charity and the women who practice charity and [they who] have loaned Allah a goodly loan - it will be multiplied for them, and they will have a noble reward.” [57:18]
Plant an olive tree this Ramadan
Olive trees have provided food, oil and medicine for hundreds of years. They are a dietary staple for many Syrians and are also a great source of income for a family in poverty. Agricultural farming is one of the best ways of ensuring a sustainable long-term income for the most desperate families in Syria.
An olive tree can live and provide for up to 2,000 years, sow the seeds of Sadaqah Jariyah by planting an olive tree, provide for those in need and earn rewards for generations long after you are gone.
Lay down the roots of a Sadaqah Jariyah today. A donation of £10 can lift a family in Syria out of poverty today and for generations to come.
