“When a man passes away, his good deeds will also come to an end except for three: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); a knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (for the deceased)” Narrated by Abu Hurairah, Sahih Muslim
When you provide a family with the seeds and tools to cultivate their own vegetables to not only feed them but also provide an income, this is known as Sadaqah Jariyah. This type of charity is continuous and its benefits are reaped by both the donor and receiver, even after the person giving it has left this earth.
At Muslim Aid, we facilitate many projects like this, from building a well so a whole village has access to clean water for life to providing schools with the books that will empower their youth. Help us to give Sadaqah Jariyah, and allow others the chance to build a better future.
