Sadaqah Jariyah

The Prophet, on him be peace, said: “When a human being dies, all one's deeds cease, save three: a Sadaqah Jariyah, [religious] knowledge [one leaves behind] from which others benefit, and a righteous child who prays for one” (Muslim)

How you can Help

About the Appeal

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 is a one-of-a-kind, lasting charity that brings continuous reward to those who donate it, as the charity supports those in need and future generations for a long time. This means that every time somebody benefits from your donation, you are rewarded, even after you are no longer living.

Children of Adam have a range of projects that are Sadaqah Jariyah applicable, from providing poor and drought-stricken areas with fresh safe drinking water, to caring for orphans or supporting Hifz students, or planting olive trees for needy farming families in Gaza and the West Bank. You can also build a masjid for poor communities to perform their prayers or provide an ambulance to an impoverished community. Sadaqah Jariyah can be made in your own name or in the name of a loved one.
