Sadaqah

Floods in Pakistan have severe negative consequences on the lives of individuals and the developments of many areas as it could lead to crop destruction, loss of homes, and contamination of water. Without an income, home, and hope for the future, many of those who are greatly affected are children and the elderly who are sucked back into the cycle of poverty.  Resulting in an increased spread of infections and diseases, lack of schools or education, unclean water and a small quantity of food available.

Aa’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) reported that a man said to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him): "My mother has passed away, and if she could have spoken, she would have given something in charity. Will she receive a reward if I give something on her behalf?" He said, "Yes."

(Reported by al-Bukhaari, Fath, 1388)

Sadaqah Jariyah

 The role of Sadaqah in Islam is great, to be able to help the needy and giving charity to the poor is one of the best acts of worship and obedience in the eyes of Allah. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Those who spend their wealth (in Allah’s Cause) by night and day, in secret and in public, they shall have their reward with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve” [al-Baqarah 2:274] 

 What is the difference between Sadaqah and Sadaqah Jariyah?

Sadaqah (meaning charity) stems from the root word ‘sidq’ meaning sincerity, is a concept of voluntary giving in Islam.

 Sadaqah Jariyah (meaning ongoing charity) is a special charitable act that continues to benefit us or our family members even after death. 


How does Sadaqah work?

Sadaqah can be given to anyone in need, you can give Sadaqah to orphans, family members, distant relatives or even strangers. Unlike Zakat which is compulsory upon every Muslim who is liable, Sadaqah can be given by anyone, giving any amount as a donation, from a penny to billions pounds sterling. It can be used to purchase anything to help the needy, for livelihood, contribute towards any living costs or to benefit the donor after death.
