Our life-changing and sustainable projects enable us to make a difference to the lives of people for years to come, ensuring that we also join in the benefit of ongoing reward. This means you will receive countless rewards for a single donation, even after you have passed away. You can even give on behalf of a deceased loved one, as they will continue to gain reward from it for as long as people benefit from it.
Our tailored Sadaqah Jariyah projects benefit communities for generations to come facilitating long-lasting, positive change.
With Muslim Charity, your Sadaqah Jariyah could provide people with clean water for years to come, keeping them healthy, safe and happy. You can do this by building a handpump.
You could build a school and create a space for children to learn and grow, shaping the world of tomorrow.
As Sadaqah Jariyah, you could vow to care for orphans, and give them everything a parent would so that they achieve their full potential. You can sponsor an orphan and help provide an orphan with everything they need for a good life. By sponsoring an orphan, you will ensure they can go to school, eat good food, wear new clothes and have access to good healthcare.
Allah tells us in the Qur’an that the reward of spending in charity is like:
“A grain of corn which grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains” [Qur’an, 2:261]
Who is eligible to pay Sadaqah?
Unlike giving Zakat, Sadaqah is not compulsory. Muslims are free to give Sadaqah Jariyah gifts whenever they please, with no restrictions on the level of their financial contribution. Through making Sadaqah donations, donors know that they are making a difference in the world, benefitting their mindset whilst simultaneously improving their standing in the Hereafter.
How much should we pay for Sadaqah Jariyah?
Sadaqah Jariyah is a completely voluntary act of charity and there is no specification of how much should be given. This is amplified by the fact that whilst donating to eligible causes is the most common form of Sadaqah, you can also impart knowledge or give spiritual items as part of your Sadaqah Jariyah gift, too. There is no predefined rule for how much you give or what you do, so long as you are benefitting others.
When and where do we give Sadaqah Jariyah?
Sadaqah Jariyah can be given at any time during the year. Giving your Sadaqah gifts with Al Mustafa Welfare Trust is a brilliant way of ensuring that whatever you must give is making a difference. Whether you are looking to donate just a few pounds a month, or want to help build a school, we can utilise your Sadaqah contribution to make an impact on the most vulnerable individuals in the world. Whilst the benefits of Sadaqah and Sadaqah Jariyah stay with you into the Hereafter, they also impact you within your daily life, boosting your mood with the knowledge that you are helping those in need.
Is Sadaqah Jariyah the same as Zakat?
Sadaqah and Zakat differ greatly. Zakat is a compulsory donation which requires 2.5% of your annual wealth to be donated to charitable causes. Zakat is also determined by the level of wealth one has, as individuals must have wealth exceeding the Nisab in order to pay Zakat. There are also guidelines around who can receive Zakat, as they fall within eight categories. Zakat is paid on a yearly basis.
On the other hand, Sadaqah is a completely voluntary donation with no restrictions on eligibility at all. Whoever you are and whatever your wealth, if you choose to support others through a Sadaqah contribution, you can.
