“Charity (Sadaqah) extinguishes sin, just as water extinguishes fire.”
- Prophet Muhammad SAW Tirmidhi 614
In the current Coronavirus pandemic which is claiming thousands of lives and leaving millions at huge risk, Sadaqah is needed more than ever as it not only helps those in need but can also be given as a way of asking Allah to heal you when you are ill. If someone is ill, you can be a part of their healing and pay Sadaqah on their behalf. This generous act of giving combined with Du’a is mentioned in the Qur’an as a way of healing the sick.
Give your Sadaqah to the poor through us.
Sadaqah (voluntary charity) is a virtuous deed in Islam. In fact, it is considered as a proof of one’s eeman (faith). The Prophet (s.a.w.s.) sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said in the following authentic hadeeth:
Sadaqah is a form of voluntary charity which is highly emphasised in Islam as it carries great reward and brings numerous benefits.
Sadaqah Jariyah means ongoing charity and is a guaranteed recurring reward based upon good actions or deeds that keep on giving. Sadaqah in Arabic means ‘charity’ followed by Jariyah which means ‘ongoing’.
Sadaqah Jariyah is among the three deeds that will accompany you in the grave and it’s rewards will continue to benefit us even after death. Therefore, Sadaqah Jariyah donations are often made in the name of a deceased person so it may continue to benefit them in the Hereafter.

“When a man passes away, his worldly acts come to an end, but three acts; Recurring charity, knowledge (by which others) benefit or a pious son who prays for him will bear continuous reward (for the deceased).”
