Give Sadaqah Jariyah

Sadaqah Jariyah, meaning ongoing charity, is a gift that benefits even after the giver has passed away. 

Giving Sadaqah Jariyah today will allow you to reap the blessings of your charitable act in this life and the hereafter, as long as others continue to benefit from it. Sadaqah Jariyah can even be given on behalf of a loved one, living or deceased. So the ongoing rewards of the Sadaqah Jariyah you give here, will reached your loved one who has passed away, furnishing their hereafter with blessings and ease.

Sa’d ibn ‘Ubaadah asked the Prophet ﷺ, “O Messenger of Allaah, my mother has died when I was absent. Will it benefit her if I give in charity on her behalf?” Rasulullah ﷺ said, “Yes.” So he said: “I ask you to bear witness that my garden that bears fruit is given in charity on her behalf.” (Bukhaari)

When you give Sadaqah Jariyah to Imran Khan Cancer Appeal (IKCA), it’s not a one-off benefit.  Instead it helps build hospitals and purchase essential equipment to help us diagnose, treat and support cancer patients for years and years to come.

For 25 years, we’ve been investing Sadaqah Jariyah into healthcare projects with ongoing benefits to our patients and ongoing rewards for our donors.

Your trust and your charity helped us change the face of cancer care in Pakistan.

Why Give Sadaqah Jariyah this Ramadan?

The Sadaqah Jariyah you give is vital to the work we do. It has allowed us to build two cancer hospitals to date, which have treated, cured and saved thousands of people. Here’s what your Sadaqah Jariyah has achieved over the years:

This Ramadan, we need your Sadaqah, just as much as we need your Zakat. Here is why…


Sadaqah plus Zakat

Your Zakat allows us to provide free treatment to 75% of our patients at Shaukat Khanum Hospital, every year. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to save lives. But to treat cancer patients we need medical equipment, hospital wards, doctors and medicine. These are things we cannot purchase with Zakat.

Transparency and Shariah Compliance:

At IKCA, we are very particular about the disbursement of the Zakat funds you entrust to us. Thats why the Zakat we receive is utilised exclusively for providing direct patient care to poor patients. For every other expense, we use Sadaqah and Sadaqah Jariyah.

Charity does not, in any way, decrease the wealth and the servant who forgives, Allah adds to his respect; and the one who shows humility, Allah elevates him in the estimation [of the people]. (Muslim)

When Giving your Zakat this Ramadan, can you also spare to give a little Sadaqah Jariyah?

How does Giving Sadaqah and Sadaqah Jariyah benefit you?

IKCA uses the Sadaqah and Sadaqah Jariyah you give to save lives. But while Sadaqah affords you one-off blessings for your charity, Sadaqah Jariyah allows you to reap blessings for as long as your charity continues to benefit others. So an example of Sadaqah might be a donation we give to feed a cancer patient Whereas Sadaqah Jariyah is when we give towards building or furnishing a hospital with medical equipment which will continue to provide many sick people with healing for many years. When given on behalf of a loved on, the rewards of Sadaqah Jariyah will reach him/her whether alive or deceased. For those who have passed away, it eases and blesses their hereafter.

When a man dies, his good deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah [ceaseless charity]; a knowledge which [he has passed on and] is beneficial; or a virtuous descendant who prays for him. (Muslim)

Sadaqah is not to be confused with Zakat. Both are forms of charity in Islam, but they are not interchangeable. Many of us forget that Zakat is a form of worship. It is in fact obligatory on every able Muslim, a mandatory ‘cleansing’ of one’s wealth, and not voluntary charity.

And treat your sick by giving charity… (Al-Bayhaqi)

Whereas Sadaqah is voluntary charity. The term stems from the Arabic root word ‘sidq’, meaning ‘sincerity’. So giving Sadaqah is considered a sign of sincere faith. Among its liberal rewards to the giver is Baraka -the increasing of one’s wealth and health. Sadaqah given in the month of Ramadan, when blessings are multiplied exponentially, can mean reaping rewards up to ten-fold. If that Sadaqah is Sadaqah Jariyah, you could reap the blessings of your charity in this life and the hereafter for all the many years it continues to benefit others.

Good works protect from evil fates; charity in secret extinguishes the wrath of the Lord; maintaining family ties increases life span; and every good deed is charity.  (Al-Mu’jam al-Awsaṭ)
