Please give Sadaqah Jariyah

Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said, “Verily, the believers are like a structure, each part strengthening the other,” and the Prophet clasped his fingers together. (al-Bukhari)

Sadaqah Jariyah is a special kind of ‘ongoing’ charity that benefits others for years to come. The giver of Sadaqah Jariyah reaps its blessings also, even after he or she passes away.

This year, we're uniting millions of people to make history again in Pakistan; we can't all afford to give big, but our Sadaqah Jariyah, combined, is bringing Shaukat Khanum Hospital Karachi to life one brick at a time.

Giving Sadaqah Jariyah to a hospital that provides healing is a rewarding way to reap the blessings of your charity. Your donation will help us support and treat thousands of patients every year, for years to come.

Be inspired and see what your donation could do.

Imran Khan - Shaukat Khanum Karachi Hospital Quote


Many of us can’t afford to give as much this year. That’s why we’re coming together to donate what we can towards a big cause with perpetual blessings.

When he was still a cricket star, Imran Khan laid the first bricks for Shaukat Khanum Hospital in memory of his beloved mother, who passed away after a difficult battle with cancer. Millions of people across Pakistan and the diaspora followed suit, entrusting him with their Sadaqah Jariyah.

29 years later, Shaukat Khanum Hospital has changed the face of cancer care in Pakistan, providing vital medical aid to the neediest patients through two JCI accredited hospitals in Lahore and Peshawar. Now with your Sadaqah Jariyah, we’re bringing free cancer care to Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city and the 12th largest globally.

Please give a little Sadaqah Jariyah to Shaukat Khanum Karachi. Reap the blessings of your charity in this life and the hereafter, Insha'Allah.

Give Sadaqah Jariyah


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)

In the same way, Imran Khan gave Sadaqah Jariyah on behalf of his late mother after she lost her battle with cancer, you too can give Sadaqah Jariyah on behalf of a loved one, living or deceased, so they receive ongoing blessings for as long as Allah (SWT) wills.

For over 29 years, we've been investing your Sadaqah Jariyah into healthcare projects which serve our patients and reward our donors. This year, send a blessing to someone you miss, through Sadaqah Jariyah.

IKCA Zakat Donations


Zakat has to be used in a very particular way to remain Shariah-compliant. At IKCA, we use Zakat exclusively to provide direct patient care for the needy at Shaukat Khanum Hospital. For every other expense, we use Sadaqah and Sadaqah Jariyah.

To treat cancer patients successfully we need medical equipment, hospital wards, doctors and nurses, and specialist drugs. All of these have to be purchased using your Sadaqah, not your Zakat.

The Sadaqah Jariyah you give is vital to the work we do. It has allowed us to build and equip two cancer hospitals that have treated, cured and saved thousands of lives. And it is helping us build a third hospital in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city.
