Easy upgrades for your Sadaqah

Giving Sadaqah is a great way to earn rewards during Ramadan but giving Sadaqah Jariyah can maximise your blessings beyond your initial donation.

This is because Sadaqah Jariyah is used to deliver a lasting benefit over the longer-term.

‘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)


Here are a few Sadaqah Jariyah giving opportunities at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital this Ramadan:

Bag Valve Mask £100

A bag valve mask (BVM) is a handheld medical device used to deliver positive pressure ventilation to patients who are not breathing sufficiently or effectively. These don’t have a shelf life, though manufacturers recommend replacing them every five years. That’s five years or more of rewards for every life your BVM saves.

Donate £100

Medical Refrigerator £140

Medical refrigerators are one of the most important pieces of equipment in any lab. These appliances are used to store biological materials like fluids and other substances and maintain them in a controlled environment. They are vital to the diagnosis and treatment of thousands of cancer patients who seek healing at Shaukat Khanum Hospitals every year.

Donate £140

New Karachi Hospital £250

We are building a third hospital to bring hope against cancer closer to the people of Sindh and Southern Balochistan. Travelling to our hospital in Lahore is a long, costly, and tiring process. When battling cancer, every second counts. By giving to our new Karachi hospital this Ramadan, your Sadaqah Jariyah will deliver a lasting benefit to the local people in the area for years to come.

Donate £250 to KARACHI Hospital

Lead Apron £320

Lead aprons help reduce a patient’s exposure to diagnostic X-rays during medical imaging. By protecting the patient’s vital organs from potentially harmful ionizing radiation, these aprons are a great way to ensure that patients are safe. The lifespan of a lead apron is an impressive 10 years, so your generous Sadaqah Jariyah will be helping to protect scores of patients over that time.

Donate £320

Endoscopic Clip Applier £640

A clip applier is a type of instrument used in endoscopic procedures or operations. It’s used to apply surgical clips to body tissue, to hold them in place during treatment. These clips are designed to provide secure retention and efficient ligation, without causing any damage to the tissue or vessels. In other words, they help ensure successful endoscopic surgeries and procedures. Thanks to a single but generous Sadaqah Jariyah donation, countless patients could benefit from a new clip applier over many years.

Donate £640

Syringe Pump £1,280

Also known as a syringe driver, this small infusion pump allows us to administer small amounts of fluids to our patients through continuous, intravenous infusion. With a maximum volume of 50ml, these pumps are used to give medications with very small hourly volumes and are integral to the treatment plans at Shaukat Khanum Hospitals. Every year, they benefit hundreds of patients in our care.

Donate £1,280

Double Chamber Infusion Pump £2,340

This invaluable medical device is used to deliver fluids, such as nutrients and medication, into a patient’s body in controlled amounts to provide chemotherapy. With a shelf life of 7-10 years, your reward for a single generous donation in Ramadan could be multiplied tenfold.

Donate £2,240


Sadaqah Jariyah FAQs

1. Can I give Sadaqah Jariyah on behalf of the deceased?

Yes, you can. We understand the profound pain and sorrow that comes with losing someone dear and have created a special opportunity to give Sadaqah Jariyah in their name, allowing them to receive ongoing blessings for as long as Allah (SWT) wills.

Sa’d ibn ‘Ubaadah asked the Prophet (ﷺ): “O Messenger of Allah, 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.” (Bukhari)

2. What does Imran Khan Cancer Appeal use my Sadaqah Jariyah for?

75% of our patients are too poor to meet their basic daily needs, let alone the high cost of cancer treatment. We use your Sadaqah Jariyah to build hospitals and purchase essential medical equipment to provide cancer care to them for free.

3. How does giving Sadaqah vary from giving Sadaqah Jariyah?

Giving Sadaqah is a wonderful way to receive blessings from Allah (SWT) but giving Sadaqah Jariyah allows you to earn perpetual blessings for as long as your charity continues to benefit another. As an example, a donation you give to feed a cancer patient is considered Sadaqah, whereas donating towards building or furnishing a hospital is considered Sadaqah Jariyah, allowing you to receive ongoing rewards beyond your initial donation.

4. Why should I give my Sadaqah Jariyah to a cancer charity?

The Sadaqah Jariyah trusted to Imran Khan Cancer Appeal has delivered two cancer hospitals in Lahore and Peshawar and treated needy cancer patients over several decades. A third hospital is now being built in Karachi. The new Walk-in Clinic at the site is already improving screening and triaging in the local community. Your Sadaqah Jariyah, however big or small this Ramadan, will play a significant role in helping us achieve our next set of construction milestones.

Our founder has dedicated his life to improving the welfare of ordinary Pakistanis. He is unable to make an appeal for Shaukat Khanum Hospitals this year, but in his absence, we hope you will continue supporting our patients with your Sadaqah Jariyah and show that we still stand together in the fight against cancer.
