Easy upgrades for your Sadaqah

Giving Sadaqah during Ramadan is a wonderful way to show our devotion and generosity. To maximize the benefits of our charity, we can opt for Sadaqah Jariyah instead, an investment that will continue to pay dividends in this life, and the hereafter, for the same amount!

A great example is the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital, which, thanks to the generous Sadaqah Jariyah of Imran Khan and other donors, has been providing free cancer care and healing to thousands of Pakistan’s poorest cancer patients for almost three decades.

‘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 some Sadaqah Jariyah opportunities to multiply the benefits of your gift to others, and multiply your rewards for years to come:

Big 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

Shaukat Khanum Karachi £250

This December, we’re opening the doors to our third and biggest cancer hospital for people in need from Sindh and Southern Balochistan. Making the journey to our hospital in Lahore from these regions is a long, expensive, and difficult process which often results in valuable time being lost. When treating cancer, every second counts, so by giving Sadaqah Jariayah to our Karachi hospital this Ramadan, you’ll be helping to heal poor cancer patients from this region 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 your generous donation, countless patients will benefit from the clip applier.

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 our cancer treatment here at Shaukat Khanum Hospital. 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 life expectancy of 7-10 years, your single donation during the month of Ramadan will be multiplied tenfold as it continues to help us treat many patients over the years.

Sadaqah Jariyah FAQs

1. Can you give on behalf of the deceased?

Absolutely! The ongoing rewards of the Sadaqah Jariyah you give will reach those who have passed away, providing them with blessings and ease in the hereafter:

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?

When you give Sadaqah Jariyah to Imran Khan Cancer Appeal, we use it to build hospitals for the poor and to purchase essential medical equipment to heal the sick. This helps us diagnose, treat, and support cancer patients for many years to come. Giving a Sadaqah Jariyah this Ramadan will allow you to multiply the blessings of your good deeds tenfold at the minimum!

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 is an even more special way to gain blessings that continue over a long period. 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. For example, a donation you give to feed a cancer patient is considered Sadaqah, whereas donating towards building or furnishing a hospital with medical equipment is considered Sadaqah Jariyah, thus allowing you to receive rewards for your Sadaqah Jariyah for as long as the needy benefit from your donation.

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

The Sadaqah Jariyah you give is vital to the work we do. It has allowed us to build two cancer hospitals in Lahore and Peshawar. Now we’re building a third cancer hospital in Karachi, again with Sadaqah Jariyah given by donors worldwide. Many of us can’t afford to give much this Ramadan. That’s why we’re coming together to give what we can towards a big cause with perpetual blessings. Combine your Sadaqah Jariyah with millions of others and become part of something special this year.

For nearly three decades, we’ve been investing Sadaqah Jariyah into healthcare projects with ongoing benefits to our patients, and ongoing rewards for our donors. This Ramadan, join us and reap the blessings of your charity in this life and the hereafter, Insha’Allah.
