Sadaqah (charity) is the concept of giving charity voluntarily fi sabillilah فِي سَبِيلِ ٱللَّٰهِ‎ (for the cause of Allah).

Zakat and Sadaqah

While Zakat is a form of giving that is obligatory and due from every Muslim on a yearly basis, Sadaqah is entirely a voluntary form of charity which can be performed at any time of year, and any amount can be given and can be used for any project or programme which is of benefit to people.

A number of sayings of the Prophet (SAW) emphasize the benefits of giving Sadaqah.

An important concept within Islam is the idea of Sadaqah Jariyah – an ‘ongoing charity’.

The Prophet (SAW) said:
“When a person dies, all their deeds end except three: a continuing charity, beneficial knowledge and a child who prays for them.” [Muslim]

Therefore, many Muslims are eager to give charity which will continue to have benefits to people after their death and continue to earn the reward.

See Where Your Sadaqah Can Help Lives

Any form of charity that continues to have long-term positive effects on a vulnerable and poor community, can be considered a Sadaqah Jariyah: building homes, schools and hospitals; installing durable water systems; turning an area of land into a farm which continues to give crops for years to come; helping a poor family start a business which continues generating profit for future generations…

Within the International Aid Sector, the Islamic charitable giving term “Sadaqah Jariyah” is also referred to as a Sustainable Solution and encompasses the majority of the sustainable development programmes carried out by both Islamic and other NGOs today.

“Whoever relieves a believer’s distress of the distressful aspects of this world, Allah will rescue him from a difficulty of the difficulties of the Hereafter….” — Hadith

The Prophet (saw) said: “The one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in Paradise like this,” and he held his two fingers together to illustrate.
