In Islam, many actions can result in immeasurable rewards, both now and in the afterlife. The word 'Sadaqah Jariyah' is commonly used to refer to these deeds. We will all perish at some point. Our acts of kindness will follow us into eternity. Let us make the most of our time here on earth and be ready for the journey ahead while we still can.
Here are five deeds of sadaqah jariyah that you can do to achieve immeasurable bounties from Allah in this world and the next.
The Construction of a Water Well
Today, there are a large number of individuals all over the planet who have very little or positively no admittance to clean, safe drinking water. You could give to an Islamic charity campaign like that, which aims to build water wells and hand pumps so that people in need can get clean, safe, and clean water. While it may seem like a relatively straightforward act, your contribution can have a profound impact on communities without access to water, and the benefits will last for as long as others enjoy them, a truly impactful sadaqah jariyah.
Become A Sponsor For A Child Or Orphan
Many people fail to remember that the children of today are the fate of tomorrow. To give a solid future, we should cooperate to guarantee each child's more right than wrong activity is satisfied. Participating in child sponsorship can ensure the child's future prosperity and the child's family will put the skills they acquire to good use in moving the community forward. Contributing to a child's education is one of the most popular types of sadaqah jariyah, as it can ensure the future of children and their families, and the community too.
Plant Trees or Transforming Areas of Land into Ranches
The act of planting a tree is Sadaqah Jariyah because the tree will provide shelter and possibly fruits for as long as it exists, ensuring you will receive a continuing reward.
“ A Muslim who plants a plant that a human or an animal consumes will receive the same reward as if he has given that much in compassion”. (Sahih al-Bukhari)
Partaking in the Construction of a Mosque, School, or Hospital
For significant rewards, many Muslims prefer to donate to the mosque construction. Similarly, you can contribute to a school or hospital building, which benefits others. Your bounties, in turn, will last as long as other people benefit from your generosity. You will get an award for every prayer you offer in the mosque, every person receiving treatment at the hospital, and every person learning in the school. A significant act of sadaqah will have an impact on numerous lives.
