Importance of Sadaqah Jaariyah

بِسْمِ ﷲِ ال َّ رحْمٰنِ ال َّ رحِیْمِ
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

In Islam, acts of charity hold immense significance. Among these, Sadaqah Jaariyah, also known as ongoing charity, stands out as a perpetual source of blessings.
Let’s go through the importance of giving Sadaqah Jaariyah:

Continual Stream of Goodness

Sadaqah Jaariyah is like a gift that keeps on giving. It’s a beautiful way to help others that brings blessings in this life and in the afterlife.
Whether it’s by improving your own blessings, honoring your parents, showing kindness to those who have passed away, or bringing people together, Sadaqah Jaariyah is all about creating lasting goodness that continues to benefit everyone involved.

Rewards in the Afterlife

Giving Sadaqah Jaariyah is like making an investment in a special account with Allah. He promises that the rewards will be multiplied. Just like it’s mentioned in the Quran, those who give charity, whether men or women, and those who lend to Allah by doing good deeds, will see their rewards multiplied and receive a noble reward.

Protection from Allah’s Anger and a Bad Death

The Prophet SAWS taught us about the special power of Sadaqah. It’s believed that giving charity can protect us from Allah’s anger and a bad ending.
This is because the state at which a person dies determines his standing with Allah. If Allah is displeased with a person, He grants him an evil and painful death. As charity is beloved by Allah, this makes the person gain Allah’s pleasure.

Easing Hardships and Averting Calamities

Sadaqah Jaariyah serves as a protective barrier during tough times. The Prophet SAWS recommended giving charity promptly, as it can prevent disasters from happening. When faced with challenges, giving Sadaqah helps us draw nearer to Allah’s boundless mercy.
Ibn Qayyim RH said: “Sadaqah has a strange effect in averting adversity.”

Gates to Paradise

Only the believers who showed generosity and gave charity in the name of Allah, whether to their parents, orphans, widows, the sick, or the needy, will be granted entry through Baab As-Sadaqah, one of the gates to Paradise. The reward for their selflessness awaits beyond these gates.
