“When a person dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three: ongoing charity (Sadaqah Jariyah), knowledge that is benefited from, and a righteous child who prays for him.” (Sahih Muslim)
Sadaqah Jariyah is one of the most beautiful forms of charity since it provides benefit – for both the giver and receiver – for years to come.
Because at Human Appeal we’re not just about providing food, water and shelter in emergencies; we want to give people the means to support themselves. We want to build self-sustaining communities that are resilient against disasters.
That’s why Human Appeal’s Sadaqah Jariyah projects are designed to benefit families and communities for years to come, ensuring that you – or your loved ones – can reap the benefits of the ongoing charity long after the donation is complete, and even after you are gone.
You can support our large-scale Sadaqh Jariyah projects that transform communities through providing sustainable water sources, or choose to provide livelihood support to change the lives of one family.
Provide a life-changing, revolutionary form of charity and transform lives
Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He will multiply it for him and he will have a noble reward? (57:11)
Istiaq was one of the first people that Human Appeal helped to train as a beekeeper. Today, he is well known in his community for his medicinal herb knowledge, which he often produces using honey. Before opening up a bee farm, Istiaq relied on the small income he received as a teacher.
He told us,
“I couldn’t feed my children and fulfil their needs, because a teacher’s income was very low, but since this project I’ve been able to save to purchase a motorbike and I also made improvements to my house.”
