“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.
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.”
