Give a gift of eternal reward to your deceased one!
Losing a loved one is like having the rug swept from under your feet.
We feel disoriented and disheartened. Often, hopeless.
We make plans for the day and do not think twice about how those plans can be taken away in the blink of an eye.
We consider the things we would be willing to give up for one more memorable moment with our loved ones.
It is amazing how we take life for granted. The tragedy never goes away.
You just learn how to cope with it and keep moving on. ‘I wish I could hear my dad… ‘I wish I could tell him how much I love him. These thoughts often occupy us.
But what if we could give them a gift we must always keep in mind that there is still hope.
Even after they have passed away, we still have the chance to let our loved ones know how much we care about them.
Nothing benefits man after he leaves this Duniya except for the rewards of ongoing charity.
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said ‘The best of what a man leaves behind are three: a righteous child who supplicates for him, ongoing charity; the reward of which reaches him, and knowledge that is acted upon after him.” (Sunan Ibn Mājah 237)
Power of Sadaqah
Being regarded as one of the most rewarding acts, the power of Sadaqah comes from the intention of the person performing it.
Sadaqah for parents and the deceased helps a person gain the benefits from this life and enjoy it in the next.
“Surely the men who give sadaqah and the women who give sadaqah and have advanced a good loan to Allah (SWT); for them, it will be multiplied and for them, there is a noble reward.” – The Holy Qur’an
A return on investment is not something you would normally associate with charitable donations. Nonetheless, Allah (swt) promises us that he will increase our wealth, and sustenance and bring us success in this life and in the hereafter when we give Sadaqah.
Sadaqah can protect one from hellfire and benefit a person in this life and the afterlife.
What is Sadaqa Jariya?
The ‘Sadaqah That Grows’.
Sadaqah Jariyah is a voluntary contribution that continues to give benefits to those who receive it long after the donor has gone. Although Sadaqah Jariyah is not mandatory, it reaps manifold rewards even in your afterlife.
The best form of giving a Sadaqah jariyah for parents or deceased parents is to provide an ongoing charity.
One can help in building a mosque that is less on funds and facilities.
Further, one can offer assistance in the education and living of children by contributing to the building of an orphanage or school.
One can also plant trees or assist in providing a clean supply of water.
