What is Sadaqah Jariyah?
Sadaqah Jariyah is an ongoing form of charity that has long-lasting effects that benefit people on multiple occasions. In Arabic, the word jariyah translates to “flowing” and sadaqah translates to “charity”, so Sadaqah Jariyah literally means flowing charity!
It is a continuous form of giving that provides for people long after we have gone to the Hereafter, providing us with never-ending rewards for our deeds. This form of flowing charity has been called by many names – unending charity, perpetual charity, ongoing charity, running charity – but they all reflect the true nature of this blessed way of giving.
