The year of Sadaqah Jariya.
“When a person dies, all their deeds end except three: a continuing charity, beneficial knowledge and a child who prays for them.”[Muslim]
Sadaqah Jariya – “a continuous charity”
Due to the pandemic many of us have lost friends and family, and were not able to say our goodbyes. We are now left looking for ways to benefit the lives of those that have passed from this temporary world.
Sadaqatul jariyah is ongoing charity (continuous rewards) received by us that will not only benefit us in this life, but will continue to benefit us after our death.
Sadaqa is an act of charity in the moment, like giving someone food to eat. Sadaqah jariya will continue to benefit a person for many generations. Acts of this could include, building a well, a masjid or sponsoring an orphan.
On the authority of Sa‘d bin ’Ubadah (ra) that he said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! Umm (mother of) Sa‘d has died, so which charity is best?’ He [saw] replied, “Water (is best).” He said, ‘So he [ra] dug a well and said, “This (well) is for Umm Sa‘d”’. (Abu Dawud).
Al Khair is dedicated to helping the poor, the disadvantaged and the distressed as well as building lasting infrastructure so that families and communities can strengthen and rebuild. We remain resolute in providing help through the pandemic and beyond.
The month of Ramadan is time for spiritual reflection and to be grateful for what we have. It is also a time to get closer to Allah
Family is an essential element of human kind but there are 140 million children around the world who have lost their parents. Some now live with other family members or friends; others are less fortunate, condemned to a miserable existence on the streets.
Their loss, isolation and poverty leads to a lack of education, proper shelter, clothing and food as they try to survive with an absence of love or protection. These are children need care and nurturing but for many that is a distant hope.
AKF recognises that children are the future of a nation. We offer physical, mental, social and moral growth as well as personality development and education programmes. Our schemes are designed to replace some of what they have lost and provide a safe platform for them to understand that they are valued and have a future.
These orphans were struggling on the street until selfless volunteers from Al Khair Foundation spent time with them, feeding them and providing shelter to help them experience a childhood away from fear and despair.
More than 2.2 billion people are unable to access safe drinking water services and 4.2 billion people lack safely managed sanitation services, according to official UN statistics.
Clean water is essential to life but its supplies in developing countries are vanishing due to issues such as climate change. This poses a critical threat to health and basic survival.
In modern, developed countries, it is hard to comprehend that some children have to walk for hours to access clean, safe water for themselves and their younger siblings every day. Al Khair Foundation is a leading force in creating good, sustainable water supplies even in the most inhospitable and harsh areas.
Over the last year, Al Khair Foundation has continued to quench the thirst of villages and communities across the world. In Africa, Yemen and Gaza, we delivered more than 25,000 wash projects, benefiting hundreds of thousands of people.
We have also installed over 2,500 hand pumps in various districts of Sindh and Punjab of Pakistan, making the journey to get water so much more accessible.
Faith is an important comfort, particularly during tough times and building mosques is the ultimate act of Sadaqah Jariyah.
A mosque benefits the lives of people that visit who will receive rewards from Allah, even in the Hereafter. It also provides a safe haven for many people because, offering spiritual and religious support.
With the help of Al Khair Foundation, more than 700 Mosques have been built and renovated, creating a sanctuary where people can practice their faith, be fed, educated and talk through their problems.
