Pouring Sand


Do not think your Sadaqah is just for the needy.. for it is you who is also in need..

"The Prophet (saw) said, 'The believers shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.' [Tirmidhi]

'Sadaqah' literally means 'righteousness' and refers to the voluntary giving of alms or charity. In Islam, sadaqah has been defined as an act of "giving something...without seeking a substitute in return and with the intention of pleasing Allah.

According to Quran 9 verse 60, there are eight categories of people who are entitled to receive Sadaqah.

They are:

  1. The poor (al-fuqarâ’), that is low-income.

  2. The needy people (al-masākīn).

  3. The officials appointed to receive Sadaqah (Zakat Administrators).

  4. Those whose hearts have been (recently) reconciled to Islam (al-mu'allafa qulubuhum).

  5. To free the slaves and captives.

  6. Those who are overburdened with debt.

  7. In the cause of Allah to spread the message of Islam.

  8. To those who are wayfarers (travelers who do not have enough money to go back home).

Sadaqah is a way to earn rewards after death. By giving Sadaqah Jariyah continuos rewards you can invest in the hereafter..

'When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah jariyah (continuos charity), Knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuos descendent who prays for him'. [Muslim]

Invest into Sada'kath's Education project to keep the knowledge flowing for future generations and reap the rewards.. or invest into a water project and every drop of water consumed for the needy.. will flow in rewards insha'allah.
