Your Sadaqah Jariyah FAQ

What is Sadaqah Jariyah?

Sadaqah Jariyah (or Sadaqah) is not only an act of faith but an act of philanthropy; it is about supporting those less fortunate through continuous charitable contributions. Though one of the most common forms of Sadaqah is the giving of regular charity donations, Sadaqah Jariyah gifts aren't always monetary. Anything that can have an impact and be beneficial to others is welcome; this can include the giving of religious texts or materials, along with knowledge, skills or time spent fundraising for an altruistic cause. The details of your Sadaqah contributions are almost completely unrestricted, as long as what you are doing is benefitting others.

Why Do We Make Sadaqah Contributions?

The purpose of Sadaqah is to make a difference. We give Sadaqah with the goal of benefitting those less fortunate than us. In every aspect of Islam, we are taught to support one another and help our less fortunate brothers and sisters through whatever struggles they are experiencing. Sadaqah Jariyah is an extension of this, encouraging us to spread our generosity and become closer to Allah (SWT) in the process.  

Who is Eligible to Pay Sadaqah?

Unlike most of the other regular charitable contributions that Muslims must undertake, Sadaqah is not compulsory. Sadaqah is about a conscious decision to support those less fortunate than yourself and as a result, all Muslims are free to give Sadaqah Jariyah gifts whenever they please, as much as they please. Through making Sadaqah donations, donors know that they are making a difference in the world, benefitting their mindset whilst simultaneously improving their standing in the Hereafter.

How Much Should We Pay for Sadaqah Jariyah?

As previously mentioned, Sadaqah is not a compulsory act of charity; instead, it is a completely voluntary one and as a result, the amount that must be donated is not specified. This is amplified by the fact that whilst donating to eligible causes is the most common form of Sadaqah, you can also impart knowledge or give spiritual items as part of your Sadaqah Jariyah gift, too. There is no predefined rule for how much you give or what you do, so long as you are benefitting others.

When and Where Do We Give  Sadaqah?

Sadaqah can be given at any time during the year. However, the most important point to consider is that Sadaqah Jariyah means ‘ongoing charity’ and in turn, ensuring that your donations are regular will amplify the benefits that you gain from them. Note that donations don’t need to be large; small Sadaqah gifts are just as important and valuable, as long as whatever you are doing makes an impact with those around you.

Giving your Sadaqah gifts with Al Mustafa Welfare Trust is a brilliant way of ensuring that whatever you must give is making a difference. Whether you are looking to donate just a few pounds a month, or want to fund a complete cataract surgery, we can utilise your Sadaqah contribution to make an impact on the most vulnerable individuals in the world. Whilst the benefits of Sadaqah stay with you into the Hereafter, they also impact you within your daily life, boosting your mood with the knowledge that you are helping those in need.

Is Sadaqah Jariyah the Same as Zakat?

Sadaqah and Zakat differ greatly. Zakat is a compulsory donation which requires 2.5% of your annual wealth to be donated to charitable causes. Furthermore, Zakat has strict eligibility guidelines and a wealth threshold called the nisab, which indicates whether you are wealthy enough to warrant making a contribution.

On the other hand, Sadaqah is a completely voluntary donation with no restrictions on eligibility at all. Whoever you are and whatever your wealth, if you choose to support others through a Sadaqah contribution, you can.
