What is Sadaqah Jariyah?

Sadaqah jariyah, which literally translates into continuous charity, is a form of charity which leads the giver to receiving continuous reward in this world, as well as in the life hereafter.

According to a Hadith:

"When a man passes away, his good deeds will also come to an end except for three: Sadaqah jariyah, a knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (after his death)." [Sahih Muslim]

The Holy Quran explains the benefits of sadaqah in the following words: “Indeed, the men who practice charity and the women who practice charity and [they who] have loaned Allah a goodly loan - it will be multiplied for them, and they will have a noble reward.” [57:18]

Sadaqah jariyah is an act of kindness, compassion and generosity. It can take various forms such as providing education or water resources, building a mosque, making donations to a hospital, or financing orphans etc. Sadaqah jariyah, like any other form of charity, does not only ensure reward from the Almighty, but also is a great act of empathy. The purpose of sadaqah jariyah is serving humanity and providing relief to the deserving human beings by addressing their needs. We at Syria Relief are working to help the people of Syria in a number of ways. Your donations fuel our efforts and keep us motivated to go the extra mile and do our part for improving the living conditions of conflict-hit Syrians.

Plant an Olive Tree

Olive’s are a centuries-old mainstay of Middle-Eastern economy. An example that good things come in small packages, olive trees rarely exceed eight meters in height, but the benefits of this small tree are endless.

The olive tree is mentioned 6 times in the Quran and the Prophet Muhammad is reported to have said:

"Consume the oil (of olives) and use it on your hair and skin, for it comes from a blessed tree". [Tirmidhi].

This Ramadan with Syria Relief you can sow the seeds of sustainable livelihoods in Syria. One of the most fertile areas of the world, agricultural farming is one of the best ways of ensuring a sustainable long-term income for the most desperate families in Syria. Lay down the roots of a Sadaqah Jariya today. A donation of £10 can lift a family in Syria out of poverty today and for generations to come.

The Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) was reported to have said: Never does a Muslim plant a tree except that he has the reward of charity for him, for what is eaten out of that is charity; what is stolen out of that, what the beasts eat out of that, what the birds eat out of that is charity for him.

Olive trees have provided food, oil and medicine for hundreds of years. A dietary staple for Syrians for thousands of years, olives are one of the most healthiest fats on Earth, and with 100,000 children in Syria suffering from malnutrition, the more olive trees we can get planted this Ramadan, the better chance we have at spreading this wholesome, nutritious plant. An estimated 83 percent of Syrians live below the poverty line and are increasingly vulnerable due to the loss or lack of sustained livelihoods.A country in economic turmoil, an olive tree can be a real live saver for families struggling for a sustanuabe, stable living. Over the years, our work has shown that providing the means to be independent greatly boost morale and helps strengthen community cohesion between under-resourced host communities with displaced populations. With your support, our Olive tree project will have long lasting benefits now and in the distant future.


Development of Medical Aid Programme is one of our biggest initiatives for the people of Syria. We aim to not only provide basic healthcare facilities but also offer mental health support and prosthetic limbs to the needy. You can explore the healthcare services we are offering and donate as part of sadaqah jariyah according to your affordability.

Access to Clean Water

Prophet Muhammad PBUH was once asked “What charity is best?”; to which he responded,

“Giving water to drink”. [Sunnan-e-ibn-e-Maja]

Water, which is the basic human need, has been scarcely available to many Syrians. Syria Relief continues to provide clean water to them. By the grace of Allah, we have made it available to more than 100,000 people to date. You can contribute to this sadaqah jariyah and become part of the noble cause.

Supporting the Orphans Prophet Muhammad PBUH said:

“The one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in Paradise like this,” (then he held his two fingers together to illustrate). [Sahih Bukhari]

The devastating conflict in Syria gave rise to the number of orphans who badly needed to be looked after. Hence, we set up teams in Syria to take care of orphans and address their deprivations. It is an on-going process and we shall continue to take care of the Syrian orphans for as long as the donations keep flowing in.

Education Programme

Providing education is one of the best forms of sadaqah jaiyah as it not only increases knowledge and makes good human beings, but also helps secure future of individuals.

Our education-related efforts for the people of Syria are the most successful initiatives where we have sponsored some 55 schools to date. Besides, we give special attention to the traumatized children under our Child Friendly Spaces (CFS) programme to provide the needed psychological support. The generosity of our donors keeps us motivated to continue our support for the Syrians.


Those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah and then do not follow up what they have spent with reminders [of it] or [other] injury, will have their reward with their Lord; and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. [2:262]
