What is Sadaqah Jaariyah ?

Question:


Is the money given to the parking lot of the Masjid also considered Sadqa-e-Jaaria?

Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Sadaqah Jaariyah refers to giving such a thing, by way of sadaqah, that is lasting and benefits the creation of Allah (SWT) even after his death, e.g. building a well for people to drink and make wudu from, building a masjid, etc. As long as his Sadaqah Jaariyah exists and people continue to benefit from it, he will continue to receive rewards. (Mirqatul Mafateeh: v. 1, p. 269 [Maktaba Imdadia Multan]; Mazahir e Haq: v. 1, p. 229 [Darul Isha’at]) The Prophet (SAW) said, “When the human being dies, his actions (its rewards) stop except three things: ongoing charity, beneficial knowledge, and a pious child who supplicates for him.” (Muslim: Hadith 1631) Regarding the parking lot of the Masjid, it is something that is of perpetual benefit for the Muslims due to it facilitating access to the Masjid. Hence, donating money for the sake of building a masjid’s parking lot will also count as Sadaqa Jaariyah. Only Allah knows best
