In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Sadaqah Jariyah
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre

Many people are confused between Sadaqah Jariyah (Continuous/Ongoing Charity) and Esaal-E-Sawaab. These are two different topics and should not be mixed with each other. Duaa is also different topic and one must keep making Duaa for all Muslims including their parents. May Allah forgive our parents & all Mumins and give them a nice place in Jannat-al-Firdous, AMEEN.

Esaal-E-Sawaab is a biddat, a new invention which is against the teaching of the Quraan. For Esaal-E-Sawaab misguided people recite verses from the Quraan and ask Allah to send Sawaab (Good Deed) to the deceased (dead person). Those who believe in Esaal-E-Sawaab should also believe in Esaal-E-Gunaah, in which a person does a great crime/sin and send Esaal-E-Gunaah to Pharaoh etc. BUT that cannot happen since Allah already mentioned that you will get reward of what you have done, not others. Remember: The words "paradise" and "hell" are each repeated 77 times. There is NO Esaal-E-Sawaab and NO Esaal-E-Gunaah.

For each of your actions, including the Hajj or Reciting the Quraan etc., you will get reward of what you have done, and surely DEEDS of your loved ones or others will NOT save you. (Selected References: Al_Quraan_003.030, 003.185, 006.164, 014.051, 016.111, 018.047-049, 020.015-016, 031.033, 036.054, 039.069-070, 040.017, 044.041, 045.028, 060.003, 070.010-015, 075.13, 080.034-037, 082.005, 099.007-008).

Although only one verse from the Quraan is enough, BUT when references are a lot then we need to correct our beliefs according to the Quraan immediately and not reverse.

In simple terms, Rewards of any Deeds, e.g. the Hajj or Reciting the Quraan or Salaat etc. are not Transferable. You will get rewards of what you have done not your loved ones or others.

Sadaqah Jariyah is HAQ and is valid. A person himself/herself directly involved in doing good deeds, e.g. if a person helps in building a Masjid, he/she will continuously getting reward for that as long as Masjid is there and people will be worshipping there. Also if a person raises good children he/she will get good ongoing rewards. Same is true for a person takes part in bad deed, his Gunaah will be increasing continuously.

Do they not then reflect on the Quraan? No, on their hearts there are locks. (Al_Quraan_047.024)

None argue concerning the revelations (Ayaat) of Allah, BUT those who Disbelieve ... (Al_Quraan_040.004)

In which Hadeeth, other than this (Hadeeth of Allah), do they believe? (Al_Quran_077.050)

The Best Way to Get Allah’s Mercy is by following the commandments of Allah:

And when the Quran is recited, then listen to it and remain silent, that mercy may be shown to you. And remember your Lord within yourself humbly and fearing and in a voice not loud in the morning and the evening and be not of the heedless ones. (Al_Quraan_007:204-205)

We made the Quran easy to learn. Do any of you wish to learn? (Al_Quraan_054:017, 022, 032, 040)

If Quraan cannot convince you nothing will, open your heart towards Allah, because to him will you return and if you haven't gone through the manual (the Quraan) he has sent you and understood it properly, for sure Allah will not like it. Non-Practicing Muslims are like ASS / Donkey carrying books, (Ref: Al_Quraan_062.005).

ISLAAM IS A COMPLETE DEEN, NO COMPULSION, NO DISCRIMINATION & NO NEED FOR OVER-RESEARCH TO EXPLOIT IT: (Ref: Al_Quraan.002:256 / 003:030 / 005:003 / 022:078 / 027:001-002 / 049:013)

Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) has no right to change/amend or deviate from the Quraan, (Ref: Al_Quraan_010:015, 018:027). So, any Hadeeth which contradicts the Quraan cannot be Hadeeth at all and must be deleted / removed from all the Books of Hadeeths.
