Reflection – Giving a Final Gift of Sadaqah

Lately, I’ve been pondering over the rights that one Muslim holds over another. Some aspects are fundamental; we often learn about them in our spiritual teachings. For instance, when invited, we generally expect to accept the invitation unless there’s a compelling reason to decline.

This contemplation and recent losses in our community led me to reflect on the numerous Janaazah notices indicating that individuals were unmarried or childless. This raised concerns about the potential absence of prayers for their salvation in the years to come. It was during this contemplation that a sister who had lost her husband reminded me of our right to contribute to the well-being of our departed loved ones.

She highlighted the opportunity to donate to a madrassa for fees, books, or even to a mosque on behalf of the deceased. This perspective on Sadaqah prompted me to rethink its purpose. By directing our charitable acts in this way, we ensure perpetual rewards for the departed soul and compel ourselves to consider the legacy we leave behind for our own Hereafter.
