Donate a water pump in someone’s name

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ encouraged us to give Sadaqah on behalf of those who have passed. He ﷺ said:

“When a man dies, his good deeds come to an end, except three: Ongoing charity, beneficial knowledge, and a righteous child who will pray for him.”

This shows how important it is to set up a sadaqah Jariyah project in the name of your loved ones who have departed this world. Would you like to donate a water pump in someone’s name, someone dear to you, someone whose presence you can still feel long after they left you? Donate a water pump now and send your love and duas for them.

Muslims believe that death is a natural part of life and that it is a transition to the afterlife. They also believe that it is important to mourn the loss of a loved one in a way that is consistent with their faith.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Islamic Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Islamic Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Islamic Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Islamic Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Islamic Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Actions To Be Performed After the Death of a Loved One

Losing a loved one is an extremely hard time for anyone. However, as Muslims we should know that everything around us is temporary, nothing will exist forever. It is only Allah (the Creator, the Sustainer, the Living), Who was there when nothing was created and it He who will be there when everything will be perished. Al Hayy, Al Qayyum

When someone dies we should do the following:

  • Say ‘Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un‘ meaning: To Allah, we belong and to Him, we return.
  • Close his eyes
  • Make dua for him
  • Cover him with a cloth which will cover his whole body – keep the face uncovered if he dies in the state of ihram
  • Hasten to prepare him for burial
  • Bath and shroud the body
  • Perform the funeral prayer
  • Bury the body in a Muslim graveyard – the body should be buried in the city in which the person died – it is not recommended to take the body to another city or country as it contradicts the hadith ‘haste in burying the deceased
  • Hasten to pay off his debt – if he has any!
  • Stay patient – death is a reality and everyone is going to taste it

It is important to remember that death is a difficult time for everyone. This is why Islam encourages us to practice patience throughout our lives so that when a difficult time comes we know we have to stay strong and be patient.

Recommended actions to do after the passing of a loved one

Aside from the Janaza (funeral) and burial rituals, Islam teaches us many ways in which we can help and remember our loved ones who departed this world. These actions are rooted in Islamic teachings and aim to benefit the deceased and provide comfort to the grieving family. These recommended actions include:

  1. Du’a (Supplication) for the Deceased: Continue making heartfelt supplications for your loved one, asking Allah to grant them a place in Jannatul Firdous.
  2. Du’a (Supplication) for Yourself: Continue asking Allah to grant you patience and strength to cope with the loss.
  3. Charity (Sadaqah): Give charity on behalf of the deceased. The best form of charity on behalf of a deceased person is to set up a Sadaqah Jariyah project. Building a water pump or digging a water well is an act of Sadaqah Jariyah as well. If you want to donate a water pump in someone’s name, please get in touch with us and we will facilitate that. Insha’Allah
  4. Remembering the Deceased: The best way to remember the deceased is to make du’a for them. The shortest form of du’a is Rahima’hullah (for male) or Rahima’hallah (for female), which means ‘may Allah have mercy upon him/her.’
  5. Visiting Graves: This is a highly recommended action, not only for loved ones but in general. It reminds us about our death and will keep us strong in our faith.

Remember ultimately it is Allah who provides the strength. These actions are means of becoming closer to Him and asking Him to have mercy upon the loved one who passed away and keep us steadfast in His religion.

Water Sadaqah Jariyah: A Gift That Keeps on Giving

Water is essential for life. Most of us take clean water for granted. But do you know, that for millions of people around the world, access to clean water is a daily struggle?

Yes, this is true. In many parts of the world, people are forced to drink dirty water, which often leads to diseases such as cholera, typhoid, and diarrhoea. These diseases are often catastrophic for children and many a times children have died due to the drinking of dirty water.

This is where your Sadaqah Jariyah and our water projects come in…

Helping poor communities build clean water facilities is an act of kindness and Sadaqah Jariyah. Sadaqah jariyah is a type of charity that will continue to benefit you and your loved ones even after death. When you donate to a water project in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Yemen, Gaza or Afghanistan, you are helping to provide people with clean water for years to come.

The Islamic Welfare Trust is a trusted Islamic charity from the UK that is working to provide clean water to people in need around the world. We have built hundreds of water pumps and wells in countries such as Africa, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Azad Kashmir, and Afghanistan. We have also provided thousands of families with facilities to store clean water in Yemen, Gaza, and Syria. By donating a water pump in someone’s name, you will not only help the poor and the needy but will also send your love, kindness, and prayers to the person you care about.
