The gift that keeps giving
Sadaqah Jariyah in memory of Iftikhar Hussain, beloved grandfather, father, husband and community member.
Sadaqah Jariyah is a gift that provides a chain of long term benefits.
The best charity is giving water to drink. – Prophet Muhammad ﷺ
Building a well is considered Sadaqah Jariyah due to the sustainability it creates for generations to come. Providing clean water helps prevent water-borne diseases from spreading to entire communities.
Providing accessibility to clean water helps to protect women and children who have to travel 2-5 kilometers a day just to fetch water and allows farmers to improve their agriculture and livestock.
Iftikhar Hussain was a husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and well known community member who dedicated many years of his life to advance the wellbeing of others through his support of local initiatives. He provided the call to prayer (adhan) at Al-Huda musullah in Montreal and was a leader in distributing halal meat within the greater Montreal region for over two decades. Now that he is no longer with us, please consider donating in his memory through this sadaqah jariyah initiative.
