Reward For Deeds After Death & Sadaqa Jariya (Perpetual Charity)
From Aboo Hurairah – radiyallaahi ‘anhu – who said: Allaah’s Messenger – salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – said:
<<Among the deeds and virtues whose reward will reach the Believer after his death are: knowledge that he taught and disseminated; a righteous son whom he left behind; a written copy of the Qur`aan which he left as a legacy; or a mosque that he built; or a house that he built for the passing traveller; or a canal which he dug and caused to flow; or charity which he gave from his property whilst he was alive and well, for which he will continue to receive reward after his death.>>
Reported by Ibn Maajah (no.242), Ibn Khuzaymah (4/121/2490), and al-Bayhaqee in Shu`abul-Eemaan (3/274/3448). Declared ‘hasan’ by Shaikh al-Albaanee in Saheehut- Targheeb wat-Tarheeb (no.77).

Donate for the Books, CDs, Tapes, Leaflets to ILM4U (I Leave Mine 4 You)
ILM4U is a charity group community of Muslims working together based in Birmingham, in the heart of England.
Our goals and objectives are to spread authentic Islamic knowledge globally, especially the hard-to-reach places, and propagate the Islamic creed based upon the correct and authentic teachings of the noble Qur’aan and the authentic Sunnah according to the understanding of the Salaf (The Pious Predecessors).
THE ROLE OF ILM4U
The role and aim of ILM4U is to collect and gather books, cd’s, leaflets and every support that can be used to spread Salafiyah. Once all of these resources have been collected, we send them to various countries around the world.
Books, cds, tapes or leaflets that are given are sent to trustworthy brothers across the world. They are brothers that we personally know and have a good relation with. Then, either these brothers distribute those books, cds, leaflets to the local people or they place them in a local library so that the Muslims can benefit from them and establish circles of knowledge.
