Great Rank of spreading the knowledge of true Islam 

  

Indeed the continuous charity can possibly discontinue ,the righteous son may pass away but ..

“If the son of Adam dies, his actions cease except 3: A continuous charity, or knowledge which people benefit from, or a righteous son who supplicates for him” (Saheeh Muslim) Sheikh Saleh bin Al Fowzan commented: I heard Sheikh Muhammad bin Ibraheem رحمه الله mention during a lecture that he delivered in the College of Shari’ah (in Riyadh): Indeed the continuous charity can possibly discontinue (due to funds depleting, etc.), and the righteous son may pass away. As for beneficial knowledge, its benefit will continue and not cease, and the person will continue to gain reward (after his death). This is certainly one of the reasons why knowledge is more superior to other righteous deeds.

Reward For Deeds After Death & Sadaqa Jariya (Perpetual Charity)

Sadaqa Jaariya - Reward For Deeds After Death

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).

The Angels lower their wings being pleased with him

inheritance-of-the-prophets

Abu Darda (radiallaahu ‘anhu) narrated that the Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

Whoever seeks a path to knowledge, Allaah will make easy for him a path to Paradise. Indeed, the angels lower their wings being pleased with the one who seeks knowledge. Whoever is in the heavens and on earth, even the fish in the sea, ask for forgiveness for the scholar. The superiority of the scholar over the worshipper is like that of the moon over all other heavenly bodies. The scholars are the inheritors of the Prophets, for the Prophets did not leave behind Dinars and Dirhams, but they left behind knowledge; and whoever receives it, receives an abundance of good fortune.

(Ahmad, Abu Dawud; authentic)
