Establish a fund
in memory of a loved one,
that would generate charity in perpetuity.
A man came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and he said,
“O Messenger of Allah, my mother died suddenly without writing a will. I think if she could speak, she would give in charity. Will she have a reward if I give charity on her behalf?”
The Prophet said, “Yes.”
Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī , Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim
We are at a time when we are losing loved ones suddenly, at a young age. Our parents have reached an old age. They have spent their entire lives spending all their wealth on us. Many of us have already lost a parent, grandparent or relative that brought us up to be who we are.
What better way to show gratitude towards them than to establish a fund that would continue to generate charity for them beyond their passing. The MCF Legacy Fund makes this possible.
Contributions to Legacy Funds will be Invested in full and the profits will be distributed to our Causes. This would ensure that the charity will continue in perpetuity and In Sha Allah (God Willing) they will continue to be blessed by God for it.
The minimum donation to establish a Legacy Fund is MVR 500.00.
Funds of value of MVR 5,000.00 and above can be allocated a custom name.
Funds of value of MVR 15,000.00 and above can have a dedicated profile page for the beneficiary.
Donations can continue to be added to the Fund over time to increase the overall amount and impact.
Abu Qatadah reported:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said,
“The best of what a man leaves behind are three: a righteous child who supplicates for him,
ongoing charity the reward of which reaches him,
and knowledge that is acted upon after him.”
Sunan Ibn Mājah 237
The establishment of a Sadagah Jariyah is not limited for persons who have passed away. We can establish a perpetual charity in our own name while we are alive and have the means and capability to do so. Why leave it for chance, and hope that someone will do it for us once we have passed away?
