Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: In the Hadith it is mentioned about sadaqah jariyah. If I give money for a water pump to be made is that sadaqah jariyah? Also if I tell someone about deen and they practise it, is that sadaqah jariyah? Can you please give me some examples a layman could do for sadaqah jariyah?


A: Yes, this is sadaqah-e-jaariyah. 

Another example is donating money for the construction of a Musjid, Madrasah, etc.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

وعن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إذا مات الإنسان انقطع عمله إلا من ثلاثة أشياء صدقة جارية أوعلم ينتفع به أوولد صالح يدعو له  رواه مسلم ( مشكاة # 203)
