Deeds That Will Reach You After Your Death

deeds after death

When you die, then no deeds you can do anymore. But there are deeds than still can reach you after your death.

A hadith from Abu Hurairah (may Allah blesses him) said: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

إِنَّ مِمَّا يَلْحَقُ الْمُؤْمِنَ مِنْ عَمَلِهِ وَحَسَنَاتِهِ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهِ : عِلْمًا عَلَّمَهُ وَنَشَرَهُ ، وَوَلَدًا صَالِحًا تَرَكَهُ ، وَمُصْحَفًا وَرَّثَهُ ، أَوْ مَسْجِدًا بَنَاهُ ، أَوْ بَيْتًا لابْنِ السَّبِيلِ بَنَاهُ ، أَوْ نَهْرًا أَجْرَاهُ ، أَوْ صَدَقَةً أَخْرَجَهَا مِنْ مَالِهِ فِي صِحَّتِهِ وَحَيَاتِهِ ، يَلْحَقُهُ مِنْ بَعْدِ مَوْتِهِ

❝Among the good deeds that will reach a believer after his death are: knowledge which he learned and then spread; a righteous son whom he leaves behind; a copy of the Qur’an that he leaves as a legacy; a mosque that he built; a house that he built for wayfarers; a canal that he dug; or charity that he gave during his lifetime when he was in good health. These deeds will reach him after his death.❞

[Ibn Majah, classed as hasan by al-Albani in Saheeh at-Targheeb].
