The Three Best Things One can Leave Behind after his Demise

عن أبي قتادة رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم خير ما يخلف الرجل من بعده ثلاث ولد صالح يدعو له وصدقة تجري يبلغه أجرها وعلم يعمل به من بعده رواه ابن ماجه بإسناد صحيح (الترغيب والترهيب 1/158)

Hazrat Abu Qataadah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “The best things a person can leave behind after his demise are three; a pious child who makes dua for him, sadaqah-e-jaariya (the good that one leaves behind) the benefit and reward of which continues to reach one after his demise, and the knowledge of Deen (which he imparted to people) that people continue to practice after his demise.

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr bin Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reported, “Whoever sends salutations upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once, Allah Ta‘ala and His angels will send seventy mercies and blessings upon him in return of his one Durood. Hence, whoever wishes to increase his Durood should increase it, and whoever wishes to decrease his Durood should decrease it (i.e. if he wants to earn great rewards, then he should increase his Durood).”
