I need some clarification on Sadaqah.

I make the payment towards Sadaqah mostly through online. I want to know if my wife will also get the reward for the amount paid towards sadaqah. My wife is housewife and i am the earning member of the family. While making the Sadaqah i do not make niyat if it is from my side or my wife side and just simply make the Sadaqah for reward.

In the name of Allah, the most Gracious the most Merciful

The answer to your question is as follows:

The reward of charity is for the one who gives charity. However, at the time of giving a charity you have the intention that you are giving it on behalf of your wife then she will be rewarded for it. Therefore, while giving alms, make the intention that you are giving some Sadaqa on your own behalf and some sadaqa on the behalf of your wife, so that both may be rewarded.

And Allah knows best
