How can I still earn reward when I'm dead?

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: "The good deeds that will reach a believer after his (or her) death are: knowledge which he learned and then spread; a righteous child whom he leaves behind; a copy of the Quran that he leaves as a legacy; a mosque that he built; a house that he built for wayfarers; a canal that he dug; or sadaqah (charity) that he gave during his lifetime when he was in good health. These deeds will reach him after his death."

[Ibn Maajah]
