Safe Drinking Water

Water: Give the Gift of Life

We Not Looking for a Lot From Someone, But a Little From Everyone !
Allah by taking care of His servants – and Allah will question them about this on the Day of Judgement. From bringing a guest something to drink to building a well in a deprived area, anyone who gives water for the sake of Allah will surely find their reward with Him.

It saves lives
With Hundreds of Thousands of people dying from diarrhoea alone each year, unsafe water is the single biggest obstacle to the health of communities in the developing world. Small children are especially vulnerable to cholera and diarrheal illnesses, and unsafe water compromises their immune systems as well, making it difficult for them to fight any illness.

The gift of water saves lives, which is a hugely rewardable action. Allah says in the Qur’an, ‘And whoever saves one [a life] – it is as if he had saved all of mankind’. (Qur’an, 5:32) Imagine this – every single time the clean water you donated saves someone’s life, it is as if you have saved all of mankind!

It is ‘the best charity’
‘The Messenger of Allah (saw) was asked, “Which charity is best?” He replied, “[Providing] Gift of water”’. [Abu Dawud]

We use water for everything, from washing dishes to cooking food to growing crops. Allah says in the Qur’an, ‘By means of water, we give life to everything’. (Qur’an, 21:30) Communities who don’t have access to clean water face unimaginable hardships, with women and children walking for hours to collect even a little Gift of water, and families unable to support themselves due to lack of education and livelihood.

Having access to safe water is a basic human right and fulfilling this right is an excellent Sadaqah.

We Not Looking for a Lot From Someone, But a Little From Everyone !
Not all of us are able to build wells for entire communities – but don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the rewards! Reward is based on the sincerity of our intention, and even giving a single glass of water carries immense rewards if it’s all you can give.

You can build a well in someone else’s name
On the authority of Sa‘d bin ’Ubadah  that he said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! Umm (mother of) Sa‘d has died, so which charity is best?’  He (saw) replied, ‘[Providing] water’. He (ra) said, ‘So [Sa’d] dug a well and said, “This (well) is for Umm Sa‘d”’. [Abu Dawud]

Ramadan is a time when we remember our loved ones who have passed away, and many of us want to give Sadaqah Jariyah in their name during this blessed month. In the above hadith, the Prophet (saw) recommended water as the best charity to give in someone’s name. Every time someone breaks their fast using this water; every time someone wears the clothes washed with that water; every time someone eats a vegetable grown from that water – both of you will be rewarded for that.

It is the ultimate Sadaqah Jariyah The Gift of Water
