Many people, especially the vulnerable (aged and children) are usually exposed to unsafe and dirty water. The gift of water saves lives, which is a hugely rewardable action. Allaah says in the Qur’an [Interpretation of the meaning] “And whoever saves one (life) it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. “
Imagine Life without access to clean water!
Sadly, people in some communities lack these important necessities but there is definitely something you can do about it insha Allah. Its simple! just donate!
Water is a blessing from Allah (swt) that we often take for granted, but during Ramadan, through the mercy of Allah, we become more conscious of the difficulties faced by those without access to safe water. Giving water is a highly recommended action in Islam, and its rewards are multiplied even further during this blessed month.
Water is life!
Many people, especially the vulnerable (aged and childrhttps://sadaka.ng/wp-admin/tools.phpen) are usually exposed to unsafe and dirty water, which results to illnesses like diarrheal and this in turn lead to their death (when untreated). The gift of water saves lives, which is a hugely rewardable action. Allaah says in the Qur’an [Interpretation of the meaning] “And whoever saves one (life) it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. “
‘The Messenger of Allah (saw) was asked, “Which charity is best?” He replied, “[Providing] water”’. [Abu Dawud]
Sa’d Ibn ‘Ubadah (RadiyaLlaahu’anhu) reported: I said, ” O Messenger of Allaah, my mother has died, shall I give charity on her behalf?” The Messenger of Allaah (Sollallaahu alaihi wasallam), said, “Yes.” “Which charity is the best?” The Prophet said ” A drink of water.”
[Sunan An-Nasai, Graded Hasan by Al-Albani]
It is also evident from this narration that one of the ways we can benefit our deceased loved ones is to provide a means of water to the people. This will serve as a means of getting enormous reward from Allaah.
Sadaqah Jariyah is a gift that not only benefits others in this life but also benefits us and our loved ones in the next. “When a person dies, all their deeds end except three: a continuing charity, beneficial knowledge and a child who prays for them.”. The blessed month of Ramadhan is here again, we invite you to join us in our water project in Nigeria.
Unimaginable hardships are things people go through when there is lack or little access to water to fulfill basic needs. Imagine the reward you will get when people make wudoo with the water you have provided.
Giving water in this regard could serve as Sadaqatun Jaariyah (Ongoing Charity) that we can benefit immensely from its reward even after our demise. We have an example in the (third) Caliph ‘Uthman Ibn ‘Affan (RadiyaLlaahu’anhu), he purchased the well of a Jew for the people of Madinah, this well is still functioning till today hundred of years after it was bought. Therefore, let’s join hands together to support this noble cause with our wealth, no matter his little it is, with sincere intention, we stand a chance of gaining rewards in multitudes in this life and Hereafter.
We have built wells but we want to build boreholes.
Boreholes are cleaner , more abundant and more sustainable than wells that why we are aiming to build it. It’s hard to believe that more often than not, the clean water a developing community desperately needs is right underneath them. And it’s amazing how a relatively small investment to get to it can make such a dramatic difference in so many lives. That’s why we fund these well projects!
