Serving Water & Seeking Forgiveness

Providing water to a thirsty person or those in need of it is a special form of charity having much reward. Water is the source of life and to give water is likened to giving life. Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said “The best form of sadaqah is giving someone water.” (Ibn Majah)

Great virtues have been cited for providing water and creating water generating facilities that become a means of perpetual reward and benefit the donor in this life and after death.

Once Sa'd bin 'Ubada (R) said: “O Rasulullah, Umm Sa'd, my mother has passed away, what is the best charity to do for her ?” Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied, “Water.” So Sa'd dug a well and said: “This is for Umm Sa'd”. (Abu Dawood)

Similarly, a very thirsty man went down a well and drank water from it. On his return he saw a dog panting due to excessive thirst. The man went down the well, filled his shoe with water and provided the water to the dog. Allah Ta'ala accepted this great deed and forgave his sins.

Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “Sadaqah extinguishes sin just as water extinguishes fire.” (Tirmizi)

Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “The believer's shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his Sadaqah.” (Ahmad)

In the current climate of severe water shortage, Muslims should seize the opportunity and show mercy towards humans, animals and all living beings by providing water where they can.

Consider the following suggestions:

1. Boreholes         2.        Water tankers/trailers

3. Jo-jo tanks       4.         Bottled water
