‘THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH (SAW) WAS ASKED, “WHICH CHARITY IS BEST?” HE REPLIED, “[PROVIDING] WATER”’. [ABU DAWUD]

 

Globally, 1 in 9 people still have no access to clean water. But in the communities we serve, it’s 9 out of 9. Water is a daily and crippling challenge. Without water you can’t grow food, you can’t build housing, you can’t stay healthy, you can’t stay in school and you can’t keep working.

 

But the water crisis can be solved.

 

Children often bear the burden of walking miles each day to find water in streams and ponds, full of water-borne disease that is making them and their families sick.

 

You can change that.

 

Providing water is a very good way of offering a Sadaqah Jariyah (continuous charity) as the donor can expect to reap Allah’s blessings for as long as the well supplies water.
