Drop of Life – Clean Water Project
We often take for granted the comfortable and convenient lifestyle that we live. We often forget how fortunate we are to simply turn a tap and have an unlimited supply of water. And we often forget that not everyone has been blessed with this simple privilege.
Imagine travelling extremely long distances on rough terrains in the scorching heat of the sun on a summer day and/or in the severest of cold weathers just to have a drink of water and to take some home to your family. This is not a condition anyone should be in today especially since it takes so little effort from us to assist them. We can solve this problem together by simply building a water well that not only individuals will benefit from but entire communities as well.
Building a well will not only provide convenient access to water for communities, but it also prevents severe and fatal diseases that are caused by lack of hygiene.
Sa’d ibn Ubadah reported: He said, “O Messenger of Allah, the mother of Sa’d has died, so what is the best charity I may give on her behalf?” The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “Water.” Sa’d dug a well and he said, “This is for the mother of Sa’d.” (Abu Dawud)
