Water is a blessing from Allah that we often take for granted. Giving water is a highly
recommended action in Islam. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) told us about
the virtues of giving water to people. In one hadith giving water has been mentioned as the
best Sadaqah. He encouraged digging of wells and giving water for the benefit of people. He
declared it unlawful to poison the wells of enemies.
Worldwide three children die every minute from drinking dirty water. Unsafe water is the
single biggest obstacle to the health of communities in the developing world. Especially
small children are vulnerable to cholera and diarrheal illnesses. As a result, unsafe water
compromises their immune systems making it difficult for them to fight illnesses.
We at Sihla Foundation have been providing safe clean drinking water to those who are
particularly vulnerable and have a number of programmes throughout Pakistan.
Hand Pump – Cost just £100 and will provide a family with an endless supply of water for
drink, cooking and cleaning. This is zakat eligible because it is given to a need family.
Community Well – A communal well costs between £300 and £2500 depending on size but
will provide water for a whole community or village.
Bottled water – We have been regularly distributing bottled waters where it has not been
possible to dig a well. Any amount will make a difference.
