Story

As-salāmu ʿalaykum  Thank you for visiting our JustGiving page.  This Ramadan we pledge to fundraise £300 for a Water Well in aid of Penny Appeal’s Thirst Relief Campaign. Three children die every minute from drinking dirty water.

Drinking dirty, diseased water is one of the most common causes of death in the developing world and, one of the most preventable.  With reliable access to clean water, thousands of lives could be saved each day.  

Through the Thirst Relief campaign, we aim to raise £300 for a water well where it is most needed in 1 of the 4 countries mentioned below: 

Bangladesh

India 

Pakistan

Nepal 

It was narrated by Ibn Majah that the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said: “The best form of charity is giving water (to drink).”

By having a waterwell built we will not only be providing reliable access to safe, clean water but also access to drinking, cooking, washing, watering crops and animals and making wudu.  This allows those less fortunate a chance to break free from poverty and transform their lives for years to come. 

This can also be seen as a form of Sadaqah Jariyah:

"When a man passes away, his good deeds will also come to an end except for three: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); a knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (for the deceased)" Narrated by Abu Hurairah, Sahih Muslim

Ongoing charity – sadaqah jariyah – is one of the most valuable acts we can do in this life, which continues benefiting us in the next, even after we have left the earth.Allah tells us in the Qur’an that the reward of spending in charity is like “a grain of corn which grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains” (2:261)  

May Allah bless you and us all with his peace and blessings, May Allah mercy on us and respond our every duas, May He(Allah) forgive our sins, multiply our hasanat (Credit for good deeds), grant us and our family good health, happiness at every step of life, May Allah bless us with good people around us and allocate a place for us in jannah. Ameen.  

JazakAllahu Khairan, x
