Sadaqa Jariya - Saif Islam Shah - Solar Water Well
Gift Of Water - Sadaqah Jarriyah
As salaam alaikum wa rahmatullah
Inna lilahi wa inna ilaihi rajioon. To Allah we belong and to him we return. Allah has recalled one of his slaves back to him, my dear father Saif Islam Shah made his gentle return back to Allah. May Allah accept him into His Grace and Mercy, overlook his shortcomings and magnify his good deeds, ameen. This is the Haqq and although the hearts are heavy and the eyes shed tears we do not say that which displeases Allah.
When a person passes away one of the things he leaves behind is on going charity. To this end we would like to raise some money for a solar powered water well to be built in the blessed lands of Yemen. Please donate what ever you can and remember us in your dua's.
'The best Sadaqah is giving water (to drink.) '[Ahmad]
Around 60% of our bodies are made up of water, an indispensable basis of life.
Despite the desperate reliance of the human body on the water, 844 million people worldwide do not have access to a clean, drinkable supply of this vital resource. This means many people either die of dehydration or get sick from being forced to consume water which is unclean and disease-ridden.
In a world where we consider a smartphone a necessity, water should not be a luxury. Through our “Solar Powered Water Well” project we are striving to ensure that the blessing of clean, drinkable water, is readily available for the poor and needy.
Through this project, One Nation is currently supplying water in various countries like Yemen, Burma, India, Bangladesh, Yemen, Gaza and many others. This link specifically is for Yemen inshAllah.The Prophet (SAW) was asked, "Which charity is best?" He replied, "Providing water." [Abu Dawud]
“When a person dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three: ongoing charity (Sadaqah Jariyah), knowledge that is benefited from, and a righteous child who prays for him.” (Sahih Muslim)
