SADAQAH FOR DECEASED
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “The best charity is giving water to drink.” (Ahmad)
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); a knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (for the deceased)."(Muslim)
Providing a water pump is a form of Sadaqah Jariyah for yourself or a loved one you have lost. Imagine this being provided as a gift, on a golden tray, to a loved one while they're in their grave.
For £150 you can provide a water pump to the poorest areas in Pakistan and Bangladesh. The prices for pumps on other countries vary.
Islamic Help's water projects usually last at least 10-15 years on average and can provide water daily for an entire village. This includes providing safe drinking water, cooking, washing clothing, feeding lifestock, growing crops and hygiene to prevent the spread of diseases and help reduce deaths.
One of the biggest challenges that face areas suffering from poverty, famine or drought is the lack of access to clean water for drinking and sanitation purposes. Water is fundamental to life yet even today millions of people, particularly those living in third world countries, have little to no access to it.
Islamic Help has always been mindful of water sanitation, providing residents of affected areas with clean drinking water. One of the ways to provide residents with access to this water is by digging wells and installing water plants. We undertake such projects whenever there is a serious need. Recently, our projects have been concentrated in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Tanzania. Jazak'Allah for your time and kind donations.
