Access to clean water is a fundamental human need. It allows people to lead a healthy, disease-free life. Unfortunately, in many parts of Asia and Africa, individuals must travel great distances to access clean water. In fact, women and children in these regions must travel an average of 3.7 miles to collect water. Furthermore, approximately four million people in Bangladesh alone lack access to clean drinking water and live in slums.

As Muslims, we understand the importance of providing water to those in need. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) emphasized that providing water is one of the best forms of charity.
The Messenger ﷺ of Allah (SWT) said, 'Allah had once forgiven a prostitute. She passed by a dog panting near a well. Seeing that thirst had nearly killed him, she took off her shoe, tied it to her scarf, and drew up some water. Allah forgave her for that.'
He ﷺ also said, ‘Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, will say on the Day of Resurrection, “…O son of Adam, I asked you for something to drink but you did not give it to me.” He will say, “O Lord, how can I give you something to drink when you are the Lord of the worlds?” He will then say, “My Servant so-and-so asked you to give him something to drink and you did not give it to him. Had you given it to him, you would have surely found that with me.”'
Approximately four million people in Bangladesh alone lack access to clean drinking water.
