Water Appeal: Best Charity is Giving Water

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “The best charity is giving water (to drink)” [Ahmad]

Help us provide clean drinking for the poor & the needy around the world. Right now, Dabbagh Welfare Trust is on the ground building water well, digging water pumps, and providing water storage tanks for the poor and needy people in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Africa, Yemen, Syria & Gaza.

With your generous donation towards our Water Appeal, children from remote regions who would usually spend the day searching for water will be able to attend school seeking knowledge. And their mothers will not have to walk miles and miles in search of clean drinking water.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Dabbagh Welfare Trust (Mercy for All) to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Dabbagh Welfare Trust (Mercy for All) will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Dabbagh Welfare Trust (Mercy for All) receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Water For Life

Nearly 1 billion people lack access to clean drinking water. Give the gift of a water pump and help us eradicate water poverty. Through our water appeal, we also build sanitation and hygiene facilities for the poor and needy families. Save lives by giving people access to clean and safe water.

Every human knows that water is a source of life. However, as Muslims water is much more than that. Whilst water is important for the physical survival of a human, water is as important for the spiritual survival of a Muslim.

  • 5 times a day Muslims perform Wudu with water
  • On Fridays, Muslims perform Ghusl with water
  • Water is a must for personal hygiene in a Muslim’s life
  • The deceased is washed with water
  • Water removes impurities from clothes, pots & pans

Water: A blessing from Allah

Water is an integral part of Islam and has been embedded in Islamic teachings. It is one of the immense mercies of Allah ta’ala bestowed upon us. We use this blessing of water as a source of growth, sustenance, and bodily purification, as we are required to perform wudhu and ghusl (ritual ablutions) using water before prayer throughout the day. Allah ta’ala mentions this blessing in the Holy Qur’an:

“And it is He who sends the winds as good tidings before His mercy, and We send down from the sky pure water” [Quran 25:48]

4 Out of 6 people do not have access to clean water

Unfortunately, one of the biggest problems we are facing today is that approximately 36-40% of the world population is without safe water or sanitation. Many hundreds of millions are in a cycle of poverty and disease. Across the poverty-stricken nations, millions of women are spending a lot of time collecting dirty water and children are dying from diarrhoeal diseases. The communities have no sewage system in place and are living amongst open running sewers.

Water is a source of life

We take water for granted – we do not truly appreciate it. Imagine life without clean water- we can’t. However, there are many people around the world where it is normal to use dirty water.  Dabbagh Welfare Trust aims to provide clean water and proper sanitation facilities to improvised communities around the world. Save lives and give the gift of water to the poor & needy.

Our beloved Prophet, Sayyiduna Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) describes water as one of the three wonders of the natural world that every Muslim is entitled to: “Muslims have a common share in three (things). Grass, water and fire” [Abu Dawood]

Water Appeal for Pakistan

Pakistan is on the verge of becoming a water scarcity country. Pakistan has the world’s fourth-highest rate of water use. According to all the latest surveys, Pakistan is third on the list of becoming a water-stressed country in the next 5-10 years.

This means that millions of families will not be able to access clean drinking water and thousands will die after contracting water-borne diseases.

Yemen humanitarian crisis is known to every human on this planet. Over 24 million people are on the verge of facing starvation. Even before the current Yemen war, Yemen was one of the world’s most water-scarce countries. Over 14 million Yemenis struggle to find clean drinking water.

Water Appeal for Gaza

Gaza: an open-air prison – over 2 million people are imprisoned on this small piece of land. They don’t have enough food to eat. Continuous conflict and heavy bombardment have destroyed almost all water plants. Right now over 80% of the Gaza population is dependant on humanitarian aid.

Water Appeal for Syria

Syrian families living in camps do not have access to clean water. Many Muslim charities work together in these camps and distribute drinking water among the Syria Refugee families.

Through our Syria Crisis Appeal, we are distributing clean drinking water for hundreds of Syrian families. Unfortunately, there is no permanent water source near most of these camps and water has to come from outside. This is why we need your continuous support towards our Syria Humanitarian Crisis Appeal.

Giving Water is the Best Sadaqah Jariyah

Sa’d ibn ‘Ubadah reported: I said:

“O Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), my mother has died. Shall I give charity on her behalf?”

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Yes”

I said, “Which charity is best?”

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “A drink of water”
