Pakistan is on the verge of becoming a water deficient country. According to international reports we are facing severe water shortage issues. One reason for this is the unavailability of clean drinking water in remote areas and the means to store drinking water for future use. We at AlSakeenah started our welfare project named Al-Jariya with the vision of providing clean water provision in remote areas.
Al-Jariya department collects funds, locates areas in desperate need of water and ensures the completion of all water provision projects. 70 projects have been completed so far in the previous years Alhamdulillah in water scarce areas and are working successfully. These areas include Haripur, Alipur Farash, Manserahm Qutbal Sharif, Dhok Kako, Gujar Khan, Fateh jang, Lal Duwatar, Bakery Chowk, Kahuta, Dadocha, Chak Beli, Airport Colony and Mianwali, while several more projects are under process.
These projects have provided clean water for the basic needs of hundreds of families. Several of our projects are functional in various schools providing clean water to hundreds of students. Alhamdulillah we have contributed for a huge solar tube-well in the dry desert of Thar. Another major contribution was for a Jannaza gah (place for funeral prayers) which previously had no provision for water in Phal village of Tehsil Rawalpindi. Our recent contribution was for a Masjid in Rawalpindi.
Clean water provision is Sadaqah e Jariya (ongoing charity) and keeping in mind the scarce conditions of the country, we must contribute to our best. The Prophet (PBUH) said:
“The best charity is to provide water.” [Ibn Majah, Hasan]
In another Hadith, Sa’d ibn Ubadah reported: I said, “O Messenger of Allah, my mother has died. Shall I give charity on her behalf?” The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Yes.” I said, “Which charity is best?” The Prophet said, “A drink of water.” [Source: Sunan al-Nasa’i 3664]
