Water and its importance in Al Quran

The Holy Qur’an (23:18)



Until we actually stop to think about it, it can be easy to take the natural resource that is water for granted. While we do not tend to see or realise just how much water we waste on a daily basis; it is still something very valuable to life and something that many people around the world are lacking in and praying for.

But we are provided with enough water, just sometime have to make an effort to obtain it.

To dig the well for example.
To clean river water.
To desalinate sea water.
To condensate water from the air.
The question is only in availability of the tools do so.

JazaakAllahu khair,

Very good reminder. We should not misuse/waste the resources bestowed upon us by Almighty Allah.


"Praise be to Allaah. Imam Ahmad (6768) and Ibn Maajah (419) narrated from ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (blessing and peace of Allah be upon him) passed by Sa‘d when he was doing wudoo’, and he said, “What is this extravagance, O Sa‘d?” He said: Can there be any extravagance in wudoo’? He said, “Yes, even if you are on the bank of a flowing river.”

Shaykh Ahmad Shaakir said: Its isnaad is saheeh. Shaykh al-Albaani (may Allah have mercy on him) classed it as da‘eef in Irwa’ al-Ghaleel, then he classed it as hasan in Silsilat al-Ahaadeeth as-Saheehah. The hadeeth was classed as da‘eef by a number of scholars because its isnaad includes Ibn Luhay‘ah, but al-Albaani (may Allah have mercy on him) stated that the hadeeth is also narrated by Qutaybah ibn Sa‘eed from him, and his reports from him are saheeh.

See: Silsilat al-Ahaadeeth as-Saheehah, 3292.
It says in al-Mawsoo‘ah al-Fiqhiyyah (4/180): They are unanimously agreed that extravagance in using water is makrooh. End quote.

Shaykh ‘Abd al-Muhsin al-‘Abbaad (may Allah have mercy on him) said: The scholars are unanimously agreed that extravagance in using water is forbidden, even on the sea shore, because of the report narrated by Ahmad and Ibn Maajah from ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (may Allah be pleased with him), according to which the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) passed by Sa‘d… then he quoted the hadeeth mentioned above.
End quote from Sharh Sunan Abi Dawood.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) said: We should realize that using a lot of water for wudoo’ or ghusl is included in the words of Allah (interpretation of the meaning): “and waste not by extravagance. Verily, He likes not Al-Musrifoon (those who waste by extravagance)” [al-An ‘am 6:141]. Hence the fuqaha’ (may Allah have mercy on them) said: It is makrooh to waste by extravagance even if one is on the bank of a flowing river, so how about if water is drawn by mechanical means?
To sum up: wasting by extravagance when doing wudoo’ and otherwise is a blameworthy action.

End quote from Sharh Riyadh as-Saaliheen

And Allah knows best.

Coming from a place where I'm surrounded by water (oceans, lakes, rivers), the stuff gets wasted daily. The bottling companies are sucking up all the water from the surrounding areas here, as well as in other states. It's causing negative effects on these areas unfortunately, but the people making the money don't care. The people consuming the product also seem to think we have an unlimited source of it. That or they just don't care enough about wasting it. I guess the same can be said about a lot of other natural resources but water is definitely the most important resource in my opinion.
