Subhnallah I drink about 2 gallons of water a day Wallahi. I think the main reason why I do that is becuase I don't drink juices or sodas. Only water alhamdulilah. There is a trick to see if one is dehydrated or not. If you pinch your skin and its like a prune then your dehydrated. Otherwise if your skin has alot of fliuid when you pinch it then you are not dehydrated.

Alhamdulilah that's all that counts.

I can't bear the taste of tap water unless it's ice cold. So winters are cool for that in the UK. Some days I don't drink any at all which is really bad. When I do drink it, I squeeze lemon juice in it.. lovely.

Btw, did you know drinking too much water is dangerous?

When you read about people who die or get kidney damage “from drinking too much water” you are only hearing half of the story. The other half of the story is often overlooked. These people die or are seriously injured internally from over-hydration with insufficient replacement of sodium, which is called dilutional hyponatremia.

It's best to stick to 6-8 glasses a day.

Seriously, fizzy pop is so bad that if we knew all the truth about it, we'd def stop drinking it. Can you believe this man actually died from drinking too much fizzy pop due to carbon dioxide poisoning- the gas that makes pop fizzy.

Look at the 2005 Health scares on this site. Really shocking!

1/2 glass for the 2 main meals a day r usually enough for me,...thts really bad..not enough at all...i'm obviously not the best of examples juice is next best, fizzy drinks last n milk is a no noo.

nehows for those of us who rnt 2 fond of water its ok... :? (bright idea sparks up) we have an alternative we can all become fruit n vege pplz from now on...

did u know? Fruits and vegetables — besides being good sources of vitamins, minerals and fiber — contain lots of water. For example, oranges are 87 percent water, and cucumbers are 95 percent water.

Asalamoalaikum wr wb

i drink water throughout the day...varying from 6-8 glasses...also, i normally sip diluted ribena through the day and night as an extra....

and heres why....some facts i recall from uni.....thought id share them...



1) Researchers believe that ordinary tap water helps reduce the risk of kidney stones.

2) Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of urinary tract and colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

3) It prevents the common cold. Moisture in your throat holds the antibodies that fight off viruses. If you’re even slightly dehydrated, this natural protection disappears.

4) It controls migraines. Without plenty of water, you’re more likely to have an attack.

5) It helps lower "bad" cholesterol. When you’re dehydrated, your blood becomes thick and acidic and can cause damage to arterial walls. Levels of LDL cholesterol rise in response to coat the arterial walls.

6) It may cure asthma. When you’re not getting enough water, your body produces more histamine, which regulates how often your bronchial muscles contract. Drinking water decreases production of histamine, keeping breathing steady.

7) It soothes arthritis pain. Water in the cartilage of your joints acts as a lubricant.

8) A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.

9) Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

10) The kidneys can't function properly without enough water. When they don't work to capacity, some of their load is dumped onto the liver. One of the liver's primary functions is to metabolize stored fat into usable energy for the body. But, if the liver has to do some of the kidney's work, it can't operate at full throttle. As a result, it metabolizes less fat, more fat remains stored in the body and weight loss stops.

11) Drinking enough water is the best treatment for fluid retention. When the body gets less water, it perceives this as a threat to survival and begins to hold onto every drop. Water is stored in extra cellular spaces outside the cells. This shows up as swollen feet, legs and hands.

The best way to overcome the problem of water retention is to give the body what it needs: plenty of water. Only then will stored water be released.

12) Water helps to maintain proper muscle tone by giving muscles their natural ability to contract and by preventing dehydration. It also helps to prevent the sagging skin that usually follows weight loss. Shrinking cells are buoyed by water, which plumps the skin and leaves it clear, healthy and resilient.

13) Water helps rid the body of waste. During weight loss, the body has a lot more waste to get rid of. All that metabolized fat must be shed. Again, adequate water helps flush out waste.

14) Water can relieve constipation. When the body gets too little water, it siphons what it needs from internal forces. The colon is one primary source. Result? Constipation. But when a person drinks enough water, normal bowel function usually returns.


Drinkkk plennntyyyy of waterrrrr.......a natural cure for many health disorders......inshaAllah

maybe u shud try steadily increasing d amount of water u drink and let ur body adapt inshaAllah...

Dont over do it by drinking loads of water all in one go, especially if ur body aint used to 6-8 glasses as a daily intake.

gradually increase ur intake of water on a daily basis...and before you know it you will be drinking sufficient levels of water inshaAllah....

keep a whole lotta 500ml water bottles in d fridge and just help urself 2 them during the day...
why not try eating salted popcorn...that will surely have u reaching for sumthing 2 drink...
else sumthing equally dry like peanut butter on salty crackers....haven't tried it, but hey it shud work :)

Ok, to those who said they drink 2 gallons a day..yeah right! If you did, you would get water poisoning. I drink a good 8-10 cups a day-I have to where I live. Also, if you are thirsty, that means you are already slightly dehydrated. To those of you who prefer soda- it takes 16 ozs of water for every 8 ozs of soda you drink to rehydrate.

some interesting things about water. remember like many things the secret is to drink the amount you actually need. Too much or too little are both harmful.


Yes, it is possible for a person to drink too much water. It is called water intoxication. What happens is the sodium level in the blood reaches very low levels (because of dilution by excess water which can only be excreted in the urine, sweat or breath). This disturbs water balance in the brain, which can cause epileptic seizures and even death.

Research has shown that a person can safely drink up to 10 liters of water a day. That would equal 10 one-liter bottles of water. An exception would be persons with kidney disease who are limited in the amount of water they can drink per day. Persons with bladder infections benefit from increasing their water intake.
Also the type of water is important. the popular "PURE" bottled waters may not be as healthy as people think they are.

With regards to water ratings, one comparison would be based on hard versus softened water. Hard water contains minerals, soft water doesn't and may have higher sodium content. Research has found that minerals in hard water, though not in the most absorbable form, are better for your cardiovascular system (heart).

The second comparison would be based on tap versus bottled water including water coolers. Since many people are drinking bottled water, they may not be getting fluoride provided by fluoridated city water. Fluoride helps make teeth calcium harder and less likely to dental decay. Fluoride also helps make bones harder and less likely to break or lose calcium.

The amount of water we need will depend on several factors such as the temperature and humidity. Also what types of activities we are engaged in. Aperson sitting in a quiet cool house will not need as a person doing strenuous physical activities on a hot day.



Current recommendations for water are 8, eight ounce glasses per day which would equal 64 ounces. This amount should be sufficient for most healthy persons who are not in a hot, humid environment or sweating from physical work or exercise and should drink more water, more often.

Easier method is to pay attention to the color of your urine each time you urinate. (Urine that has accumulated in your bladder during sleep will be more concentrated and yellow. Otherwise, if your kidneys didn't concentrate urine during sleep, you would have to wake up to urinate.) After the urinating the first time after waking up, your urine should be colorless and odorless for the remainder of the day. This assumes that you have normal functioning kidneys and no bladder disease or infection.
Let your body help guide you.

A bottle of spring or mineral water has become the lifestyle accessory of the health-conscious. No longer a luxury item, the beverage has become a common sight worldwide.

Jazakallah Khair Brother for posting this. I remember when this report first came out and I was relieved to see it considering the cost of bottled water and the trash factor as well for those who like myself who lives in a community that doesn't have a recycling program for plastics. Both my husband and myself have nice tall glass of it from the tap each morning with our suhur meal when we fast. It really helps make it through a day of fasting to have your body hydrated.
