Build a Well in Someone Else's Name!

Don’t forget: You can build a well in someone else’s name


Ramadan is a time when we remember our loved ones who have passed away, and many of us want to give Sadaqah, in their name during this blessed month. In the above hadith, the Prophet (saw) recommended water as the best charity to give in someone’s name. Every time someone breaks their fast using this water; wears the clothes washed with that water eats a vegetable grown from that water – both of you will be rewarded for that. It is the ultimate Sadaqah - The Gift of Water


On the authority of Sa‘d bin ’Ubadah that he said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! Umm (mother of) Sa‘d has died, so which charity is best?’ He (saw) replied, ‘[Providing] water’. He (ra) said, ‘So [Sa’d] dug a well and said, “This (well) is for Umm Sa‘d”’. [Abu Dawud]
