1. Water changes lives
As one of the 4 sacred months chosen by Allah S.W.T., every good deed in the month of Muharram carries more weight and earns you more rewards.
So imagine what happens when you give the gift of water to someone who needs it!
For the almost 2 billion people who struggle every day without access to clean and safe drinking water, your sadaqah literally changes their lives. What better way to celebrate our Muharram than by helping those in need while also earning lifelong rewards for our Akhirah!
2. Commemorating a sacrifice
In the year 61 AH, the Prophet's S.A.W. grandson Husayn ibn Ali and his companions were killed in a bitter war. Prior to the battle, he and his party - many of whom were women and children - were denied safe passage, and were trapped in their camp with no access to food or water for 3 or more days.
To commemorate their courage and sacrifice, many Muslims make it a point to give water to those who, like Husayn and his companions, are unjustly deprived of it.
3. New year, new ways to do good
Most importantly, Muharram is the start of a new year for Muslims all around the world. For many, this is a chance to improve on their existing efforts to earn Allah's favour, and maybe even take on new challenges!
