Benefits of providing water

Providing water to a thirsty person or those in need of it is a special form of charity having much reward. Water is the source of life and to give water is likened to giving life. Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said “The best form of sadaqah is giving someone water.” (Ibn Majah)

Anger is a normal human emotion that is found within every person but turns destructive when not controlled. Mismanagement of anger causes one problems at work, in personal relationships, and in the overall quality of one’s life. Therefore the guidance given to us in the hadith is towards the management, control and curbing of anger.

Hazrat Ali is the paternal cousin and son-in-law of Rasulullah SAW, married to Hazrat Fatimah (Radiyallahu Anha). He was born approximately 10 years before Nubuwwat and he accepted Islam in its early stages at the age of ten. He was the first child to accept Islam. Some of his titles were ‘Al Murtadha’ (the accepted and beloved on by Allah) and ‘Abu Turab’ (father of the soil) - given to him by Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). He became the fourth Khalifah after the demise of Hazrat Uthman (Radiyallahu Anhu) and ruled for approximately 5 years until he was martyred on 17 Ramadan 40 A.H. at the age of 63 and was buried in Kufa.
Allah Ta’ala says in the Noble Qur’an:

“O, you who believe, spend of the good things which you have earned and of what We have produced forth for you from the earth, and choose not for your spending the bad, such as you yourselves would not accept it, except by closing your eyes to it (i.e. accept it only by overlooking its defects). And know that Allah is Independent, Ever-Praised.” (Surah Baqarah V. 267).

Every difficulty being experienced by an individual, group or nation is indeed a direct consequence of his/her/their actions. Man seriously believes that his “rotten and vile” habits, utterances and actions have not hindered and deterred him from acquiring his “achievements”.
