Sadaqa Jariya for my Grandfather Muhammad Yousuf Chowdhury
Assalamualaikum Warahmatullah Wabarakatuh.
My Grandfather Muhammad Yousuf Chowdhury (May Allah Have Mercy On Him) passed away a couple of years ago.
I’ve made the intention to fundraise for a water pump this Ramadan in his name inshaAllah, My target is £250.
It will be a sadaqa jariya (ongoing charity) for him Insha’Allah.
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); a knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (for the deceased).” (Sahih Muslim)
This Waterpump will provide much-needed water to poor families in Bangladesh and this includes our beloved Rohinghan Brothers and Sisters InshaAllah. InshaAllah it which will provide water for hundreds of thirsty refugees every day.
The Prophet ﷺ said: the best charity is water.
So InshaAllah for every sip a person takes out of this water well, He will gain reward. Subhanallah imagines the rewards and the du’as he will be receiving and inshaAllah this will be a Sadaqa Jariya for him and us all. So even after we pass away and the water pump is still working we will gain rewards.
What a brilliant investment! Please DONATE/SHARE with friends and family inshaAllah.
Here’s some more info regarding the appeal.. In Bangladesh, the average person drinks between 5-9 glasses of water per day. Unfortunately for many around the world, even a drop of water is a luxury they cannot afford. Hundreds of thousands of people called the Rohingya have been fleeing the genocide against them In Myanmar and have become displaced in neighbouring Bangladesh, where they lack the essentials of life, especially water.
The acute lack of water means that the little water available is shared amongst tens of thousands of refugees increasing the risks of contamination and the spread of water-borne diseases such as cholera and diarrhoea. Every year over 3 million people die from these water bourn diseases around the world.
The UNCHR’s public health officer Hervé Isambert has warned that “An outbreak can start at any time.” Our Rohingya Muslim brothers and sisters are still not safe in Bangladesh and so it is essential that we help them with more water sources to help sustain their shattered lives and avert an impending disaster.
