Supporting WaterAid through Islam

The importance of water in Islam

The Qu’ran describes water as a sacred gift from Allah – it gives life, sustains and purifies. But around the world many Muslim communities don’t have access to clean water, impacting their health, opportunities and religious practices like Wudu.
"Water is very important. It plays a significant role for everyone who prays to God because God loves cleanliness."
Ibrahim, Imam, Sierra Leone

785 million people in the world – one in ten – do not have clean water close to home. Support WaterAid through your faith group, or your charity donations, and help bring this basic human right to everyone.
