Hadith Explanation

Withholding Excess Water

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Whoever denies others his surplus water or pasturage, Allah shall deny him His blessings on the Day of Judgement.” [Ahmad]

Prophet Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) also said: “Do not sell surplus water.” [Sahih Bukhari]

Nowadays everything is considered a sellable commodity. As Muslims, we should beware of the boundaries and limits set by Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). The little money we make by disobeying Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) we will make even in His obedience, because it is a part of the rizq (provisions) He destined for us before He even created us.

Even if a person enjoyed themselves in Allah’s disobedience for their whole earthly life, on the Day that is 50,000 years long they will curse their shortsightedness, when more than anything else they will wish for shade under Allah’s throne and His blessings.
