Making the Most of Waqf Deeds at the End of Ramadan

During Ramadan, every good deed will be rewarded many times over. Consider how this holy month is filled with long-term deeds like waqf. The advantages and virtues are undeniably growing.

ACTNews, GAZA – Ramadan is a month full of forgiveness and blessings. Comparing to other months, the reward for each good deed in this month is many times greater. It includes the waqf.

According to a hadith, Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity) is one of three deeds whose reward will not be interrupted or cease to flow even after the person is dead.

As quoted from sunnah.com, 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)." [Muslim].

For this reason, Global Wakaf-ACT has launched several waqf programs this Ramadan as a place where philanthropists can carry out prolonged deeds. The Palestinian Waqf Well program is one of them. Global Wakaf-ACT is stepping up its efforts to bring clean water to Gaza.

 

This Ramadan, the Waqf Well in the Abu Huthaifa Annoa'man area of Jabalia, north Gaza, was completed. Because the water was previously salty, it could not be consumed by residents or used for ablution or bathing.

According to Mukaffiy of the Global Humanity Network-ACT team, this well with a depth of tens of meters can produce 10,000 liters of clean water per hour. "During Ramadan, this well is like a gift for the locals. This water source is accessible to 500 families," Mukaffiy stated.

Mukaffiy added that ACT Palestine implemented Waqf Well program in several areas of Gaza during Ramadan. However, many areas still lack access to water sources.

"This waqf well is inextricably linked to the generosity of Indonesians who care about Gazans. They require our assistance to get out of the water crisis," Mukaffiy stated []
