How Slow Can You Go?

Yes, it is possible to take wudhu with such a slow water flow. There is no doubt that many of us are so used to letting the tap flow profusely without giving a second thought to how much water we are wasting.

“Do not waste water… Even if you are taking [ablution] from a big running river”
— Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) via Abu Dawood & Ibn Majah

Some people may still not be convinced that a small water flow will be enough. I say that’s just psychological and an over-reliance of having more than less. I personally found that cupping your hands together to collect the water before performing each wudhu action would create a water flow that is just as sufficient when cleansing each body part.

It may take a few seconds more than usual, but it’s so worth it because you’ll be saving bucket-loads before you know it.

NB: No water was wasted when taking this photograph.

    I reckon that water is as slow as the movement of the snail. I believe that we understand more and less about how water can affect our daily life. The more we understand, the more we utilize it in an effective and greener urban lifestyle. On the other hand, the less we understand, the less we keep perserve and appreciate each and every drop of precious and simplest form of the earth life-giving material “WATER:.
