It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abdullah bin Umar (May Allah be pleased with him), that the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) passed by a person performing wuthu (ablution). He (Peace be upon him) said: Do not waste (water), do not use more water than you need.
In the light of this and other such Hadith (sayings) of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) , wasting water and using it more than necessary has been declared Makruh (Undesirable), as given in Hashiya Al Tahtahawi, Pg No: 80
Abridged translation: Using more water than what is reasonable is Makruh.
When water is available, it is thought that since so much water is available, one person's wastage will not affect it. Every person's wastage of water in this manner, depletes the stock of water in a subtle way and gradually paucity of water tightens its grip.
In regard to water, the Islamic system says that whether water is available in plenty or in mere drops, conservation of water is to be the maxim all the time. This is not the responsibility of a single nation or group, but it is the responsibility of each and every person of this planet. The Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) has not only ordered all of us to conserve water, but he has ordered us to abstain from dirtying water. As given in a Hadith in Sahih Muslim, Vol 1, Pg No: 138:
Translation: Hadhrat Jabir razi narrates from the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) that he ordered not to urinate/defecate in stationary water. Again in Majma Uz Zawaaid, there is prohibition against doing so in flowing water. (Majma Uz Zawaaid, Vol 1, Pg No: 482, Hadith No: 996)
From the above we as Muslims are directly responsible to conserve water. The incursion was integrated into Islam and thus achieving the goals of the Australian curriculum inside an Islamic context. Alhamdulillah.
