Rewards of distributing water

Sahih Al - Bukhari Hadith
Volume 2, Book 21, Number 287:

The Prophet (sallalahu alayhi wa salam) said, "Between my house and my pulpit there is a garden of the gardens of Paradise, and my pulpit is on my fountain tank (i.e. Al-Kauthar)."


Sahih Al - Bukhari Hadith
Volume 3, Book 40, Number 551:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle (sallalahu alayhi wa salam) said, "While a man was walking he felt thirsty and went down a well and drank water from it. On coming out of it, he saw a dog panting and eating mud because of excessive thirst. The man said, 'This (dog) is suffering from the same problem as that of mine. So he (went down the well), filled his shoe with water, caught hold of it with his teeth and climbed up and watered the dog. Allah thanked him for his (good) deed and forgave him." The people asked, "O Allah's Apostle! Is there a reward for us in serving (the) animals?" He replied, "Yes, there is a reward for serving any animate."


Sahih Al - Bukhari Hadith
Volume 3, Book 40, Number 557:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet MUHAMMAD (sallalahu alayhi wa salam) said, "There are three types of people whom Allah will neither talk to, nor look at, on the Day of Resurrection. (They are):

1. A man who takes an oath falsely that he has been offered for his goods so much more than what he is given,

2. a man who takes a false oath after the 'Asr prayer in order to grab a Muslim's property, and

3. a man who with-holds his superfluous water. Allah will say to him, "Today I will with-hold My Grace from you as you with-held the superfluity of what you had not created".
