 The Muslim Council of Elders, under the Chairmanship of His Eminence Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, affirmed that water is the foundation of life on planet Earth and that no environmental or economic system can persist without the presence of clean water suitable for drinking and use. The Council emphasized that in Islam, water is described as a source of life. Therefore, it strongly encourages the rational consumption of water and prohibits extravagance in its use.

On the occasion of World Water Day, which falls on March 22nd of each year, the Muslim Council of Elders stated that sharing water resources and ensuring their efficient and equitable distribution are significant challenges facing humanity. These challenges include climate change, water scarcity, water pollution, deteriorating water quality, and escalating tensions related to water in many regions worldwide. The Council called for collaboration among nations, institutions, and individuals to support efforts aimed at rationalizing water consumption and fostering a culture of proper practices and behaviors in this regard.
