‘The Story of Hajjar’: Muslim Women and Water Conservation
NOVEMBER 4, 2011
The Alliance of Religions and Conservation has launched a special water conservation guide aimed at Muslim women and families. Every year at Hajj, Muslims commemorate the struggle of Hajjar; an Egyptian hand-maid and second wife of the Prophet Ibrahim [pbuh] who was stranded in the desert without water for her child. The hajj pilgrims walk, as she did, between two mountains in the Saudi Arabian wilderness known as Safa and Marwa to remember her search for water.
