Q: I am a student in Malaysia and I am doing a PHD here. Once I came to my workstation in the Lab I found a mineral water bottle on my table and then I asked from my lab fellows sitting around me. No one knew about it. Please advise me according to Sharia what should I do with this water bottle?


A: Give the water bottle in sadaqah to a poor person with the intention that the reward of the sadaqah go to the owner of the bottle.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
