Water is among the most superior drink

Is there a Hadith which states water is among the most superior drinks of this world and the Hereafter?


Yes. Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has recorded the Hadith wherein Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“[Among] the most superior drink in this world and the Hereafter is water”

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 4 pg. 138. Also see: Al Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 7477, Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 5510, 5675 and Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 5 pg. 35)

Imam Hakim has declared the Hadith authentic and Hafiz Dhahabi concurs.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
