Wells from the time of Prophet in Madinah

Well of Uthman bin Affan(Roomah Well)

  • The Messenger of Allah motivated his companions to buy the water and donate it as a charity for Muslims.

  • Therefore, Uthman ibn Affan RA bought it and spent it for the cause of Allah. He then further dug the well and expanded it, and so it was renamed after him.
