Prophet (PBUH) said to Hazrat Saad (RA) what waste is this? When Hazrat Saad (R.A.) asked if the water is wasted during Waddo? Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said yes, even if you are performing Waddo on a stream. Misbahuddin Farid said that during a survey it was discovered that 95 per cent of the mosques, religious institutions and imambargahs did not pay their water bills.
