become an inventor


Some of the most exciting creations made by humans started by asking a simple question: How can we make the impossible possible? Questions like this led to the invention of the water well, which is a tool to bring clean water from deep in the ground so that it can be used for wudu!

Many Muslims around the world still depend on water wells to have clean water to do a proper wudu. This wasn't always possible before! It's your turn to be an inventor.
