Ruling on selling water

The ruling on selling water differs according to its source and location, so if this water is in a river or a well that no one owns from people, then in this case it is not permissible for a Muslim to own or sell it or prevent others from using it, and scholars have inferred this with the hadith of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, who came in it : (Muslims are partners in three: in food, water and fire) . [1] As for what is meant by water in the hadith is water that a person does not possess in a vessel or a pool, and it is also the public water that a person does not extract by himself from a well he owns, but if this water is under the possession of a person and in his possession, it is permissible to sell it for possession of it, As for the curiosity of the water that comes from the rivers and streams of water in the possession of man, it is what the scholars differ and the most correct is that it is not permissible to sell them.[2]
