What is so special about Zam Zam Water: Its origin!

bismillah-new-themeZam zam water dates back to the time when Hajar (May Allah be pleased with her) was left in the desert with her son by Prophet Ibrahim (Alayhi Salam) . He did this by Allah’s command. As Hajar ran out of food, her milk dried up and her son Ismail (Alayhi Salam) began to cry out of hunger. Therefore, she climbed a hill now called As Safa searching for someone to help her and climbed down to the hill now called Marwa with no results. She did that seven times (going from one hill to the other) .

Suddenly, she heard a sound and at her amazement it came from beneath the feet of her baby Ismail (Alayhi Salam). This is when the angel Jibril hit the earth and water started to gush out.

The Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wasalam) said, (may Allah have mercy on the mother of Isma’eel)”If she had left the water, (flow naturally without her intervention), it would have been flowing on the surface of the earth.” {Sahih al-Bukhari 3365,Vol. 4, Book 55, Hadith 584}
