bismillah-new-themeThe other amazing fact about zam zam water is that it never dried up from the time it appeared on earth. Maybe as I am writing this you are not raising your eyebrows in awe so let me repeat it in other words. Do you realize that from the time of Prophet Ibrahim (Alayhi Salam) zam zam water is still flowing ?

Furthermore, it is a source of water in a well but by the grace of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) there is no biological contaminations in zam zam water. Scientific proofs show that zam zam water contains healing benefits due to its high contents of calcium, magnesium salts and natural fluorides which have germicidal properties. Bacterias cannot survive in zam zam water. Allahu Akbar and Alhamdulillah!


The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “The best water on the face of the earth is the water of Zam-zam; it is a kind of food and a healing from sickness.”

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}
