Q. What is Zamzam water?
I heard it has healing properties, is that really true?
A. Dear Sarah,
Zamzam is a well in Makkah that sprang 4000 years ago when Ishmael the son of Abraham and Hagar pounded the ground with his feet out of thirst while his mother Hagar was running in the desert looking for water for her crying infant.
Allaah sent the Archangel Gabriel who let the water spring under the feet of Ishmael. And ever since, the water has been springing.
Scientifically, Zamzam water has some chemical properties and minerals that make it unique.
In 1983, the Journal of the New England Water Works Association published a paper stating that “A total of 34 elements have been found with calcium, magnesium, sodium, and chloride in the highest concentrations.
Hydrochemical study of Zamzam water indicates that it is a sodium chloride water and of meteoritic origin. The four toxic elements arsenic, cadmium, lead, and selenium have been found below the danger level of human consumption.”
Zamzam water is still water, but is very unique.
The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) told the Muslims that Zamzam water is a food for those who seek food, and a remedy for those who seek remedy.
Yours in humanity,
