The Miracle of Zam Zam Water

byTariq Hussain and Moin Uddin Ahmed - Come the Hajj season, and I
amreminded of the wonders of Zumzum water. Let me go back to how it
allstarted. In 1971, an Egyptian doctor wrote to the European Press,
aletter saying that Zumzum water was not fit for drinking purposes....

thought that this was just a form of prejudice against theMuslims and
that since his statement was based on the assumption thatsince the
Ka'aba was a shallow place (below sea level) and located inthe center of
the city of Makkah, the wastewater of the city collectingthrough the
drains fell into well holding the water.

Fortunately,the news
came to King Faisal's ears who got extremely angry and decidedto
disprove the Egyptian doctor's provocative statement. He
immediatelyordered the Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources to
investigateand send samples of Zumzum water to European laboratories for
testingthe potability of the water.
The ministry then instructed the
JeddahPower and Desalination Plants to carry out this task. It was here
thatI was employed as a desalting engineer (chemical engineer to
producedrinking water from sea water). I was chosen to carry out
thisassignment. At this stage, I remember that I had no idea what the
wellholding the water looked like. I went to Makkah and reported to
theauthorities at the Ka'aba explaining my purpose of visit.

a man to give me whatever help was required. When we reachedthe well,
it was hard for me to believe that a pool of water, more likea small
pond, about 18 by 14 feet, was the well that supplied millionsof gallons
of water every year to hajis ever since itcame intoexistence at the
time of Hazrat Ibrahim A.S., many, manycenturies ago.Istarted my
investigations and took the dimensions of the well. I askedthe man to
show me the depth of the well.

First he took a showerand
descended into the water. Then he straightened his body. I saw thatthe
water level came up to just above his shoulders. His height wasaround
five feet, eight inches. He then started moving from one cornerto the
other in the well (standing all the while since he was notallowed to dip
his head into the water) in search of any inlet orpipeline inside the
well to see from where the water came in. However,the man reported that
he could not find any inlet or pipeline insidethe well.
I thought of another idea.

water could bewithdrawn rapidly with the help of a big transfer pump
which wasinstalled at the well for the Zumzum water storage tanks. In
this way,the water level would drop enabling us to locate the point of
entry ofthe water. Surprisingly, nothing was observed during the
pumpingperiod, but I knew that this was the only method by which you
couldfind the entrance of the water to the well. So I decided to repeat
theprocess. But this time I instructed the man to stand still at one
placeand carefully observe any unusual thing happening inside the
well.After a while, he suddenly raised his hands and
shouted,"Alhamdollillah! I have found it. The sand is dancing beneath my
feetas the water oozes out of the bed of the well."

Then he
movedaround the well during the pumping period and noticed the
samephenomenon everywhere in the well. Actually the flow of water into
thewell through the bed was equal at every point, thus keeping the
levelof the water steady. After I finished my observations I took
thesamples of the water for European laboratories to test. Before I
leftthe Ka'aba, I asked the authorities about the other wells around

Iwas told that these wells were mostly dry. When I
reached my office inJeddah I reported my findings to my boss who
listened with greatinterest but made a very irrational comment that the
Zumzum well couldbe internally connected to the Red Sea. How was it
possible when Makkahis about 75 kilometres away from the sea and the
wells located beforethe city usually remains dry? The results of the
water samples testedby the European laboratories and the one We analysed
in our ownlaboratory were found to be almost identical.
The difference between Zumzum water and other water (city water) was in the quantity of calcium and magnesium salts.

of these was slightly higher in Zumzum water. This may be whythis water
refreshes tired hajis, but more significantly, the watercontained
fluorides that have an effective germicidal action. Moreover,the remarks
of the European laboratories showed that the water was fitfor drinking.

the statement made by the Egyptian doctorwas proved false. When this
was reported to King Faisal he wasextremely pleased and ordered the
contradiction of the report in theEuropean Press. In a way, it was a
blessing that this study wasundertaken to show the chemical composition
of the water. In fact, themore you explore, the more wonders surface and
you find yourselfbelieving implicitly in the miracles of this water
that God bestowed asa gift on the faithful coming from far and wide to
the desert land forpilgrimage.

Let me sum up some of the features of Zumzum water :

has never dried up. On the contrary it has always fulfilled thedemand
for water. It has always maintained the same salt compositionand taste
ever since it came into existence. Its potability has alwaysbeen
universally recognised as pilgrims from all over the world visitKa'aba
every year for Hajj and umrah, but have never complained aboutit.
Instead, they have always enjoyed the water that refreshes them.Water
tastes different at different places.

Zumzum water'sappeal has
always been universal. This water has never been chemicallytreated or
chlorinated as is the case with water pumped into thecities. Biological
growth and vegetation usually takes place in mostwells. This makes the
water unpalatable owing to the growth of algaecausing taste and odour

But in the case of the Zumzumwater well, there wasn't
any sign of biological growth. Centuries ago,Hagar (raa) searched
desperately for water in the hills of Safa andMarwa to give to her newly
born son Ismail (pbuh) As she ran from oneplace to another in search of
water, her child rubbed his feet againstthe sand. A pool of water
surfaced, and by the grace of God, shapeditself into a well which came
to be called Zumzum water
