Question About Zamzam Water

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

salaam to everyone,

i have been searching for information about zamzam water, and i read that u can make dua while drinking it (or is it after u drink it?). i also read that u should drink "till the water reaches the ribs". i was wondering if you don't have enough zamzam water, is it allowed to mix it with normal tap water and still use it as zamzam water for dua or should i in this case drink what i have. i want to make dua but i don't have much to drink till it reaches my ribs. please inform me on this matter.

jaza'akumillaah ghair.

In reality the Zam Zam water that you get in Saudia Arabia is heavily 'diluted' with normal water . The prime reason for this is that the Zam Zam spring aquifer has been damaged by all the building done in Mecca particularly the high rise buildings. As such Zam Zam has been reduced to a trickle and now they dilute it and give it to the pilgrims

Not that I doubt your words or anything, but may I ask what your source is? Also, you referred to other water supplies as "normal", as if Zamzam is abnormal? Aside from the stories around Zamzam water, physically, unless the Saudis are injecting it with something, it would be normal water just as all other water is. It rains from the sky, or comes from snow melt. It moves under the land and is pumped to the surface when it gets near Mecca.

there was an article posted on here a while back and several Saudi residents have subsequently confirmed it. As to normal and not normal that is a question of faith

I dont see what faith has to do with anything in this matter. Not to be offensive, but...I just dont get it. What is there to have faith in? You dont have to answer if you dont want to, but to me, it sounds almost the same as saying...I have faith that the grass in my backyard is holy. Well, what is that supposed to mean? Looks like grass, smells like grass, feels like grass. So id presume its grass. Same goes for Zamzam water.

And with water, it mixes with water in the sky and rains, and remixes and rains as you said. So...i dunno. It just boggles the mind.

And, just a thought. What about before the time the angel exposed the water? the same processes would still have occurred. For billions of years before the exposure event occured.

Maybe all water is holy then, in some proportion. Its plausible to believe that zamzam water is already in all of us.

as I said its a matter of faith. Its Holy by association. Not sure what aspect of this you ae struggling with. You aren't muslim therefore I am not getting into a theological philosophical discussion. Simple summary its a matter of faith :)

    • The Saudis have no shame in declaring that they are pro-Israel and anti-Shia: https://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-5047348,00.html   https://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-5047289,00.html
    • Brother, all Muslim women who don't observe Hijab know that it's Wajib. They all know that it's in Quran. Your approach should be changed. When I said be nice to her, I mean be super nice. For example, see what she likes to drink in the morning. Wake up early, GI to kitchen, make a perfect coffee or whatever and go to her room and give it to her. You should try hard. It's a Jihad. You can also peel fruit and give it to her during the day. She should feel that her brother is supportive and trustful first. I know you are good to her now, but for a big change like Hijab observation, you should try harder. When I was back in Iran, I used to do similar things for my mother, and it affects on the person. I made breakfast and gave it to my mum on her bed when she woke up. I didn't do that to ask my mum to do sth, I did that because I love my mum. I realized that women like it. After several months of supporting and being nice, you can gradually start talking about Hijab. That time you can be HOPEFUL to see some small changes in her dress style (maybe wearing long shorts or leggings instead of short ones). Regardless of whatever result you'll get, you did your effort and Jihad. If it's a small change, you should be proud of yourself. 
    • 1. The narrations from Ahl albaayt AS indicate the permission of wearing black clothes in  month of Muharram  for the  mourning for Imam Hussein over the calamities  faced by him 2.  The views of ulema indicate that the black clothes are not permissible while praying. The simple question arises here does it mean that the praying during the month of Muharram with black clothes is Makrooh . haram? Similarly, if the Kaaba is clothed black in all does it mean that all the persons praying there have makrooh  prayers because of black Kaaba? would you please like to clarify? wasalam
    • See this http://holywatcher.narod.ru/iblis.pdf Very dangerous path.  They keep saying that Iblis did not prostrate because he did not want to worship other than Allah. However the Quran, and Iblis' response in the Quran is not so! Iblis says in the Quran that he did not prostrate because Adam a.s. was made of 'mud' ... in essence saying he is higher... or in other terminology known as 'Racism' and Arrogance.  So why and where on earth are these people forcing the image that Iblis acted out of love for God?? Completely absurd.  @Haydar Husayn
