Photos of Zam Zam Water Being Served in Masjid Al Haram (The Holy Kabah)

“Verily, the first House (of worship) appointed for mankind was that at Bakkah (Makkah), full of blessing, and guidance for the entire creation Al-Aalameen. In it are manifest signs the Maqaam of Ibrahim (Standing place of Abraham); whosoever enters it, he attains security…”

(Quran 3:96-97)

“O our Lord! I have made some of my offspring to dwell in an uncultivable valley by Your Sacred House (Kabah in Makkah), O our Lord, so that they may perform Salah. So fill some hearts among men with love towards them, and O Allah provide them with fruits so that they may give thanks.”

(Quran 14:37)

Abdulah Ibn Abbaas (radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu) narrated that the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “May Allah bestow his mercy upon Hajar, the mother of Ismail, had she let go of the water of Zamzam it would have become a flowing spring on the face of the earth (rather than a well) whose water shall never dry.” (Ahmad)

Ibn ‘Abbaas (radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu) narrated that the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “One difference between us and the hypocrites is that they could not drink much from Zamzam.”

(Ibn Majah)

Ibn ‘Abbaas (radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu) narrates that he gave the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wasallam) the water of Zamzam and the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wasallam) drank the water of Zamzam whilst standing. (Bukhari)

The Prophet (salallahu alayhi wasallam) said to Abu Dhar (radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu) who had stayed near the Kabah and its coverings for forty days and nights with no food or drink other than Zamzam, “How long have you been here? “Abu Dharr (radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu) said: “I have been here for thirty days and nights.” The Prophet (salallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “Who has been feeding you? ”He said, “I have had nothing but Zamzam water, and I have become so fat that I have folds of fat on my stomach. I do not feel any of the tiredness or weakness of hunger and I have not become thin.” The Prophet (salallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Verily, it is blessed, it is food that nourishes.”

(Muslim) ”

Jabir bin Abdullah (radiyallahu ta’ala ‘anhu) narrates that the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “The water of Zamzam is for whatever it is drunk for.”

(Ibn Majah)
