Pure water is the world’s first and foremost medicine. It possess the healing power unlike any natural thing. And when we talk about Aab e Zamzam, there is certainly no comparison. The blessed water, which quenches thirsty Hajjis and they bring it for their family and relatives, has the benefits we never know. The Zamzam is a 35 meter deep well situated in Mecca, in the east of Ka’ba. It is associated with Hazrat Ibrahim a.s, his wife Bibi Hajra a.s and his son Hazrat Ismail a.s.
How Did The Zamzam Well Spring?
When Bibi Hajra a.s made use of the small amount of food that Ibrahim a.s left for her and her baby, but ran out eventually and was soon thirsty and hungry-her milk dried up, her baby Ismail a.s became hungry and began to cry. Hajra a.s couldn’t afford seeing her son in pain so climbed up the hill which was later called As-Safa, to see if there was anyone in the horizon. She saw no one. She then climbed down, and reaching the valley, ran to the other hill, later called Al –Marwa, doing the same again, all this time her son twisting and turning in hunger. She repeated this seven times, and on the 7th time reached the top of the hill and heard a sound. To her amazement she found it coming from beneath the feet of Ismail a.s. At that point Jibra’eel a.s began digging the well of Zam-zam from beneath his feet. Hajra a.s was excited to contain the water, it being a desert and so arid and dry-the water would seep into the ground, and she tried making a pool to contain it.
From 4000 years, the well is supplying water continuously which itself is a miracle.
