The Story of Zam Zam Water

Zamzam
water is the most blessed water; it is a miracle of Allah the Almighty, and His
chosen gift to His Prophet Isma`il and his mother Hajar and through them to all
posterity.

The Prophet (peace and
blessings be upon him) is reported to have said, “It is a most blessed (water),
good nourishment, as well as a source of healing for ailments.” (Muslim)

He also said, “It
can be drunk for whatever good purpose one has in mind. If you were to drink it
for healing, Allah will cure your sickness through it; if you were to drink it
hoping thereby to seek Allah’s protection, Allah will protect you….” (Al-Hakim)

Inspired by such traditions of
the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), the early Muslims used to offer
various supplications while drinking Zamzam water; one of the most
comprehensive and yet concise of such du`aa’s is the following; it
has been attributed to the Prophet’s companion Ibn `Abbas (may Allah be pleased
with him):

(Allaahumma inni as’aluka `ilman naïf`an wa `amalan
mutaqabbalan wa rizqan wasi`an wa shifa’an min kulli da’in)

O Allah, I ask of You to grant
me beneficial knowledge, acceptable deeds, abundant provision, and healing/cure
from all ailments.

May Allah inspire us all to
continually turn to Him in supplications with true feelings of reverence, and

in fear and hope, amen.
