HISTORY OF WATER OF ZAMZAM

zam-zam-history

Observe, how reliant upon and submissive to ALLAH Almighty Prophet Ibraheem (AS) was. Hazrat Ibraheem (AS) had left His 2 dear ones, Bibi Hajra and Hazrat Ismaeel (AS) in a barren area in city Makkah. Makkah at the time was completely isolated with not any evident buildings or people living there as there was no water for survival. There, Hazrat Ibraheem (AS) left them.  Following the order of ALLAH Almighty, Hazrat Ibraheem (AS) left.

Verse 37 of Surah Ibraheem;

Our Lord, I have settled some of my descendants in an uncultivated valley near Your sacred House, our Lord, that they may establish prayer. So make hearts among the people incline toward them and provide for them from the fruits that they might be grateful.

Bibi Hajra, the mother of Hazrat Ismaeel (AS) settled with Her son where Hazart Ibraheem (AS) left them. She drank from the water that, Hazrat Ibraheem (AS) had left for them. This water ultimately ran out as the water container dried up. As a result, Bibi Hajra became thirsty, and so did Her son who started crying and became unsettled because of his extreme thirst.

Bibi Hajra didn’t like to see Hazrat Ismaeel (AS) in that state and She set forth looking for water. Safa being the mountain closest to Her, She climbed it and looked down at the valley to see that if she could find some water or anyone to assist Her. She found no one there and so She descended from the Hill until She reached the valley. Then She climbed to Hill of Marwa in keeping Her search for water but to no avail.

She went back to Safa then back again to Marwah for many times. Then after she prayed a lot, there was Angel Hazrat Jibraeel (AS), who hit the ground with his wing until pure and fresh water emerged. That became well-known as Zamzam water. The mother of Hazrat Ismaeel (AS) gathered the water with her hands and collected it while it was springing out. Bibi Hajra thanked ALLAH Almighty, the One who endows countless bounties upon His slaves.

During Hajj and Umrah, pilgrims are recommended to drink water of Zamzam to their fill to quench their thirst. They also maintain the tradition of bringing it back for their family and friends.

Verse 2:158 of Holy Quran;

 Indeed, as-Safa and al-Marwah are among the symbols of ALLAH. So whoever makes Hajj to the House or performs ‘umrah – there is no blame upon him for walking between them. And whoever volunteers good – then indeed, ALLAH is appreciative and Knowing.

O ALLAH Almighty, we ask you to grant us Hajj and Umrah and the visit of the Prophet Mosque (Masjid-e-Nabwi) and Holy Kaaba. Ameen.
