The Miracle Source Of Water


The Well of Zamzam , which is considered a  ‘Miracle Well’  by the believers of Islam, is located  within the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca,Saudi Arabia.This well has been generating water for the last thousands of  years. And has been providing water for millons of pilgrims  who come to this sacred mosque in Mecca .It is phenomenal indeed! This well has never gone dry regardless of the millions of liters of water consumed every year. It is believed in  Islam that this well  was  a miraculously generated source of water from God.The story dates back thousands of years ago when Abraham's (Ibrahim) infant son Ismael was thirsty and kept crying for water and was stamping the ground when water surged out. Millions of pilgrims visit the well each year while performing the Hajj or Umrah pilgrimages and  grab the opportunity to savour this water.They also take back to their homeland  a few bottles of zamzam. Many believe that the zam zam water has healing powers too.
