The Prophet (PBUH) said: “The best water on the face of the earth is the water of Zamzam; it is a kind of food and
a healing from sickness.” (Saheeh al-Jaami’, 3302).

[/b] The Prophet (PBUH)drank it, did wudoo’ with it and poured it on his head. He used to carry Zamzam water in
small vessels and large containers in order to pour it on the sick and give it to them to drink.
(al-Silsilat al-Saheehah, 883).

One of the Sahaabah said:
we used to call it al-Shabbaa’ah (satisfying) and it helped us to take care our families (ie. it was filling and
helped them to do without food, it was also sufficient to nourish children).
(al-Silsilat al-Saheehah li’l-Albaani2685).

The Prophet (PBUH) said:
“The water of Zamzam is for whatever it is drunk for.” (Narrated by Ibn Maajah)

The Prophet (PBUH) said:
” The most sublime of all earthly waters is that of zamzam;
therein one finds food for the hungry and medicine for the ill.”[ At- Tabarani ]

“Zamzam water is what one intends to drink it for.
When one drinks it to be healed, Allah heals him;
when one drinks it to be full, Allah makes him full;
and when one drinks it to quench his thirst, Allah quenches it. ” [ Ahmad, and Ibn Majah]
Since Zamzam water serves whatever purpose and intention for which it is drank; provided it is with sincerity:
The scholars and the righteous have tried this and they drank from it with the intention of fulfilling their needs and
seeking cure for the sick or relief from poverty or catastrophe and surely Allah eased for them achieving their needs.

So next time when one gets the opportunity to drink Zamzam, one should grab the opportunity to pray for: a healthy body,
sharp mind, forgiveness for sins, life in Jannah after death, an honourable death on the day of Jummah, and all one’s
physical and spiritual needs of this world and Hereafter.
