Authorities dismiss rumors on Zamzam

Thursday, August 05, 2010 08:27:47 AM, Staff Reporter

Zamzam has historic as well as scientific significance

Malegaon: The Presidency of the Two Holy Mosques Affairs dismissed reports on Wednesday that Zamzam water from the sacred well might not be clean or hygienic and maintained that its distribution was being monitored round the clock.

“Utmost care is given to the blessed Zamzam water. The pumping of water out of the well is being monitored regularly,” Arab News quoted a presidency spokesman.

He added random samples were constantly taken from the well and checked to make sure that the water was fit for human consumption.


“We also take samples from the containers and check them,” it added.

The presidency asked citizens and foreigners to ensure that holy water was being hygienically stored, as leaving it in the sun could contaminate it.

The blessed water is pumped out of the historic well via stainless steel pipes and filtered using ultraviolet technology. It is then transported to the cooling stations before it is distributed.


Millions and millions of people from around the world who come to Makkah drink Zamzam and also take along with them back home. Saudi Arabia takes special care to ship Zamzam water in various parts of the Kingdom including the Holy Mosque in Madinah.


Located inside the Holy Mosque in Makkah and live since centuries, Zamzam not only has historic significance, but time and again it is scientifically proved that the Water has in it ingredients that are not part of normal water.
