QUALITIES OF ZAMZAM WATER

water

The taste and the composition of water of Zamzam water have virtually remained the similar ever since its origin some 4,000 years ago. Its composition has been found potable and has never been treated or chlorinated as in the case of public water. Almost all open wells are subjected to biological growth affecting the water but Zamzam water has never seen such a growth in its long span of survival. The opening of the well is now in the basement below the circumambulation floor (where pilgrims move around the Holy Kaaba) and is accessed through the staircase leading downwards.

Canned water Zamzam is available outside the Holy Kaaba complex at the bus boarding points. And now water of Zamzam can be had from the King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz Zamzam Water factory. This project is aimed to make sure a constant supply of pure Zamzam water, to preserve the spring of Zamzam itself, and to package and distribute Zamzam water in a new way.

In the Muslim belief, the Well of Zamzam was a gift from ALLAH Almighty sent to Bibi Hajra, wife of Hazrat Ibraheem (AS) and mother of Hazrat Ismaeel (AS). When crossing the desert with her son Hazrat Ismaeel (AS), She and Her son was very Thirsty and after surviving a lot with the help of ALLAH Almighty Indeed, the well was revealed to Bibi Hajra and its waters continue to flow till our days. The water of Zamzam is now obtainable to visitors and pilgrims in containers and water fountains in the namaz chambers and halls of the Holy Mosque.

There are 17 thousand containers of Zamzam water in the Holy Masjid. They are evenly distributed on all prayer spaces and corridors inside the Masjid and in the exterior courtyards. During the Saudi era, Zamzam water Well had undergone a sequence of improvements in its infrastructure and surrounding spaces. Its canals were purified, cleaned, and equipped with devices to make sure that pilgrims can have access to its water. Furthermore, a factory was established to package Zamzam water in order to organize the supply of water to the pilgrims and visitors of Makkah. The factory produces 200 thousands bottle per day and charges 5 Saudi Riyals for a 10-liter bottle. The factory’s every day production doubles in Holy Ramadan because of the high demand on the water of Zamzam.

Water is essential to life; it is in virtually every process that occurs in animals and plants. ALLAH Almighty tells us in the Holy Quran, verse 25:48-49,

And it is He who sends the winds as good tidings before His mercy, and We send down from the sky pure water. That We may bring to life thereby a dead land and give it as drink to those We created of numerous livestock and men.

4. Requesting ALLAH’S pardon

Increase in one’s sins and wrongdoings can also result in lack of wealth and spiritual assist in worldly stuff, as it leads to weakening of the connection with the ALLAH Almighty. One can get assist from prayers and asking ALLAH Almighty for forgiveness of its transgression from the true path, which would ease every matter and bring tranquil in one’s life. So, calling for mercy on past crimes does not only result in tranquillity in life issues, but also brings about Barakat from sources which we cannot even consider of.

  1. Reciting the Holy Quran

The great importance of the Divine Manuscript is apparent from the verity that it became the reason of transforming lives of the savage Arabs, who used to be most horrible enemies of one another. It gave them well balanced information about both religious and secular themes, and the similar illiterate Arabs ruled the world afterwards. It shows that understanding and reciting the Holy Quran improved their lives altogether and caused them to increase productivity in all walks of life. It contains certain Verses and Surahs which remind us of matters like blessings of ALLAH Almighty, His mercy and remembrance, belief and reliance in One ALLAH, and thankfulness to Him and many other helpful methods, which are all basis for attaining Barakat in life.

Verse 38:29 of Holy Quran,

[This is] a blessed Book which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], that they might reflect upon its verses and that those of understanding would be reminded.

Hence, this is a Sanctified Volume and it serves as means of prompt about various issues, and pondering on its verses is also considered as a blessed deed.

  1. Giving charity Zakaat

Conducting contributions in the way of ALLAH Almighty, be it helping the needy or poor, spending for the reason of Jihad, or donating to the construction of a masjid or etc. is said to be one of the best grounds for increasing one’s wealth beyond imagination. That is why

Hazrat Usman (R.A) after spending a lot for the ALLAH Almighty never had any decrease in his prosperity. The Holy Quran guides us in this matter as follows:

Verse 34:39 of Holy Quran;

Say, “Indeed, my Lord extends provision for whom He wills of His servants and restricts [it] for him. But whatever thing you spend [in His cause] – He will compensate it; and He is the best of providers.”

The above mentioned verse or Ayah shows that using one’s resources for purposes which fulfil the criteria that are developed by the religion of peace Islam, whether it is for spiritual or secular cause, will eventually result in the superlative and everlasting returns from ALLAH Almighty.

THINGS THAT BRING BARKAT TO MUSLIM’S WEALTH AND LIFE (PART 1)

Holy Quran

The common meaning of the word Barakah is “productivity or increase” in something. It could be in terms of easiness or betterment in someone’s living matters, or could also be taken in the context of improvement in prosperity. This boost is not something one time increase in something, rather it could be achieving supplementary with small effort, usage of time or resources etc. The religious interpretation of this terminology is the achievement of the sacred righteousness and sense of divine satisfaction with whatever one has, which is not observable, rather it becomes the necessary part of one’s personality.

In the present period of materialism, almost everyone is complaining about lack of one thing or another, e.g. some people complain over their income and say in a manner of protest that they can not understand why their earnings are not sufficient to fulfil family needs appropriately. For some people, it could also be a condition of anxiety at heart and not being capable to benefit from prayers to ALLAH Almighty because of shortage of concrete devotion. The solutions to all such problems lie in spending life according to the way of ALLAH Almighty and the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

Following are ten ways, which are within the boundaries of Islamic instructions, to get Barakah in one’s wealth, and life in common.

  1. Consciousness of ALLAH Almighty

The lack of realization of the presence of ALLAH is some of the prime causes of being lack of sufficient happiness and wealth. That is that reason why true Muslim never complain about any type of scarcity, rather it is the habit of those who have weak imaan (faith).

Verse 65:2-3

And when they have [nearly] fulfilled their term, either retain them according to acceptable terms or part with them according to acceptable terms. And bring to witness two just men from among you and establish the testimony for [the acceptance of] ALLAH. That is instructed to whoever should believe in Allah and the Last day. And whoever fears ALLAH – He will make for him a way out

  1. Reliance on One God, ALLAH Almighty

Issues like missing mental and happiness are general nowadays, everyone is looking for help somewhere, few visit psychologists, whereas others go to so called religious helpers, forgetting the reality that the Final Provider is only the Creator of the universe, ALLAH Almighty and that is the symbol of a weak faith.

Verse 65:3 of Holy Quran

And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon ALLAH – then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, ALLAH will accomplish His purpose. ALLAH has already set for everything a [decreed] extent.

  1. Thanking ALLAH Almighty for all blessings

Seeking constant help and rewards of the Most Beneficent through His dependence and remembrance is no doubt essential for us to be eligible for His blessings, but it is also extremely imperative to be grateful to the ALLAH Almighty for all His past and present excellent things, as the ALLAH Almighty address us in the Sacred Book as, verse 14:7:

And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favour]; but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.’
