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.
