        We  came  here again to perform the Omrah, and I am reminded of the
        wonders  of  Zam-zam.  Let  me  go  back to how it all started. In 1971, an
        Egyptian  doctor  wrote to the European Press, a letter saying that Zam-zam water
        was  not  fit  for drinking purposes. I immediately thought that this was just
        a  form  of  prejudice  against  the  Muslims and that since his statement
        was  based  on  the  assumption that since the Ka'aba was a shallow place
        (below  sea  level) and located in the center of the city of Makkah, the
         wastewater of the city collecting through the drains fell into well holding the water.
         Fortunately,  the  news came to King Faisal's ears who got extremely
        angry  and  decided  to  disprove  the Egyptian doctor's provocative statement.
        He  immediately  ordered  the  Ministry  of  Agriculture and Water Resources
        to  investigate  and send samples of Zam-zam water to European laboratories
        for testing  the  potability  of  the  water.  The ministry then instructed
        the Jeddah Power and Desalination Plant to carry out this task.

        It  was  here  that  I  was  employed  as  a  desalting  engineer
        (chemical  engineer)to  produce  drinking water from sea water). I was chosen to
        carry out  this assignment. At this stage, I remember that I had no idea what
        the well  holding  the  water looked like. I went to Makkah and reported to
        the authorities at the Ka'aba explaining my purpose of visit.

        They  deputed  a man to give me whatever help was required. When we
        reached  the  well,  it was hard for me to believe that a pool of water, more like
        a small  pond,  about  18  by 14 feet, was the well that supplied millions
        of gallons  of  water every year to hajis ever since it came into existence
        at the time of Hazrat Ibrahim A.S., many, many centuries ago.

        I  started  my  investigations and took the dimensions of the well. I
        asked  the  man  to  show  me  the  depth  of the well. First he took a shower
        and descended  into  the  water.  Then he straightened his body. I saw that
        the water level came up to just above his shoulders. His height was around
        five feet,  eight inches. He then started moving from one corner to the other
        in the  well  (standing all the while since he was not allowed to dip his
        head into  the  water) in search of any inlet or pipeline inside the well to
        see from  where  the water came in. However, the man reported that he could
        not find any inlet or pipeline inside the well.

        I  thought  of  another idea. The water could be withdrawn rapidly with
        the help of a big transfer pump which was installed at the well for the
        Zam-zam water storage tanks. In this way, the water level would drop enabling us
        to locate the point of entry of the water.

        Surprisingly,  nothing  was  observed during the pumping period, but I
        knew that  this  was the only method by which you could find the entrance of
        the water  to  the  well.  So  I decided to repeat the process. But this time
        I instructed  the  man  to stand still at one place and carefully observe
        any unusual  thing happening inside the well. After a while, he suddenly
        raised his  hands  and  shouted,  "Alhamdollillah!  I  have  found it. The sand
        is dancing  beneath  my  feet  as the water oozes out of the bed of the well."

        Then  he  moved  around  the well during the pumping period and noticed
        the same phenomenon everywhere in the well. Actually the flow of water into
        the well  through  the  bed was equal at every point, thus keeping the level
        of the  water  steady.  After I finished my observations I took the samples
        of the  water  for  European laboratories to test. Before I left the Ka'aba,
        I asked the authorities about the other wells around Makkah.

        I  was  told  that these wells were mostly dry. When I reached my office
        in Jeddah  I  reported my findings to my boss who listened with great
        interest but  made  a  very  irrational  comment  that  the  Zam-zam  well  could
        be internally  connected  to  the  Red Sea. How was it possible when Makkah
        is about 75 kilometres away from the sea and the wells located before the
        city usually  remains  dry?  The  results  of  the  water  samples tested by
        the European  laboratories  and  the one We analysed in our own laboratory
        were found to be almost identical.

        The  difference  between  Zam-zam water and other water (city water) was
        in the  quantity  of  calcium  and  magnesium  salts. The content of these
        was slightly higher in zam-zam water. This may be why this water refreshes
        tired hajis,  but  more  significantly, the water contains fluorides that have
        an effective   germicidal  action.  Moreover,  the  remarks  of  the European
        laboratories showed that the water was fit for drinking. Hence the
        statement made by the Egyptian doctor was proved false.

        When  this was reported to King Faisal he was extremely pleased and
        ordered the  contradiction  of the report in the European Press. In a way, it was
        a blessing that this study was undertaken to show the chemical composition
        of the  water. In fact, the more you explore, the more wonders surface and
        you find yourself believing implicitly in the miracles of this water that
        Allah bestowed  as  a gift on the faithful coming from far and wide to the
        desert land for pilgrimage.

        Let me sum up some of the features of zam-zam water.

        This  well  has never dried up. On the contrary it has always fulfilled
        the demand  for  water.  It has always maintained the same salt composition
        and taste  ever  since  it  came into existence. Its potability has always
        been universally  recognised  as  pilgrims  from all over the world visit
        Ka'aba every year for Hajj and umrah, but have never complained about it.
        Instead, they  have  always  enjoyed  the  water  that  refreshes them.
        Water tastes different at different places.

        Zam-zam water's appeal has always been universal. This water has never
        been chemically treated or chlorinated as is the case with water pumped into
        the cities. Biological growth and vegetation usually takes place in most wells.

        Do u know the miracles of zamzam?...?

        ZamZam water level is
        around 10.6 feet below the
        surface. It is the miracle of
        Allah that when Zam Zam
        was pumped continuously
        for more than 24 hours with
        a pumping rate of 8,000
        liters per second, water level
        dropped to almost 44 feet
        below the surface,

        BUT WHEN
        the level immediately
        elevated again to 13 feet
        after 11 minutes.
        8,000 liters per second
        means that
        8,000 x 60 = 480,000 liters
        per minute
        480,000 liters per minutes
        that 480,000 x 60 = 28.8
        Million liters per hour
        And 28.8 Million liters per
        means that 28,800,000 x 24
        = 691.2 Million liters per day
        So they pumped 690 Millions
        liters of ZamZam in 24 hours,
        but it was re-supplied in 11
        minutes only.

        There are 2 miracles here, the
        first that ZamZam was re-
        filled immediately, & the
        second is that Allah Holds the
        extra-ordinaril y powerful
        Aquifer for not throwing
        extra ZamZam out of the
        well, otherwise the world
        will SINK.

        It is the translation
        of the word ZamZam, which
        means Stop !!!!!!!!!!!!
        Stop !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! said by
        Hajirah Alaih As Salaam.

        Zimam is an Arabic word, it is
        the rope / REIN attached to
        bridle or noseband & it is
        used / pulled to stop the
        running animal.

        Zamzam water
        has no colour or smell, but it
        has a distinct taste

        This makes the water unpalatable owing to the growth of algae causing
        taste and odour problems.

        But  in  the  case  of  the  Zam-zam  water  well, there wasn't any sign
        of biological  growth. Centuries ago, Bibi Hajra A.S. searched desperately
        for water  in the hills of Sufwa and Murwa to give to her newly born son Hazrat
        Ismail  A.S.  As  she ran from one place to another in search of water,
        her child  rubbed  his  feet against the sand. A pool of water surfaced, and
        by the  grace  of  Allah,  shaped  itself  into a well which came to be called Zam-zam water.

So who is the person whom did these experiments?

Why does he not publish his name and findings and have it verified by other scientists?

Where is the documentation to support the claims?

Muslims appear to have a habit of believing unsubstantiated "rumours". Nothing less that disinformation propaganda.
