This Zam Zam drinking water dispenser is one of many outside the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah. It is available free to all Muslims and is distributed to many parts of Saudi Arabia from Makkah, where it originates. Water is a very precious commodity in this country. Zam Zam water has been and still is a never-ending source of water within the kingdom. There are several different versions of the story of Hagar and Abraham and how the Zam Zam Well in Makkah was discovered. Even the Old Testament of the Bible has a version as well. Many people believe that Zam Zam water has special healing powers. I wrote a more detailed article a while back on my other blog about this topic, so if you’re interested in learning more, please click here for more info about the fascinating Zam Zam Well.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
