Know what Zamzam is, as President Nana Addo gives hope of discovering our own Zamzam.
Follow the celebrations of Eid-Ul-Adha on Saturday July 9, 2022. President Nana Addo assured the Ghanaian citizenry to have confidence because very soon things will run smoothly for us a country. He said “ we are in difficult place. The world is in a difficult place. Leaders around the world, like we are doing here in Ghana, are working assiduously to resolve the fundamental challenges that have plunged the world into the current economic condition in which it finds itself. But, just as the efforts of Hagar resulted in the discovery of the Zamzam well, from which we drink to this day, I am confident that, soon, we shall also discover our own Zamzam.
Zamzam water is believed to be blessed holy water in Islam. The source of this water is the Zamzam well and it is situated within Masjid-al-Haram in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. The well is located 20 metres east from the Al-Kaaba, which is known as the holiest place in Islam. The history of Zamzam water is as interesting as its benefits, and both re-emphasize its religious importance.
History of Zamzam Water
As narrated by Ibn ‘Abbaas, Prophet Ibrahim was ordered by Allah to take away his wife, Hagar and his son, Ismail to Makkah. During this time, Makkah was a barren land. Following the commands of Allah, the Prophet left his wife and son with some dates and water and returned home. After spending some time on this barren land, the dates and water ran out. As young Ismail started crying with thirst, Hagar started looking for water. She went running up and down seven times the hills of Safa and Marwa (that is why circumambulating the Kaaba seven times is an important ritual of Umrah and Hajj both). In this fretful state, Hagar made all efforts and later located a spot on the barren land where water started gushing out miraculously. She carefully collected some water for herself and started feeding it to Ismail. The water that gushed out came to be known as the blessed water of Zamzam.
