ZamZam Well – Islamic Holy Well

Venturing a little further from our usual British and Irish Holy Wells…

Zamzam is the name of a famous well in al-Masjid al-Haraam [the Sacred Mosque in Makkah], which is thirty-eight cubits away from the Ka’bah. It is the well from which Allah quenched the thirst of Ismaa’eel the son of Ibraaheem  when he was an infant.
