 There are authentic texts that indicate the usefulness of 
Zamzam water and that show its nourishing and healing

It has always has this usefulness since Allah caused it to flow

for mother of Isma’eel (peace be upon both of them). It is
blessed water.

 The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him)

said about Zamzam water, “It is blessed (water) and it also
serves as food.” [Recorded by Muslim]

It is authentically reported from the Messenger of Allah

(blessings and peace be upon him) that he told Abu Dharr
(may Allah be pleased with him) who had stays between the
Ka’abah and its screens for thirty nights or days and there was
no food for him but the water of Zamzam. The Prophet
(blessings and peace be upon him) told him, “It serves as
food.” Other collectors of the Hadeeth, add, in their version,
“And it is a good healer.”

Zamzam is great water that gushed out when Angel Gabriel

struck the ground with his wing, and Allah allowed Isma’il and
his mother to drink therefrom. [Al-Bukhaari 3364]

It was Zamzam that was used to wash the heart of Allah’s

Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him). Merits and
benefits of Zamzam water are mentioned in many authentic
Hadeeths. Among them is the following statement of Allah’s
Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him), “The best
water on the face of the earth is Zamzam water. It serves as
food and it is a good healer.” [Saheeh Al-Jaami’ 3302]

It is equally recorded that the Messenger of Allah [blessings

and peace be upon him] drank from Zamzam water, performed
ablution with it and poured it over his head. The Prophet
(blessings and peace be upon him) would also hold Zamzam
water in vessels and water-skin and pour it on the sick and
make them drink thereof. [See: As-Silsilah As-Saheehah 883]

 The Prophet’s companion (‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas – may Allah be

pleased with him) said, “We used to call it Shabbaa’ah (that
which satiates); and we used to find it a good helper in
satisfying the family’s nutritional needs (i.e. it is filling and with
it one feels no need for food). It is satisfying to the children.”
(As-Silsilah As-Saheehah 2658)
In another sound Hadeeth, it is reported that the Prophet
(blessings and peace be upon him) would say, “Zamzam water
is for what one intends to drink it for.” [Ibn Maajah 3062]

 The scholars and the righteous people have tested this. They
drank it for the purpose of having their needs met and
attaining things such as healing for an indisposed person and
removal of power and sorrow, and Allah actualized their
desires for them.
