Etiquettes of Drinking Zamzam
Zamzam water is self-replenishing and has produced gallons upon gallons of water since its origin. Pilgrims keep bringing it back to their loved ones and families as a gift. There are certain etiquettes of drinking Zamzam which we find from the life of our dearest Prophet Muhammad PBUH.
Drink while standing up
According to scholars, it is recommended to drink Zamzam while standing. Maliki and Hanbali scholars agree with this notion due to the following Hadith.
Abdullah ibn Abbas reported a hadith of Prophet Muhammad PBUH, “I served Zamzam water to the Messenger of Allah PBUH, He PBUH drank the sacred water whilst standing.” –Sahih Bukhari: 1528
Some other jurists such as Shafi’i believe it is Sunnah to drink Zam-zam water while sitting. This is because of the general prohibition of drinking water in a standing position.
Another adab of drinking Zam zam water is while facing Qiblah. It is recommended due to following Hadith:
Ibn Abbas reported hadith of Prophet Muhammad, “If you drink the Zamzam water, drink your fill whilst facing Khana Kaba, say tasmia and take three breath breaks while you finish, and praise Allah after finishing.” –Al Haakim
Drinking Zam zam or any water must be done in three sips.
A person who is drinking Zam zam must make niyah and intend for whatever is best for him in both worlds. He must hope for blessings and healing.
Supplicate while drinking
Prophet Muhammad PBUH taught a special dua to his Ummah for drinking Zamzam water.
After drinking Zamzam say Alhamdulillah.
