Is Zamzam water holy?

The Well of Zamzam (زمزم) is a well located within the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, 20 meters (66 feet) east of the Ka’aba, the holiest place in Islam. The well is 35 meters deep and topped by an elegant dome.

Millions of Muslims visit the well each year while performing the Hajj or Umrah pilgrimages, in order to drink its water and, in many cases, to take home some of its water for distribution among friends and relations believing the well and the water which it pumps to be miraculous.

In October 2005, the British Food Standards Agency issued warnings against “fraudulent” Zamzam water being commercially sold which contained dangerous levels of arsenic (over three times the legal limit recommended by the World Health Organization).

In May 2011, a BBC investigation found that genuine Zamzam water taken DIRECTLY from the well contained arsenic levels three times the legal limit, something which could contribute to increasing people’s risk of cancer. Arsenic poisoning is caused by increased levels of the element arsenic in the body. Symptoms of arsenic poisoning include headaches, confusion, sleepiness, convulsions, vomiting, diarrhea, kidney, liver and lung problems, and can even result in coma or death. In addition to the dangerous arsenic levels, the holy water contained high levels of nitrate and potentially harmful bacteria.

Saudi Arabian authorities insisted a sample **they** sent to French labs show normal level of arsenic! Yeah right. Like who are they fooling.

Due to popular demands, I have decided to set up an online blog with all the memes you will need to source. The memes are intended to be fun, touches of humour, and informative. Every year many people like you and me, leave Islam. The US reports that 23% of American born Muslims have left Islam, 18% of British Muslims have left Islam, BBC reported in 2019 that 18% of Arabs see themselves are irreligious with the rate as high as 30% among the youth. This page is intended mainly to translate the many atheist Arabic memes that are shared in the Arabic social media such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Islamophobic content will not be tolerated! Content that challenges the teachings of the Quran, Hadith, Serat (story) of Mohammad, and Islamic teachings are all welcomed.
