around 10.6 feet below the surface. It is the miracle of Allah that when Zam Zam was pumped continuously for more than 24 hours with a pumping rate of 8,000 liters per second, water level dropped to almost 44 feet below the surface,
THE PUMPING WAS STOPPED,
the level immediately
elevated again to 13 feet
after 11 minutes.
8,000 liters per second
8,000 x 60 = 480,000 liters
480,000 liters per minutes
that 480,000 x 60 = 28.8 Million liters per hour
And 28.8 Million liters per hour
means that 28,800,000 x 24 = 691.2 Million liters per day So they pumped 690 Millions liters of ZamZam in 24 hours, but it was re-supplied in 11 minutes only.
There are 2 miracles here, the
first that ZamZam was re-filled immediately, & the
second is that Allah Holds the extra-ordinarily powerful
Aquifer for not throwing extra ZamZam out of the
well, otherwise the world will SINK.
It is the translation of the word ZamZam, which
means Stop !!!!!!!!!!!! Stop !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! said by Hajirah Alaih As Salaam.
Zimam is an Arabic word, it is the rope / REIN attached to
bridle or noseband & it is used / pulled to stop the running animal.
Zamzam water has no colour or smell, but it has a distinct taste.
