東京ジャーミイの水 ザムザム
ザムザムーイスラーム文化情報発信冊子ー創刊号にて東京ジャーミイが特集されました。ここでは冊子名でもあるザムザムのことを紹介されています。皆さんはご存知でしたか?                        ザムザムの泉(アラビア語:زمزم Zamzam)とは、サウジアラビアにある聖地マッカ(メッカ)のマスジド・ハラームにある泉である。 古くからマッカの貴重な水源であり、イスラム社会においては聖なる泉とされている。ザムザムの泉から湧き出る水はザムザムの水と呼ばれ、イスラム教における聖水のようなものとして扱われている。巡礼に来たムスリムはウムラ(英語版) の儀式が終わるとザムザムの水を飲むのが通例とされている。この水は販売目的での国外への持ち出しはサウジアラビアの法律によって禁止されているが、巡礼者が個人的に持ち帰る分には自由であり、巡礼者の代表的な土産物になっている。マッカの周囲にはザムザムの水を売る店が多数ある。一部の航空会社ではザムザムの水の機内持込に関して荷物の重量制限から一部除外するなど特別な規定を設けているところがある。

 

HOW DID THE ZAMZAM WELL SPRING?

When Bibi Hajra a.s made use of the small amount of food that Ibrahim a.s left for her and her baby, but ran out eventually and was soon thirsty and hungry-her milk dried up, her baby Ismail a.s became hungry and began to cry. Hajra a.s couldn’t afford seeing her son in pain so climbed up the hill which was later called As-Safa, to see if there was anyone in the horizon. She saw no one. She then climbed down, and reaching the valley, ran to the other hill, later called Al –Marwa, doing the same again, all this time her son twisting and turning in hunger. She repeated this seven times, and on the 7th time reached the top of the hill and heard a sound. To her amazement she found it coming from beneath the feet of Ismail a.s. At that point Jibra’eel a.s began digging the well of Zam-zam from beneath his feet. Hajra a.s was excited to contain the water, it being a desert and so arid and dry-the water would seep into the ground, and she tried making a pool to contain it.

From 4000 years, the well is supplying water continuously which itself is a miracle.
