It may not only sound mesmerising but its SubhanAllah one of the miracles that Allah has shown to its people. Zam is the well that came into being for Ismail (A.S) who was the son of Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S) and Bibi Hajraa (May Allah bless her). It is said that Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S) was travelling with his family once in a desert, Hazrat  Ismail(A.S) started crying as he was thirsty. Bibi Hajraa (May Allah bless her) asked Hazrat Ibrahim(A.S), soon he left for the search of water. She waited for him to return, but as Hazrat Ismail(A.S) ‘s suffering was something she couldn't bear. She ran towards the Mount-al Safaa and climbed it and pray to Allah to help her son, then again she ran towards the Mount al-Marwah and again prayed to Allah (s.w.t) for her son. Soon the prayers were answered and Hazrat  Jibrael (A.S) was sent on earth. He struck the earth once and a fountain of Zam zam came into being.
