Signs Galore – 5

Qur’aanic Verse 22.28:



28. Liyashhadoo manafiAAa lahum wayathkuroo isma Allahi fee ayyamin maAAloomatin AAala ma razaqahum min baheemati al-anAAami fakuloo minha waatAAimoo alba-isa alfaqeera


28. That they may witness benefits for them11 and take Allah’s name, during days appointed (for Hajj), over what He has provided for them of the quadruped cattle. Then they eat thereof and feed the distressed, the needy. 

Study Notes:


11. The benefits witnessed could be different to different pilgrims. The benefit I personally had as a pilgrim (in January, 2005 AD) was the awe-inspiring experience of participating in an international meet of millions of common people. The other awesome experience I had was of the amazing and truly miraculous zam-zam water. In an arid land of scanty rainfall, this wonderful spring of healthy, potable water does not only quench the thirst of millions and millions of people visiting Kaabah round the year, but it is also supplied by pipeline to Masjid-e-Nabvi at Medina, hundreds of miles away. Besides, cans and cans of this divine water are taken to distant parts of the world as tabarruk from the land of the Hajj by the visiting pilgrims. And yet the spring remains inexhaustible!! Zam-zam is indeed an ayah (sign) that has strengthened my faith in Islam!


The above is an extract from Qur’aanic Studies Manzil IV, which will soon, inshaAllah, be published on Amazon Kindle. Manzil IMabzil II & Manzil III of the series are already published.

Mohammad Shafi



  1. The Best

  2. for your information water is not supplied to Madina by pipeline., it is transferred there by water tankers.

    “Zamzam water is supplied daily by tankers to Masjid Nabavi at Madinah Al-Munawarrah. Before, filling the thermoses and supplying to public outlet Zamzam water is again treated by UV process. ZSRC regularly inspects this treatment and distribution system and advises the managers on improvements and streamlining the system”
