Abu Dharr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) and the miracle of Zamzam


Can you mention the reference for this please?

Sayyiduna Abu Dharr (radiyallahu anhu) said to ‘Abdullah ibn As Samit (rahimahullah), “O my nephew! I stayed for thirty (30) days and nights without anything to consume but the water of Zamzam. Through the blessings of drinking Zamzam I put on so much of weight that my belly developed creases and I never felt the pangs and weakness of hunger.”



Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration. This is part of a lengthy narration wherein Sayyiduna Abu Dharr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) explains his journey to accepting Islam.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2473)



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
