Question

Is there is any problem that non muslim drink "zamzam" and eat "dates of haram" please tell me i was worried about that

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

We are not aware of any evidence from The Book of Allah and the Sunnah of the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) which prohibits a non-Muslim from drinking ZamZam water or eating the dates from Madeenah. Indeed, there were non-Muslims in Makkah and Madeenah but, as far as we know, it was not reported that he  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) prevented them from drinking ZamZam water or eating the dates from Madeenah. Nonetheless, it is forbidden for a non-Muslim to enter Makkah.

Allah Knows best.
