Adding water to Zam-Zam to increase it
Fatwa No: 87250


When people return from Hajj/Umrah they mix zam-zam water with normal water and give it to their guests. Is this allowed to increase the water?


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.

There is no objection to mix Zam-Zam water with other water and present the mixed water to guests.  But the Baraka (blessing) of pure Zam-Zam might be greater than the Baraka of Zam-Zam mixed with other water.

So, it is better to drink Zam-Zam pure even in very small quantities since what is sought is Baraka.

Allah knows best.
