Health is one of the most essential things that everyone should have. One thing that needs to be considered in maintaining health is food and drink. Islam is a complex religion because eating and drinking have been regulated in Islam, as stated in the Al-Quran and Hadith. One of them is about zam-zam water. Some of the author's goals are to find out the existence of zam-zam water in the Qur'an and hadith, know the content of zam-zam water, and the method of treatment with zam-zam water.
