أبي رحمه الله قال حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى عن الحسن بن علي بن فضال عن عقبة عمن رواه عن أبي عبد الله (ع) قال كانت زمزم أبيض من اللبن وأحلى من الشهد وكانت سايحة فبغت على المياه، فأغارها الله عزوجل، وأجرى إليها عينا من صبر.

1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Al Hassan Bin Ali Bin Fazaal, from Uqba, from the one who reported it, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has said: ‘The Zamzam used to be whiter than the milk, and sweeter than the honey, and it was flowing over the ground. So it overcame the (other) waters surprisingly. So Allah Mighty and Majestic Sunk it and Caused a bitter spring of to flow over it’.
