Q: I require the following clarification. 1. What is the shelf life of Zam Zam Water from the time it is collected from the Zam Zam Well. We understand that Zam Zam water can be stored for long periods of time without getting spoiled. 2. We have still some stock of it given to us in July 2011, carefully stored in the refrigerator. Can we drink it now?
1. Generally if Zam Zam is kept in a clean and pure vessel, it can remain for unlimited time.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
