Water: It Also Flows in Paradise

Allah created the heavens from its vapors” (Surat Al-‘Anbya’ 21:30); yet we often devalue its healing powers. The Prophet (SAW) advised us to “allow for one third food, one third water and one third air.

Science advices drinking at least 8-10 eight-ounce glasses of water a day. This including a glass ½-hour before and after every meal.

Water helps to flush out toxins and fats from our bodies. Moreover, it keeps our system functioning evenly so that we are energetic.

The human body is two-thirds water. In fact, this fluid is involved in every bodily process including digestion, absorption, circulation and excretion.

With water being such an important cornerstone to life, we need to consider the purity of our water sources.

Numerous studies on Zamzam water concluded that it’s one of the purest and cleanest waters we can enjoy.

However, can most of us say the same about our primary water source? Many people are drinking what really boils down to a chemical concoction when they fill their cups from the tap.

We can absorb toxins from water through drinking, cooking, bathing, showering, or swimming.

If our primary source of water is from the tap, we are absorbing toxins with it. All water from public works systems contains contaminants such as parasites, viruses, herbicides, pesticides, cyanides, asbestos, and industrial chemicals.

Even residues from pesticides used decades ago may still be present in the water system today. This polluted water is then treated with chlorine, fluoride, carbon, lime, phosphates, soda, ash, and aluminum sulfate to “purify” it, and sent through zinc and cadmium pipe joints and copper pipes to our homes.

It is ironic that we use additional chemicals to combat the chemicals and pollutants that are already in the water. It is like adding insult to injury.

To be precise, forty-seven “insults” in all are added to our water to disinfect, fluoridate, soften, coagulate, chlorinate, oxidate, condition, neutralize, and control the odor and color of it. Among these chemicals are chlorine and fluoride. Chlorine can either be absorbed or ingested, leeches potassium and sodium from the body causing electrolyte depletion.

The salts used to fluoridate our nation’s water supply, sodium fluoride and Hexafluorosilicic acid, are industrial by-products that are not found in nature. They are so toxic that they are used in rat poison. We can get all the natural fluorine we need from fish, bones, quince and raw goat’s milk.

The only way we can remove fluorine from our water is to use reverse osmosis – distillation or activated aluminum filtration. Many people drink distilled water because it doesn’t contain fluoride; however, it can also be detrimental to the health if used long- term because it too leeches minerals from the body.

Nevertheless, experts agree that water lacking some of its original nutrients is still superior to water laden with chemicals and toxins.
