Taking Zamzam water outside Makkah

Q: I received my education in the United States of America where I became acquainted with several Muslims in Los Angeles, Americans and non-Americans. A group of them asked me to send them some water from Zamzam (a well near the Ka`bah). I sent them the water and received actual freight charges with an extra small amount in return for efforts and time exerted. I hope Your Honor will give me a Fatwa in this regard, knowing that they still ask me to send them more Zamzam water, please advise. May Allah reward you!

A: There is nothing wrong with sending Zamzam water for people who request it outside the Kingdom so that they will benefit from it. Zamzam water is blessed and it is recommended to drink it as an act of worshipping Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He). There is no blame on you for taking the freight charges and money for the efforts you exerted.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
