Makkah is the center of the universe and its time should be the internationally accredited time instead of Greenwich which was imposed on the world by Britain. The direction of tawaf has to do with the movement of stars. The footprint of Prophet Ibrahim near the Holy Kaaba when he and his son Ismail were rebuilding it as commanded by God stands as a lasting miracle. Zamzam water has been gushing from the same well for thousands of years without a change of taste or color."
These claims are pretty amazing. Let's highlight ZamZam water and what one hour of fundamental research can reveal. The biradical root for ZamZam in Semitic languages is zm, which its Sememe means time, season. In addition, it is used to express as time, season, and period. (1) Assuming that Petra is factual Mecca the Lexicon Syriacum offers an even more precious definition: to call, sing, celebrate, praise or extol. (2).
ZamZam most likely refers to a locality with water. The locality is named 'Sing and Praise', or 'Sing and celebrate', the Nabatean version of The Voice, a religious event with songs and dance to praise god in an almost Dionysian way. In this scenario you would expect to find a wine press on the holy mountain of their supreme god Dushara (or Allah in Nabatean graffiti). O yes wait, it has one!
Anyway, I could imagine botanical gardens with species, palm trees and a huge swimming pool, much bigger than its Olympic counterpart, filled with fresh rain water from the mountains. This place would be next to a great temple - big enough for counterclockwise circulation with a lot of pilgrims (tawaf) - that would host the holy meteorite during festival seasons.
I could imagine that afterwards they would like to relax in botanical gardens, drink wine, sing and dance to praise god. And most of all cooling down in a spring of bath with health-giving properties so they are well prepared for their next glass of delicious red wine.
I thought this was only a pleasant dream - but then astrophysics matched the earliest Muslim descriptions of the Kaaba with the splendid solstitial definitions of Petra's monuments and their way facing the equinoxes.(3)
So all in all ZamZam is a Spa - the Nabateans and their offspring surely knew how to earn a buck from pilgrimage! After all you should not take everything that seriously: sometimes it's time to contemplate but then it's time to sing and celebrate. Hey, using a biradical root that would become ZamZamZam
