Dua before Drinking Zam Zam Water

Allah’s Messenger SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam drank water of zamzam standing. However no instruction has been given for drinking zamzam water standing. Hadh’rat Abdullah bin Abbas RadhiAllahu Anhu used to preach people to drink water of zamzam facing the Holy Ka’abah after saying Bismillah, in three sips. No specific supplication has been reported from Allah’s Messenger SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam for drinking of zamzam water. However Hadhrat Abbdullah bin Abbas RadhiAllahu anhu used to recite this supplication:

« اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ عِلْمًا نَافِعًا، وَرِزْقًا وَاسِعًا، وَشِفَاءً مِنْ كُلِّ دَاءٍ»

Allahumma innee as’aluka ilman nafe’an wa rizqan wase’an wa shifa’am min kulli da’a.

Translation: O Allah I ask You to bestow me with beneficial knowledge, extensive provision and cure from all illness. (Musannaf Abdul Razzaq).
