MAKKAH: Technologically advanced and highly hygienic dispensers and filling machines will be used to distribute Zamzam water to worshippers at the Grand Mosque in Makkah and the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah during Ramadan, an official said on Monday.
According to the Umm Al-Qura calendar the month of fasting is to begin on Aug. 1.
“New Zamzam water dispensers with the highest standard of hygiene will be placed at various locations in the two holy mosques. The drums are easily movable for refilling,” Director of Studies and Projects at the Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques Abdul Mohsen bin Humaid told Arab News.
The drums could not be opened except by its operators, Humaid said.
As part of the presidency’s efforts to guarantee the highest level of hygiene when handling Zamzam water, the authorities will also install smart filling machines shortly, he said. The machines will identify the capacity of containers and fill them without wasting a drop, the official said.
