Purifying oneself with Zamzam water

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
what is the ruling on purifying oneself with Zamzam water?

Praise be to Allaah.

It is not makrooh to purify oneself with Zamzam water according to our opinion. This is the opinion of all the scholars, apart from Ahmad according to one report narrated from him. Our evidence (the evidence for this) is that no saheeh report has been narrated to indicate that it is prohibited, and it was reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Water is purifying and nothing makes it impure."
As for the reports that al-'Abbaas said it was forbidden to do ghusl with the water of Zamzam, this is not a saheeh report.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
