A Sri Lankan housemaid in Saudi Arabia converted to Islam after she was cured of epilepsy by drinking Zamzam water for nearly two weeks.
Newspapers in the Gulf Kingdom said the maid’s employer brought her Zamzam water from the western Saudi town of Makkah and asked her to drink as much as she can.
“The maid kept drinking Zamzam for nearly two weeks. Afterwards, she was told by doctors that she had been cured of epilepsy, which she had suffered for more than 15 years,” the Saudi Arabic language daily Sharq said.
In a report from the northwestern town of Hail, the paper said maid decided to convert to Islam and changed her name from Raju to Farida.
