Meezab is a golden spout from which rainwater on the roof of the Kaaba falls on the hijr Ismail. It is reported that the Prophet (saw) prayed at the place.

It is commonly referred to as “Meezab-e-Rahmah” (Mercy Drain).


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)
