Profit Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.W) spit in this well, and the water turned to weet. It is believed that this water is cure for diseases. In fact, this water is very sweet and light. There are some sellers there selling bottles and gallons also. It is 18 kilo meter away from Birr e Arrawha (also known as Birr e Shifa).

Located in between Badr and Madina. A traditional, rudimentary and undeveloped place of a great significance unbeknownst to people. Narrated that this water has cure for all diseases except for death for those who have faith and beleive in it. Was fortunate enough to see a baddu (tribal nomad) bring some herbs and dry wood from the forest up in the mountains. Herbs to be sold and the dry wood, he made fire to heat people around.

There was a time in history when Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was passing by the village with his people and halted to consume water from this well. The villagers stopped them from drinking the well’s water as it was poisonous. At that instance, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) spat into the well and announced that the well was no more toxic and its water was fit for consumption. Shifa of Aab-e-Shifa ‘Aab’ is synonymous with water, and ‘Shifa’ means to have healing properties or to be able to heal. Aab-e-Shifa is said to have amazing healing powers. People believe that Aab-e-Shifa can heal illnesses of all kinds. Those who fed the water to their sick animals observed the animals becoming healthier. People who had consumed the well water turned healthy and kept coming back to Beer-e-Shifa. They also reserved the water for future purposes. According to locals, the water is extremely pure and is free from any pollutants, even today. The water is said to be rich in calcium, keeping those who drink it active and zealous. The healing powers of the well can heal any pain and health flaws.

Part of spiritual enlightenment. Is some good drive outside Madina. A sort of remote place, come early in the day or at least during day time.
