The golden spout is generally known as the ‘Meezab-e-Rahmat’ which means “The water outlet of mercy”. Some people call it the gutter of the Holy Kaaba which I believe is not an appropriate name to be associated with the sacred building.

Is there any Islamic importance of Meezab Rehma?

It is reported that the Prophet Muhammad S.A.W supplicated under that Meezab-e-Rehmat. Water streams down from the top of the Holy Kaaba and people think about this water to be magical and full of Shifa. However, there is no such confirmation that states the religious or scientific importance of this water.
