The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

There is no Hadith or Ayahs in regards with doing lecal pump (nacasath cleaning) cleaning with zam-zam water. Also there is no drawback for having ablution or full ablution (wudu / qusl) with zam-zam water. Cleaning private parts as may be cleaned with water, also may be cleaned with small stones when there is no water. However, it is makruh (disliked, disagreeable; not forbidden by God but looked upon with horror and disgust by Muslim teachers.) to clean the private parts with zam-zam or with bone, glass, paper, expensive fabrics such as silk but it is not haram (forbidden). Additionally, in difficulties, cleaning private parts with zam-zam is not makruh.

When there is no water, one may clean private parts with worthless fabric, cotton, papers like toilet paper as well. As a matter of fact, it is better to dry private parts with something like a hydrophilic cloth.
