parts of kaaba

Part of the kaaba

No. 1: Al Hajaru Al Aswad is a stone that comes from heaven. According to a history of the Angel Gabriel, who brought him from heaven and handed to the Prophet Abraham, and he put it on the east corner of the Kabah with a height of 1.10 m from the floor Tawaf and surrounded by a pure silver frame to guard it. In a hadith it is said that a prophet shallow alaihi WA sallam has kissed it and also the previous prophets, it is recommended for those who perform Tawaf to kiss or touch it with your hands or with something. If it can not, waving at him while saying takbir.

No. 2: Door Kaaba

N0 3:  Gutter. Gutter is located in the northern part of the attic Kaaba, in front of Hijr Ismail. Usefulness of guttering is to discharge water in the attic Kaaba when it rains.

No. 4: Syadzarwan.

Syadzarwan is slanted rocks on the wall under Kaaba from three sides. A history of saying that Abdullah bin Zubair built with the aim to prevent water seepage into the Kaaba and prevents people who perform Tawaf weight attached to kiswah Kaaba being damaged

No. 5 Hijr Ismail: Hijr Ismail shape half circle with a height of 1.3 m and a width of 1.5 m and a length of 8.5 m kaaba wall. Called Hijr Ismail because in this place, prophet Abraham left prophet Ismail with Siti Hajar when executing the command of Allah.

At 606 m when the tribe of Quraish restores the Kaaba, they lack the funds to be able to establish the size of the original Kaaba. They reduce the length of the wall to the north, so Hijr increasingly widespread.

Among His glory is prayer in it equally with prayer in the Ka’aba.

Prayers in Hijr is a stand-alone Sunna. In a sense there is no connection with the Tawaf or Umrah or Hajj. So, if you want to pray in Hijr Ismail did when free time while on haram Mosque complex.

No. 6: Multazam. Multazam is a place recommended for attaching the chest, hands and cheeks in place. It is located between the door and the Hajr Aswad Kabah width of approximately 2 meters.
