The Crack In The Kaaba

The Crack In The Kaaba

There is a crack in the Ka’aba that opens every year which is in the area called the Rukn Al Yamani, a corner of the kaaba. The evidence of the crack is even more clear from the inside The crack opens every year even though efforts have been made to concealing it.
The crack still opens even after the Ka’aba was demolished by Bani Ummaya .
There is a scent that comes out of the crack that does not exist in any other part of the Ka’aba.

On Friday, the 13th of the Blessed Month of Rajab, 12 years before The Ordainment of The Prophet Muhammadﷺ as Allah’s Messenger, Fatima bint Asad (SA), who was nine months into Her Pregnancy, felt that She was about to give Birth to Her Child.

She came to the Sacred Ka’bah and began to circumambulate praying as She walked, “O Allah! I believe in You and in The Messengers and the Scriptures You have sent. I believe in what has been said by My Grandfather, Ibraham (A.S) Who built The Ancient House (the Ka’bah). So, for the Sake of The Builder of This House, and for The Sake of The Child in My Womb, Who Talks to Me and Who is My Helper and Friend, I implore You to make My Labor easy. The child I am carrying is a sign of Your Greatness and Power (Jalal).”

Al-Arbili, Kashf Al-Ghummah, vol. 1, chapter on Hazrat Ali (A.S).)

Fatima bint Asad (SA) leaned against the wall of the Ka’bah to rest. Miraculously, the wall opened. Fatima bint Asad (SA) entered and the wall closed behind Her. ‘Abbas bin ‘Abd al-Muttalib, the Prophet Muhammad’s ﷺ Uncle witnessed This Miracle.
He and His Companions rushed to the Gate of the Sacred House, which was locked, and tried in vain to open it. Understanding that the Divine was at work there, He and His Companions ceased to interfere. The news of this incident soon spread throughout Mecca.

Hazrat Ali (A.S) was born within the Ka’bah with His eyes closed and His body in Humble Prostration before the Almighty Allah.
Fatima (SA) stayed in the Ka’bah for three days and as the fourth day approached, She stepped out, carrying Her Baby in Her Arms. She found the Holy Prophet Muhammadﷺ waiting to receive The Newly-Born Child in His Anxious Arms. So the First Face That Little Ali (A.S) saw in this world was the Smiling Face of the Apostle of God, Muhammadﷺ.
Hazrat Ali’s (A.S.) Birth inside the Honored Ka’bah is unique in the history of the world.

It is an undisputed historical fact recognized by all historians that the Holy Ka’bah is the birthplace of Ali bin Abi Talib (A.S).

Glad Tidings were brought to Abu Talib and His Household. Upon Their arrival at the Sacred House they saw The Prophet Muhammadﷺ there with The Child in His Arms.

(Ibn al-Sabbagh al-Maliki, al-Fusul al-Muhimmah fi Ma’rifat al-A’immah, Ch. 1, p. 13.) ‎
Heﷺ carried The Baby Ali to the house of Abu Talib, where He, Himself was brought up.

Sayyidinā ʻAlī Karrama Allāhu Waj·hahu Al-karīm Kā Ẕikre Jamīl

سیدنا علی کرم اﷲ وجھہ الکریم کا ذکرِ جمیل

٦۔ عَنْ جَابِرٍ رَضِيَ اﷲ عَنْهُ أَنَّ عَلِيًّا رَضِيَ اﷲ عَنْهُ حَمَلَ الْبَابَ يَوْمَ خَيْبَرَ حَتّٰی صَعِدَ الْمُسْلِمُوْنَ فَفَتَحُوْهَا. وَأَنَّهُ جُرِّبَ فَلَمْ يَحْمِلْهُ إِلاَّ أَرْبَعُوْنَ رَجُلاً. رَوَاهُ ابْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ وَالْخَطِيْبُ وَالْبَيْهَقِيُّ وَابْنُ عَسَاکِرَ. وَقَالَ الْعَسْقَ.لَانِيُّ: قُلْتُ: لَهُ شَاهِدٌ مِنْ حَدِيْثِ أَبِي رَافِعٍ رَوَاهُ أَحْمَدُ فِي مُسْنَدِه لٰکِنْ لَمْ يَقُلْ أَرْبَعُوْنَ رَجُلًا. وَقَالَ الْهِنْدِيُّ: حَسَنٌ.

’’حضرت جابر رضی اللہ عنہ بیان کرتے ہیں کہ غزوہ خیبر کے روز حضرت علی رضی اللہ عنہ نے قلعہ خیبر کا دروازہ (اُکھاڑ کر) اٹھا لیا یہاں تک کہ مسلمان قلعہ پر چڑھ گئے اور اسے فتح کر لیا اور یہ تجربہ شدہ بات ہے کہ اس دروازے کو چالیس آدمی مل کر اُٹھاتے تھے۔‘‘

اس حدیث کو امام ابن ابی شیبہ، خطیب بغدادی، بیہقی اور ابن عساکر نے روایت کیا ہے۔ امام عسقلانی نے فرمایا: میں کہتا ہوں کہ اس حدیث کی مثال حضرت ابو رافع رضی اللہ عنہ سے بھی مروی ہے جسے امام احمد نے اپنی مسند میں روایت کیا ہے لیکن اس میں چالیس آدمیوں کا ذکر نہیں کیا۔ امام متقی ہندی نے اسے حسن کہا ہے۔
