In the Name
of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
We assigned to Ibrahim
the site of the House, saying, Do not associate with Me anything and PURIFY My House for those who
circumambulate (the Kabah for Tawaaf) and those who stand
upright, and those who bow and prostrate themselves (Salaah/Prayers), (26). Call mankind to the Pilgrimage.
They will come to you, on foot, and on every kind of lean camel, by
every distant track, (27). So that they may witness its benefit for
them and, on the appointed days may utter the name of God over the
cattle He has provided for them. Then eat their flesh, and feed the
distressed and the needy, (28). Then let the pilgrims purify themselves
and fulfil their vows and perform the circumambulation of the Ancient
House, (29). Such is Gods commandment. Whoever honors that which is
declared sacred by God may be sure that it counts for good in the sight
of his Lord. Livestock is lawful for you, except that which has already
been explicitly forbidden. Then shun the abomination of the deities and
shun all falsehood, (30). (Ref: Al_Quraan_022:026-030).
House (Worshipping Place, Kabaa) to be built for mankind
was the one at Makkah (Bakkah in the Bible). It is a Blessed
Place; a Source of Guidance for the Whole World. There are
Signs in it; it is the place where Ibrahim
stood (for Salaat/Prayers that
is only TRUE
Anyone who enters it will be secure. Pilgrimage to the House is a duty
to God for anyone who is able to undertake it. Anyone who disbelieves
should remember that God is independent of all creatures. (Ref:
In the above verses,
Allah has very clearly mentioned about TRUE Muqam-E-Ibrahim that
it was the place were Prophet Ibrahim (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) were used to
stand for Salaah/Prayer,
since it was one of the main objective to build Kabaa, i.e. perform
Hajj, offer Salaah and take Muqaam-E-Ibrahim where Imaam Kabaa stands
for Salaah/Prayers all around the world. Our Method of Salaah/Prayers
must be according to Imaam Kabaa, i.e. raise hand and tie on the chest
similar to Imaam Kabaa, basic concept whenever we stand during
Salaah/Prayer even for few seconds etc. We first at the start of
Salaah/Prayer we stand, second after coming from Ruku and third time
after coming from Sujood. Since the time of build of Kabaa and till the
Day of Judgment, the Kabaa House of Allah and TRUE Muqam-E-Ibrahim
(where Imam Kabaa stands to lead congregational Salaah/Prayers) cannot
be moved, period. Remember:
Reconstruction of Haram which includes Kabaa is always permitted for
worshipping to Allah alone.
majority of Muslims are confused with souvenir of the
footsteps of Prophet Ibrahim (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), it is just one RESPECTED
set of piece of footsteps which was taken out and preserved as a
souvenir/show-piece, which can be put anywhere inside Greater Haram
near Kabaa. Most important thing for us should be saving a life is like
save the whole world, from which many of us are deviating from.
Currently Tsunami of bad Global Economy is hurting many people around
the Globe and our focus should be saving a life where ever we can,
fixing Global Economy for all regardless of without any discrimination
of Religion, Race, Sect, Gender, Color, Nationality, Rich, Poor, Young
or Old, etc.
you may have to face many
challenges, and that could be a test of patience for you,
so be patience at all times, (Ref. Al_Quraan_005:002,
094). Remember: Hajj is NOT a Five Star PICNIC.

you will get reward of what you have done, and surely DEEDS of your
loved ones or others will NOT save you, (Selected References:
