7 Unknown Facts About Hajr Al Aswad Every Muslim Must Know.

The Hajr-e-Aswad also known as The Black Stone is set in the eastern corner of the Holy Kaaba. The Tawaf is started and ended by facing this sacred black stone. Over the years, throughout history, numerous people which included the Prophets of Allah (Peace be upon them) and the Holy Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him), the Sahaba (may Allah be pleased with them) and other pious Muslim personalities have performed Hajj and Umrah around the Holy Kaaba and have also placed their blessed lips on the Holy Stone. Today we are going to present some lesser-known facts about Hajr-e-Aswad.[irp]

1-The Hajr-e-Aswad also known as The Black Stone was brought down from heaven (Jannah) and was presented to Ibrahim (peace be upon him) so that he could place it in the corner of the Kaaba. Sunan an-Nasa'i 2935
2-The Hajr-e-Aswad was reportedly stolen from the Holy Kaaba during 930 CE by the Qarmatian warriors. These warriors sacked Makkah while desecrating the Well of ZamZam with corpses of Muslims and carried The Black Stone back to their base in Ihsaa, in the medieval region of Bahrain. The Black Stone was returned around 952 CE according to Historian Al Juwayni and restored to its original location.

3-The Hajr-e-Aswad was initially a complete single stone however due to various incidents which occurred throughout history, the Stone is now in eight pieces of different sizes which have been affixed to a large stone which is also encased in a silver frame. The original silver frame was built by Abdullah bin Zubair (may Allah be pleased with him) and was later replaced by the latter Khalifas as and when the need arose.

4-Six other pieces of the Hajr-e-Aswad are claimed to be in Istanbul, Turkey. One is displayed in the Mihrab of the Blue Mosque, one is located at the entrance of the tomb of Sulaiman and 4 are in the SokulluSehit Mehmet PasaCamii mosque.

5- The Messenger of Allah said: “The Black Stone descended from the Paradise, and it was Whiter than milk, then it was blackened by the sins of the children of Adam.” – Jami` at-Tirmidhi 877

6-The Messenger of Allah said about the (Black) Stone: “By Allah! Allah will raise it on the Day of Resurrection with two eyes by which it sees and a tongue that it speaks with, testifying to whoever touched it in truth.” – Jami` at-Tirmidhi 961
7-Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) stated while leaning against the Kaaba that the Hajr-e-Aswad and Maqam-e-Ibrahim are two of the jewels out of the jewels of Paradise. If Allah had not concealed the radiance of these jewels, they would illuminate everything that lay between the East and West. (Tirmidhi)

In Sahih Al Jamie’, following the above Hadith is stated: ..’And reduce going out when it is quiet( when everybody is indoors at night time) as Allah diffuses by night what He wishes among His Creation, and lock your doors and mention the Name of Allah on them as
