Photos of Maqam e Ibrahim captured using latest imaging technics
After Hajr e Aswad, photos of Maqam e Ibrahim have been captured using latest imaging technics.
The organization responsible to look after matters of Masjid e Nabavi and Masjid ul Haram, Riasa Shaun Al-Harmain released pictures of the Maqam e Ibrahim on its Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Maqam e Ibrahim is a small square stone which has the imprint of Ibrahim’s feet.
According to one tradition the foot prints appeared when Ibrahim (AS) stood on the stone for building the Ka’aba and when the walls became high for his reach, Ibrahim stood on the stone, which miraculously rose up and down in the air to continue building and also taking stones from Ismail on the ground.
The maqam is located 10-11 meters east of the Kaaba Gate, in the part leading to Safa and Marwah. It is square in shape, with the footprints of the Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him), which are two oval pits in the middle.
The place, where this stone is situated, is where Prophet Ibrahim (AS) offered two rakat salah after completing the building.
