Going for Umrah or Hajj? Well then, enjoy the sight of the Kabah while you can.
“While you can”, you ask?
This short article will help you understand what I mean:
“Enjoy this House”
With Hajj season coming up, I thought it appropriate to present these narrations regarding the Ka’bah from Hamud at-Tuwayjri’s ‘Ithaf al-Jama’ah’ (3/214):
Ibn ‘Umar narrated that the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said: “Enjoy and take advantage of this House, as it has been destroyed twice and will be raised up on the third.”
[Reported by Ibn Hibban in his ‘Sahih’ and the ‘Mustadrak’ of al-Hakim, and adh-Dhahabi agreed on its authentication in his ‘Talkhis’]
Ma’mar said: “It has reached me from some that the Ka’bah will be destroyed three times, and will be raised up on the third or fourth time. So, enjoy and take advantage of it.”
[Reported in the ‘Musannaf’ of ‘Abd ar-Razzaq]
Ka’b said regarding the Ka’bah: “You will destroy it three times, O people. It will then be raised up on the fourth time. So, enjoy and take advantage of it.”
[Reported in the ‘Musannaf’ of ‘Abd ar-Razzaq with a chain that is authentic according to the conditions of al-Bukhari and Muslim]
