Chapter: The holy kaba

The holy kaba | 08. Boundaries of haram

Boundaries of haram
The holy Makkah and the surrounding areas where hunting is prohibited have been called holy haram. when hadrat Ibrahim alaihis salaam fixed the Hajr e Aswad (the black stone) in a corner of the kaba, it was very shiny and bright. The distances the light of this stone covered were declared areas of holy haram. within these limits, except of the directions of Jeddah and Ji’irrrana, towers were established because there are no towers this side. These identifications of haram were first established  by hadrat Ibrahim alaihis salaam next by hadrat Ismail alaihis salaam then next by Adnan Ibn Ousai next to him by the Quraish then during year of the conquer of Makkah by the holy prophet sallallaahu alaihi wasallam, then by hadrat Umer then by hadrat Uthman, then hadrat Ameer Muaviyah radhiallahu. And up till now the identification established by hadrat Muaviyah have been intact. These boundaries are not of equal distance. The nearest boundary limit is called Tan’eem from where the Ihram for umrah is being worn. The mosque of Ayesha is also situated here. (Mir ‘aatulManajeeh, Volume 4, Page 225)
