MAQAAM-E-IBRAHEEM

It is a holy stone that is present a few yards away from the Holy Ka’bah. It is the same stone that Sayyiduna lbraheem  would step upon to complete the construction of the walls of the Holy Ka’bah when the walls became higher than his head. It is a miracle of Sayyiduna lbraheem that the stone became as soft as wax and the blessed foot-prints of Sayyiduna lbraheem got engraved in it. By virtue of printed blessed feet of Sayyiduna lbraheem ‘ Allah  dignified and blessed this stone to such an extent that He  has mentioned its significance twice in the Holy Quran. In one of the Quranic Ayah, it is mentioned:

     فِیْہِ اٰیٰتٌ بَیِّنٰتٌ مَّقَامُ اِبْرٰھِیْمَ 
(Part 4, Surah Aal-e-‘Imran, Ayah 97) 
Meaning, in the Holy Ka’bah there are many open heavenly signs and one of the major sign is ‘Maqaam-e-Ibraheem’. On another place in the Holy Quran Allah  has described the dignity of this stone as under: 
وَ اتَّخِذُوۡا مِنۡ مَّقَامِ اِبْرٰہٖمَ مُصَلًّی ؕ

And make ‘Maqaam-e-Ibraheem’ (place of standing of Ibraheem) a station for Salah.
[Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)] (Part 1, Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 125)
The blessed footprints of Sayyiduna lbraheem are present on this heavenly stone since last four thousand years. This stone is present uncovered under the open sky. Four thousand rainy seasons have showered over this stone, thousand of winds and storms have passed over this stone. Heavy rains and floods took place in the sacred vicinity of the Ka’bah. Millions of people swept their hands on it, but despite all this, the marks of the blessed footprints of Sayyiduna lbraheem  are still apparent upon it which is undoubtedly a wonderful and magnificent miracle of Sayyiduna lbraheem –
This stone is undoubtedly a heavenly sign amongst the several other open signs of Allah  Allah  has commanded all the Muslims that after Tawaf of His sacred home (the Holy Ka’bah), offer two Rak’aat of Salah near this very stone. Although you people may offer Salah for Me and prostrate for Me but it is My pleasure that at the time of prostration, your foreheads touch the ground near this sacred stone that holds the blessed footprints of my beloved Sayyiduna Ibraheem ·

Moral: 

Dear Islamic brothers! From the dignity and reverence awarded to Maqaam-e-Ibraheem, we get the lesson that any place which preserves any monument of the chosen people of Allah is very sacred and honourable in the court of Allah . Furthermore, the worship performed near such sacred places is more virtuous in the court of Allah 
Now look into the fact that Maqaam-e-Ibraheem is so sacred and reverential due to its contextual attachment with the footprints of Sayyiduna Ibraheem  then how
reverential would be the holy grave of the Greatest and
the Holiest Rasool where there are not only signs and marks of the Rasool of Rahmah, the Intercessor of Ummah, the Owner of Jannah  but his whole blessed body is present there. By the virtue of his blessed presence, even each and every particle of Madinah has become reverential.
O the Muslims! If only these Ayahs of the Holy Quran may invoke true reverence of the blessed grave in the hearts of the people! May they prevent from falling victim to the satanic temptations, going astray by disrespecting and practicing offensive conducts towards the blessed grave and may they not invite severe torment of Hell for themselves! If only the Najdis and W ahabis may learn open lesson contained in these Quranic Ayahs as they use to show a disrespectful attitude towards the blissful grave by falsely calling it a ‘heap of dust’ and plot their evil plans of demolishing the Grand Green Dome and tend to abolish the blessed grave!
