    The Miraculous Yemeni Corner of the Kaabah

    الركن اليماني الإعجازي للكعبة، أعزها الله
     
    Born in the Kaabah: A story in pictures and poetry

    More than 1,400 years ago, a pregnant Fatimah bint Assad, Peace be upon her, (فاطمة بنت أسد، عليها السلام), was performing tawaf (طواف) (walking counter-clockwise around the exalted Kaabah (الكعبة، أعزها الله) when she started laboring. As she approached the Kaabah's Yemeni Foundation (or Corner) (ar-Rukn al-Yamani - الركن اليماني), which faces the direction towards Yemen (hence the name), the ancient granite stone building ruptured and opened-up. Fatimah bint Assad, PBUH, then entered the Kaabah through the slit where she delivered her holy son, the Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb (الإمام علي بن أبي طالب، عليه السلام), PBUH, and they remained there for three days. During their stay inside the Kaabah, Fatimah and her son, Peace be upon them, were served foods from the Heavens.

    In the above photograph of al-Kaabah, ar-Rukn al-Yamani is visible to the right, next to the standing worshiper dressed in white. The area of the Kaabah which ruptured for Fatimah bint Assad, PBUH, remains evident, clearly visible and impossible to repair even today! Since the occurrence of that World-changing event, the Kaabah has been destructed, rebuilt, and renovated numerous times, yet the Yemeni Corner keeps disintegrating continuously and remains distinguished from the rest of the structure. The only way to seal the slit in the Yemeni Foundation of the Kaabah has been to use special concrete (instead of granite rocks) in combination with long stainless steel nails as well as molten metal for support (see photos below).

     
     
     
     
     
    أبيات شعر في ولادة أمير المؤمنين، علي بن أبي طالب، عليه السلام:
    في الكعبة واتّخذتها كالصدف     كالدرّ ولدت يا تمام الشّرف
    والكعبة وجهها تجاه النجف     فاستقبَلَتِ الوجوه شطر الكعبة

    A Poem About the Birth of Imam Ali, PBUH:
    O thee Complete Exaltedness, born like a pearl,
    In the Kaabah, which thee took for a shell!
    So the faces turn towards the Kaabah,
    And yet the Kaabah faces towards Najaf!
    Translated by Sam Bazzi

    Fatimah bint Assad, PBUH, is buried in al-Baqi (البقيع) in al-Madinah (Medina - المدينة المنورة) near her grandsons al-Hassan ibn Ali al-Mujtaba (الحسن المجتبى، عليه السلام), Ali ibn al-Hussain Zeyn-el-Aabideen (علي زين العابدين، عليه السلام), Muhammad ibn Ali al-Baqer (محمد الباقر، عليه السلام), and Jaʿfar ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (جعفر الصادق، عليه السلام), and close to the tomb of Prophet Muhammad (النبي محمد، صلى الله عليه وآله), PBUH&HF, who is buried in the Mosque of the Prophet (المسجد النبوي), and the Mistress of the Females of the Universes, Fatimah az-Zahra (فاطمة الزهراء، سيدة نساء العالمين، صلوات الله عليها), Peace be upon her, who is buried in a hidden grave located in either Baqi, or most likely, in ar-Rawdah an-Nabawiyah (الروضة النبوية) in the Mosque of the Prophet.

    Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb, PBUH, is buried in an-Najaf (النجف), Iraq (العراق).

    The ruptured area of the exalted Kaabah is to the left of the standing worshiper dressed in white. This area of the Kaabah is distinguished from the rest of the stone structure with its different colors and tone. While the Kaabah is constructed with local granite stones, the ruptured area of ar-Rukn al-Yamani is molded using special concrete as well as molten metal and long stainless steel nails. Novice pilgrims often mistake this area of the Kaabah for the corner carrying the Black Stone (الحجر الأسود) and raise their hands to salute it while passing by it.

    Special concrete and molten metal as well as stainless steel nails are used to prevent the lower part of the Yemeni Corner of the Kaabah from disintegrating. This corner of the Kaabah miraculously ruptured more than 1,400 years ago so that Fatimah bint Assad, PBUH, (فاطمة بنت أسد، عليها السلام), can deliver her son, Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb, PBUH, (الإمام علي بن أبي طالب، عليه السلام), inside the Kaabah Indeed, God exalted the Kaabah with the birth of Imam Ali, PBUH, within its walls; and He exalted Imam Ali, PBUH, with his delivery into this World inside the Kaabah.

    من الأبيات المنقوشة على ضريح أمير المؤمين، عليه السلام، لإبن أبي الحديد المعتزلي:
        
    فكأن زنجيا هناك يجدع  قد قلت للبرق الذي شق الدجى
    اتراك تعلم من بأرضك مودع  يا برق ان جئت الغري فقل له
    عيسى يُقفِّيهِ وأحمد يتبع  فيك ابن عمران الكليم وبعدهُ
    فيك والملأُ المقدَّس أجمع  بل فيك جبريلٌ وميكالٌ وإسرا
    لذوي البصائر يستشف ويلمع  بل فيك نور الله جل جلاله
    المجتبى فيك البطين الانزع  فيك الامام المرتضى فيك الوصي
    لنظيرها من قبل إلا يوشع  يا من ردت له ذكاءُ ولمْ يفز
    فيها لجثتك الشريفة مضجع  ما العالم العلويِّ إلا تربةٌ
    في العالمين وشافعٌ ومشفِّع  بل أنت في يوم القيامة حاكمٌ
    الدنيا ولا جمع البرية مجمع  والله لولا حيدرٌ ما كانتِ
    وهو الملاذ لنا غداً والمفزع  وإليه في يوم المعاد حسابنا

    "سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي أَسْرَى بِعَبْدِهِ لَيْلًا مِنَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ إِلَى الْمَسْجِدِ الْأَقْصَى الَّذِي بَارَكْنَا حَوْلَهُ" (الإسراء)
    "Glory be to God Who took His servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the Farthest Mosque, whose precincts We (God) did bless." (Quran 17:1)

    The Exalted Kaabah is not the first Qibla (direction of paryer - القبلة) in Islam Al-Aqsa Mosque (المسجد الأقصى) in al-Quds (القدس) is in fact the First Qibla (أولى القبلتين) towards which the early Muslims have prayed Indeed, the first true martyrs of Islam, who fought under the leadership of Prophet Muhammad, PBUH&HF, have been laid to rest facing towards al-Quds, Palestine (فلسطين). God willing, let's never forget that our dearest First Qibla and Third Mosque in Islam, al-Aqsa, is burdened by its occupation and awaiting its promised day of liberation by al-Imam al-Mahdi, PBUH&HF, (الإمام المهدي، عليه السلام). Verily, it is in al-Aqsa mosque where al-Imam al-Mahdi, PBUH&HF, and the Messenger of God Jesus son of Mary, Peace be upon them, (عيسى بن مريم، عليهما السلام), shall soon together pray.
