The History of Makkah Mukarramah     by Dr Muhammad Ilyas Abdul Ghani

 A5 Size Paperback - 240 pages 

The religious and historical significance of Makkah Mukarramah can be judged from the fact that the Creator of the Universe, Allah Almighty has selected it to be the location of His most scared house, the
Ka’bah. This blessed city was home to Prophet Ismael and his mother Hajirah (peace and blessings of Allah be with them).

Countless Messengers and Pious Servants of Allah have undertaken journey to visit the House of Allah. The city houses the Masjid Haram in which the rewards of a single salaah are multiplied by a hundred thousand. The city has the location of Qiblah, a direction towards which every person performing salaah must face.

The city also has the privilege of being the birthplace of the Beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be with him), the final Messenger and Guide of the Worlds. It is in Makkah where the well of Zamzam is located, whose water is better and more blessed than the waters of the universe. Besides, there is a long history predating Prophet Ibrahim (peace and blessings of Allah be with him). Prophet Adam and Hawwa (peace and blessings of Allah be with them) spent time in Makkah when they were sent to earth from the Jannah. It is this city which Allah has made obligatory to travel and fulfil the rites of Hajj. Makkah has a very long history and numerous religious places in it.  

The History of Makkah Mukarramah begins with a discussion of the sacred nature of Makkah Mukarramah, the boundaries of the Haram (Sanctuary) and its sanctity. Then it discusses the superiority of Makkah and its virtues, narrating the Ahadith. Then it mentions the names of Makkah and their significance. The various boundaries of the Haram are described, which enclose an area of approximately 550 kms. The various Miquaat and their distances from Ka’bah are described in detail along with the details of the mosques at the various Miquaat. As expected, an entire chapter of the book is devoted to the Ka’bah and discusses its origins and construction/rebuilding, tracing the list of Khadimeen throughout the ages. The book naturally discusses the holy places in great detail, that are connected to Ka’bah, such as the Maqam-e-Ibrahim, Hajar-e-Aswad, Hateem/Hijr and Al-Multazam, Zamzarn and finally the hills of Safa and Marwah. The history of Ka’bah is intimately connected with Prophets Ibrahim and Ismael and Bibi Hajirah May Allah give them peace. The book records the most important historical aspects with ample references to the Qur’an and Ahadith. TheGhalaf-e-Ka’bah (with the arabic writing), the historical door, lock, and other parts are sure to satisfy the curious readers. The author takes the reader through the sequence of detailed sections on Mina, Muzdalifah and Arafat; in the process describing the arkan of Hajj. A chapter is devoted to theMasjidul-Haram and its expansion from the time of Khalifa-e-Rashideen to the present. The last chapter describes the numerous sites in and around Makkah, including: the Cave of Hira, various historical mosques and the cemtery (Qabrastan).
