A slope of marble which is made in three sides in the bottom of the kabas' walls is called shadharwan or shazarwan. At the time of Qureshs' construction the width of the walls were kept little bit thinner than the original wall size made by Syedna Ibrahim allihisam. Because of this reason few inches of inner side of holy kaba had come outside which is present even today.
Slope is shadharwan. iron rings are fixed and ropes of drapery (ghalaf) fastened
If this slope
had not been made,pilgrims might have stepped in inner portion of
the kabba during tawaf beside kabba walls. To avoid such mistake
the shadharwan (slope)is made so that pilgrims might keep
themselves completely outside from the original foundations of
holy kabba during tawaf which is basic requirement of a valid
tawaf. As all of us know hateem is also an inner portion of kabba
but there is no roof over it even today and tawaf is done outside
hateem to fulfill the Basie requirement of tawaf.
height is 34 to 35 c.m
where as its' width is 45c.m.
corner of hajar-e-aswad to Rukn-e-iraqi = 23 stones
(multazim and kabba door come in between
so slope is not made with half of this wall )
( in between of these wall hateem lies which its
self is inner partof kaba ,so no shadharwan slopy
stone has been fixed here. only a liar of straight
bricks are fixed here in the bottom of kaba which
is called in arabic hajar-e-salwan which would be
described in next chapter inshaallah)
From Rukn-e-yemeni to corner of hajar-e-aswad =20 stones
