Mujjan is infact the place where
first time the holy angel syedna jibrael allihi salam guided prophet
Munammad sallalla ho alli hi wasalam how to offer salat. After
commandment of five mandatory prayers in a day,
angel jibraeel A.S descended two contineous days near the holy kabba
door and by the order of Almighty Allah he learnt prophet muhammad
sallallaho allihi wasalm how to offer prayer.
The method of offering salah was not told verbally but 10 practical
salat [prayrs] offered contineously two days near holy kabba door
was led by
prophet Muhammad sallallaho allihi wasalam and many angels and
companions of prophet sallalla ho allihi wasalam jointly offered salah.
This historic event had taken place near to the door of kabba and
that particular spot near the door of kabba is called MUJJAN or
the slope 6 brown marble indicates the place of Mujjan or
Previously till 1958 a symbol
of this musala was present on the floor near the kabba door in a rectangle pit hole shape but it used to
distrub pilgrims during tawaf .So it is now filled and leveled
and two symbolic SQUARES have been drawn on the floor alongwith
six brown marbles as you see in above picture has been
fixed to indicate the exact location of Mujjan.[see two pictures below]
An old kabba pcture the symbol
of musala -e-jibrael [a pit hole] is visible.

In this picture

fixed leading the prayer of
eid near MUJJAN(see two RED DOTS).
fact it is not permenent place of imam-e-kabba todayto lead prayers
but in rush time specially on the eve of eid or Ramazan when tawaf
isstopped during mendatory salat, imam generally stands on the
spot of Mujjan .
In this picture Imam-e-kabba is offering nafil salat before starting
eid prayer in Hateem (seeone RED DOT)
For academic knowledge it is to be
noted that syedna jibraeel A.S came near the door of kabba 10 times in
two days, offering each salat twice. It was very logical to determine
the timing of salat. On first day he came at starting time of 5 salat
and on the next day he repeated this practice by coming at the closing
time of each salat. In this way alongwith learing the method of
offering salat, the duration of each 5 salat also established .
The arrangement of these 10 prayers
had started from Zuhar prayer and ended on Fajir prayer.[ first day 4
prayers + second day 5 prayers + third day 1 prayer = 10 prayers. ]
