This is the picture of  main gate of holy masjid-ul-haram in  Makkah----Bab-e-Abdul aziz.If someone enters in Haram through this gate ,may find the place where the animal Buraq was fastened in maraj night and the holy prophet Muhammad sallalla ho allihi wasalam started his first phase of land journey towards alquads --Masjid-e-aqsa.This land journey is called "ISRA" which means FAST

MASJID-UL-HARAM )        


This is the picture of hateem and according to a school of thoughts ,it is the place where the holy prophet Muhammad Sallallaho allihi wasalam was taking rest in the night of 27th Rajab when holy angle jibrael allihi salam and mikael allihisalam came  alongwith 70 thousand other angels  to take the beloved prophet to the skies. 
Though Hateem is half circled area adjecent to holy kabba having no roof  as shown through arrow  yet It is  the part of holy kabba and tawaf is done outside covering it.

This is the place where holy prophet Ismail allihisalam and his mother syeda hajra allihisalam are 
lying to rest.

       ( PICTURE SHOWING HATEEM JUST ADJECENT TO HOLY KABB)

 

According to another school of thought  he sallalla ho allihi wasalam was taking rest in  the house of his cousin syeda um-e-Hanni when  holy angle Jibrael came to take him to skies for MARAj. The house of syeda um-e-Hani was out of Harm shareef in those days but was very near to hateem  as haram was not so big then as it is today. Due to expension of Harm , now house of syeda umm-e-Hani has come inside the haram very near to mutaf. In 147 hijra it came into haram boundaries due to its' extension .

       VERY NEAR TO THE LOCATION OF  SYEDA  UMM-E-HANI  HOUSE )

And a zam zam water room at your left.

This pillar is thin as compared to all other pillars of masjid-ul-haram and it is not made of marble. it is mosaic-ed pillar. It is not very decorated as other pillars are.



    (PICTURE SHOWING PILLAR FROM OTHER ANGLE  
          IT IS THE POINT OF STARTING JOURNEY BY
              BURRAQ TOWARDS MASJID-E-AQSA )


It is the source of zam zam water which was used by angle Jibrael Allihisalam to wash the holy heart of beloved Prophet Muhammad sallalla ho allihi wasalam before departing towards Alqudas-Masjid-e-Aqsa.

This is the picture of holy foot print of Prophet Muhammad sallalla ho allihi wasalam.

THOUGH YELLOW  domb  IS  VERY  HOLY  PLACE AND  IS BUILT OVER THE  ROCK BUT BE AWARE IT IS NOT MASJID-E-AQSA .MASJID -E-AQSA   IS IN FRONT OF TOMB. IT  IS  SAID DOMB IS THE PLACE WHERE THE BURAQ WAS FASTENED .
