It is a small pit adjacent to the wall of the Holy Ka'bah on the eastern side between the Iraqi corner and the door of the Holy Ka'bah. It was said to be the site of the location of Abraham's Station. During the reign of Umar Ibn Al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him), the temporary site of Abraham's Station was restored to its original place after the flooding of Umm Nahshal. The pit is also the place where the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him) performed prayer on the day of the conquest of Makkah, after leaving the Holy Ka'bah. It is also the place where Gabriel said his prayers. It is permanently closed now because people stumbled while performing tawaf around the Holy Ka'bah, but its place was marked by a square of marble in 1377 H. Opposite to it, there is a square piece of marble inscribed in Arabic but difficult to read. It is called the pit, the well, AI-Akhsaf and AI-Ghabghab.
The Support Beams Inside the Holy Ka'bah
They are the three wooden pillars that support the two ceilings of the Holy Ka bah. They were erected by Abdullah Ibn AI-Zubair (may Allah be pleased with them). The diameter of each pillar is about one cubit, and the distance between every two pillars is 2.35 metres.
Hangings in the Holy Ka'bah
• The hangings of the Holy Ka'bah are anything that are hung inside it on its walls, or the hooks that are fixed on its three pillars and in between. They may also be in goods or in the form of written documents.
• The caliphs, princes and wealthy people used to send gifts in kind to the Holy Ka'bah. These gifts were hung inside it and became its property. These included utensils made of gold and silver, plates inlaid with sapphires and pearls, jewels, precious stones, and so forth.
• The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him) kept all the belongings in the Holy Ka'bah except the pictures and statues.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
