About Station of Ibrahim

Station of Ibrahim is a stone associated with Abraham, Ishmael the reverend Islamic gurus and their rebuilding of the Ka‘bah.  The imprint on the stone is believed to have come from Abraham's feet.  One tradition says it appeared when Abraham stood on the stone while building the Kaaba. It is said that when the walls became too high, Abraham stood on the stone, which rose up to let him continue building and also went down in order to allow Ishmael to hand him stones. Another view is when Abraham stood on it in order to call the people to perform the pilgrimage to Mecca. The places give an insight to the devotees of the God's powerful presence around the area.
