عن عبد الله بن عمر -رضي الله عنهما- قال: «لَمْ أَرَ النبِيَّ -صلَّى الله عليه وسلَّم يَستَلمُ- منَ البيتِ إِلا الرُّكنَينِ اليَمَانِيَينِ».
[صحيح.] - [متفق عليه.]
المزيــد ...

‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, reported: "I did not see the Prophet, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, wiping with his hand anything of the House except the two Yemeni Corners.”

Explanation

The Prophet, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, did not use to touch any of the four corners of the Ka‘bah except the Black Stone Corner and the Yemeni Corner. The House has four corners. The eastern corner has two merits: 1. It was built on the foundations of Ibrahim. 2. It accommodates the Black Stone. The Yemeni Corner has one merit: it was built on the foundations of Ibrahim. The Shami and Iraqi Corners do not have any of these merits. The Black Stone was taken out of the Ka‘bah from their side. It is recommended to touch and kiss the Black Stone, and touch the Yemeni corner without kissing it. However, it is not permissible to touch or kiss the other two corners. The Islamic legislation is based on compliance not innovation, and there is a divine wisdom behind everything in the Shariah of Allah.
