Arbitration Issue During Rebuilding Kabah
Before five years from the prophethood started, the care taker of Holy Kabah, Quraish started the rebuilding of it. Kabah was a low building not more than 8-9 arms length without roof since the time of Hazrat Ismail. Meanwhile heavy rain and flood had damaged the walls. Reconstruction started with the consent of heads of tribe Quraish. Working went on smoothly till the time came to place the sacred black stone at its proper place. Now the dispute started as every tribe wanted for the honor of placing Hajr-e- Aswad in its position. A severe bloodshed was expected to occur. Two prominent chiefs of tribe, Al Makhzumi and Abu Bin Mughira proposed that one who enters the premises of Kabah first, decide the issue. He was prophet of Allah, Hazrat Muhammad to enter the mosque. All people shouted with joy, Ameen (trust worthy) has come. He was informed of the matter. A mantle was asked, spreading on ground. Stone was placed on centre. He asked the representative to lift all together. When it reached the proper place, Muhammad placed it on its position. This was one of the examples of his wisdom and exemplary insight.
