    Treasure of the Kaaba

    kaaba2JPG 1 - Treasure of the Kaaba
    I have read once that at some point, three khalifs will be fighting over the treasures of the kaaba, this as a sign of the day of judgement?... does anyone know anything about that? or if it is true -- if indeed true May I please see the hadith?
    Also can anyone validate the long quote on the bottom about the destruction/construction of Kaaba? and does anyone know what the treasures are or where they are or who the three khalifs might be?
    thank you


    On 5 Nov 96, received an e-mail re:"Treasure of the Kaaba." I came across this related quote that may be helpful from pages 215-8 of the recent first volume of TAFSIR IBN KATHIR, abridged by Sheikh Muhammad Nasib ar-Rifa'i, published by al-Firdous Ltd. London 1996:

    [--Start Quote]

    Quraysh's Construction of the House (Ka'bah) After Abraham (as) and Before the Rise of Muhammad (saws)

    Five years before the appointment of Muhammad (saws) as the final Prophet, the Quraysh unanimously agreed to demolish the House and rebuild it to make it stronger. They agreed among themselves that the money spent towards its re-construction should come from lawful means only and that they would prohibit taking a prostitute's dowry for it or dealing in usury for it, or money taken from someone unjustly. Up to that point, the House had been divided into several partitions belonging to the different tribes of the Quraysh. Each group had its own space or corner.

    All members of the Quraysh dreaded demolishing the House and so they avoided it. Al-Walid Ibn al-Mughira offered to begin the task and he lifted the axe saying: "Lord! we only mean well." He then started to demolish one corner of the House. The people watched him awaiting some misfortune to happen to him. They had all agreed that if anything happened to him they would cease the demolition and would repair the damage as if nothing had happened. However, they all agreed that if nothing happened it would mean that Allah was pleased with the act. As nothing happened, al-Walid and the rest of the Quraysh continued demolishing the House until they reached Abraham's foundation. The foundation was of green stones like intertwined arrowheads.

    Muhammad Ibn Ishaq narrated from a hadith narrator that a man of Quraysh who participated in the demolition inserted a lever between two stones because he wanted to lift one of them. When the stone moved, the whole of Makkah shook. The people then decided not to dig further than where the foundation was

    Everyone participated in carrying the stones and in constructing the House, until they came to the Black Stone. They argued and debated as to which tribe was to have the honour of lifting it and putting it in its place. Fighting was prevented by Abu Umayyah Ibn al-Mughirah al-Makhzumi who said:"O' People of Quraysh! Let the first man to enter the gate of the mosque be your judge." They agreed. The first to enter was Muhammad (saws). They said: "Here comes the trustworthy one (Al-Amin in Arabic) whom we take as our judge." They consulted Muhammad (saws), and he said: "Bring me a cloak." When they brought him the cloak he placed the Black Stone on it and said: "Let the elders of each tribe hold on to one edge of the cloak and raise it (to the position of the stone)." They did so and the Prophet (saws) placed the stone in its place.

    The Ka'bah remained as such until it burnt down at the beginning of 'Abdullah Ibn az-Zubayr's reign in the year 60 AH, and at the end of Yazid Ibn Mu'awiya's rule, when Ibn Az-Zubayr was besieged and he demolished the Ka'bah and rebuilt it on top of Abraham's foundations. He realigned its northern wall by five arm lengths and added an eastern and a western entrance at floor level. He did this because he had heard this from his aunt 'Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her), Mother of the Believers, who quoted the Prophet (saws). The Ka'bah remained in this state until he was killed by al-Hajjaj who restored it to its previous form on the orders of 'Abd al-Malik Ibn Marwan. This was narrated by Muslim in his Sahih on the authority of 'Ata.

    The Sunnah supported the act of 'Abdullah Ibn Az-Zubayr because that was what the Prophet (saws) had wanted (as is apparent form the Hadith of 'Aisha). This Sunnah was unknown to 'Abdul Malik Ibn Marwan, and when he realisd that 'Aisha quoted the Prophet (saws) regarding this story, he wished he had not issued such an order.

    Muslim narrated in his Sahih from Abu Qaza'ah that when 'Abdul Malik Ibn Marwan was circumambulating the House, he cursed Ibn Az-Zubayr thinking that he had lied about what 'Aisha had said. He said that he heard her saying that the Prophet (saws) had told her: "O' 'Aisha! Were it not for the fact that your people have recently accepted Islam (still fresh from unbelief), I would have demolished the Ka'bah and included in it a portion of al-Hijr. Your people have curtailed its building."1 Al-Harith Ibn 'Abdullah Ibn Abu Rabi'a said: "O Leader of the Believers (that is 'Aisha) say this" Ibn Marwan said that if he had heard this Hadith before he ordered the demolition of the House, he would have left it as Ibn Az-Zubayr had built it. This Hadith is valid because it was narrated in several versions, all of which are authentic. This confirmed that what Ibn Az-Zubayr did was right. Left untouched it would have been a good structure. Malik Ibn Anas prohibited ar-Rashid, or maybe ar-Rashid's father al-Mahdi, from the demolition of the House so as to return it to Abraham's foundations and to prevent this becoming a habit of later leaders, to demolish it whenever they wanted.

    The Ka'bah will retain its present structure until it is destroyed by "Dhus-Suwayqatayn" from Ethiopia as mentioned in Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim on the authority of Abu Hurayrah (ra) who said the Prophet (saws) said: "The Ka'bah will be destroyed by Dhus-Suawayqatayn (that is literally, a man with two lean legs".2 There is also another narration on the authority of 'Abdullah Ibn 'Amr Ibn al-'As (ra) who said: "I heard the Prophet (saws) : 'A man from Ethiopia with two lean legs will destroy the Ka'bah, take away its treasures and remove its covers. As if I were looking at him, he is a bald man with crooked arms and legs who is attacking the Ka'bah with his iron shovel and pickaxe."3 this will occur after the appearance of "Ya'juj and Ma'juj" (Gog and Magog) as mentioned in Sahih al-Bukhari quoting Abu Sa'id al-Khudri (ra) that the Prophet (saws) said: "the people will continue performing Hajj and Umrah even after the appearance of Gog and Magog".4

    1 Sahih (al-Bukhari 1/44, 491, 3/197, 4/412; Muslim 4/99-100; at-Tirmidhi 1/66 and Ibn Majah,2955. See al-Albani's As-Sahihah 1/43). 2 Sahih 3 Sahih (al-Bukhari and Muslim. See al-Mishkat, no. 2721) 4 Sahih

    Yes the above is quoted in the book "History of Makkah" prepared by a group of scholars under the supervision of Shakh Safiur-Rahman Mubarakpuri.
    Also under the heading "The Destruction of Kabah at the End of Time":

    It was reported from Sa'eed bin Sa'man that he heard Abu Hurrairah (Rahi Allah Unho) telling Abu Qatadah that Allah's Messenger said:
    "Allegiance will be sworn to a man between the Rukn and the Maqam, and no one will violate the sancitity of this house except it's own people. When they violate it, do not ask about the destruction of the Arabs. Then the Abyssinians will come and destroy it in such a way that it will never be rebuilt, and they are the ones who will extract its treasures." [Al-burhari (2118)]

    It's a small chapter, you can read this Hadith and the rest here.

    I sense some shi'ite injections somewhere in the story.
    Treasure of the Kaaba

    It is not Al-Birr (piety, righteousness, and obedience to Allâh, etc.) that you turn your faces towards east and (or) west (in prayers); but Al-Birr is (the quality of) the one who believes in Allâh, the Last Day, the Angels, the Book, the Prophets and gives his wealth, in spite of love for it, to the kinsfolk, to the orphans, and to Al-Masâkîn (the poor), and to the wayfarer, and to those who ask, and to set slaves free, performs As-Salât, and gives the Zakât, and keep their word whenever they make a promise, and who are patient in extreme poverty and ailment (disease) and at the time of persecution, hardship, and war. Such are the people of the truth and they are Al-Muttaqûn (the pious).

    This portion gives me suspicion:
