130. The reason due to which the Kabah was named as Kabah

Back to book

أخبرني علي بن حاتم قال: أخبرنا القاسم بن محمد عن حمدان بن الحسين عن الحسين بن الوليد، عن حنان قال: قلت لابي عبد الله عليه السلام لم سمي بيت الله الحرام؟ قال: لانه حرم على المشركين ان يدخلوه.


1. Ali Bin Hatim informed me, from Al Qasim Bin Muhammad, from Hamdan Bin Al Husayn, from Al Husayn Bin Al Waleed, from Hanan who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (a.s.), ‘Why was the House of Allah (azwj) (Kabah) named as Al-Haraam (The Sacred)?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Because it is Prohibited (Haraam) upon the Polytheists that they should enter into it’.
