Prophet Muhammad (saw)
and the Black Stone
The Prophet Muhammad (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) was a wise man, even before he received the revelations of the Qur'an from Allah (subhanahu wa Ta'ala).
When the Prophet Muhammad (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) was a young man, about thirty-five years old, the people of his home town, Makkah, decided to rebuild the sacred masjid of Makkah, the Ka'bah.
Since there were many big families at Makkah, they worked separately, family by family, until the walls were high enough for the black stone to be built again into its corner.
Then a violent argument broke out among them; for each family wanted the honour of putting the black stone into its place. The disagreement lasted for four or five days and anger had increased to the point that they were ready to fight with arms, when the oldest man present suggested a solution.
