The Reconstruction of Kaaba

The Kaaba was partially destroyed when a women inadvertently set the Kaaba alight and some floods also made some damage to ALLAH’s house. So in 600 CE the Quraysh tribe gathered funds to rebuild Kaaba. The new structure was built out of wood and stone, in alternate layers.

There was a huge disagreement between the tribes for the positioning of the black stone by there own hands so they’ll have the honor of placing it. Finally all of them agreed on a note that the first man entering the Haram will place the stone by his hand and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) entered the Haram and Prophet himself placed the stone.
