“Take as your place of worship the place where Abraham stood (to pray).”

Abstract:   (1772 Views)
In the verse “Take as your place of worship the place where Abraham stood (to pray)” Abraham’s position is an intense discussion among Fariqain commentators. Commentary of this verse as Mosalla of Tawaf prayer and Tawaf area has a practical and jurisprudential role during Hajj and Umrah. On commentary of Abraham’s position and his status, more than six exegetic viewpoints have been proposed from which the preferred one is the stony position. As a result, Abraham’s position is a part of Bait and Shrine. This viewpoint is in harmony with literary rules, commentary regulations and jurisprudential norms and also it is confirmed by Quran to Quran commentary method, succinct explanation of Quran and the ambiguous reference to the arbitrator. Interpreting the imperative verb “Take” and addressing the Islam’s Ummah, the holy Quran conveys the concept that in Mohammadian Shari’a, the position of this stone must be placed as Mosalla of obligatory Tawaf prayer. Although, based on historical and narrative reports the original place of the position has been changed since the prophetic age, stating the traditions of the Ahl-e Bayt, especially Razavi’s traditions, the present position has been approved and the worshippers of the Tawaf prayer need to stand in such a way that the position be placed between them and Ka’ba.
