  1. Istilaam on Rukn e Yamani

Due to the fact that Rukn al Yamani is currently standing on the very same foundation that the Prophet Ibrahim A.S. had built, a narration by Abdullah bin Abbas has stated that Prophet Muhammad S.A.W had made Istilaam on it.

The Istilaam of the Rukn is referred to as the touching of the corner, whether it is done by kissing or by hand.

Due to the fact that Prophet Muhammad S.A.W used to Istilaam by touching the Rukn al Yamani by hand, the practice is considered to be Sunnah. However, there is no harm if any pilgrim or worshipper is not able to reach and touch the Rukn al Yamani due to the massive crowds inside.
