Al-Multazam is a sacred area located in the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is a small space between the door of the Kaaba and the Black Stone, which is believed to be a place where prayers are answered. Muslims believe that supplications made in this area are more likely to be answered by Allah.
The name “Al-Multazam” comes from an Arabic word which means “the place where one holds onto firmly”. It is considered a highly spiritual and blessed area, and many Muslims visit it during their pilgrimage to Mecca (Hajj) or during Umrah.
During the Hajj, it is customary for pilgrims to approach the Kaaba and make dua (supplications) while holding onto the walls of the Kaaba or to the area of Al-Multazam. This practice is considered an act of great devotion and humility towards Allah.
The significance of Al-Multazam is rooted in Islamic history and traditions. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is reported to have said that whoever prays at the Kaaba and touches the Black Stone, and then touches Al-Multazam and makes dua, their dua will be granted. This belief is shared by many Muslims, who consider Al-Multazam to be a sacred and special place of supplication.
