Syrian corner or Rukn al Shami of kaaba

Share This Post

The Kaaba is a sacred building located in the center of the Great Mosque of Mecca, and it has four corners or pillars known as “Rukn” in Arabic. One of these pillars are named Rukn-al-Shami.

These corners hold great significance for Muslims, and pilgrims to Mecca make sure to touch or kiss them as part of their rituals during the Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages.

Rukn-al-Shami, also known as the “Syrian Corner,” is the corner of the Kaaba that is located towards the north. It is situated to the right of the black stone (Hajr-e-Aswad) that is embedded in the eastern corner of the Kaaba. This corner is also called the Iraqi corner because it faces towards Iraq and Syria.
