Date of the incident of the Quraysh rebuilding the ka’bah

Question

When did the following incident take place (at what age of Nabi sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam’s life) ?

“…ij’al izaraka ‘ala ‘atiqika…”

 

Answer

This is recorded by Imams Bukhari and Muslim (rahimahumallah).

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 1582 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 769)

 

This occurred five years before Prophethood. Rasulullah’s (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) age would have been about thirty five at that time.

(Fathul Bari, Hadith: 1582)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
