Imam Ali (A) birth in Ka’abah becomes fresh every year
Al-Imam Ali ibne Abi Talib (peace be upon him), son-in-law, cousin and the first infallible successor of holy Prophet Muhammad bin Abdullah (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) was born on Rajab 13 in the Holy Ka’abah (House of Allah) in the holy city of Makkah, Saudi Arabia. His mother Fatimah Bint Assad (peace be upon her), at the time of his birth, was called to the holy Ka’abah and as she came close to it, the wall of Ka’abah became cracked and she was ordered by Allah to enter it. There Imam Ali was born and she remained guest of Allah for three days there. After three days she came out of Ka’abah holding little Imam Ali (peace be upon him) in her lap.
Every year on Rajab 13, the cracks became new recalling everyone the
miracle. For centuries, the Saudi governments have been trying every
treatment to conceal these cracks but failed.
Dr. Tariq Al-Kateb, who was included in the committee that entered Ka’abah to treat the cracks that became new every year,says that from inside holy Ka’abah there are very clear signs of Fatimah bint Assad (peace be upon her)’s entrance and then exit.
Here is a photographic report of cracks:
