The Period of Prophet Ibrahim
Posted: 2 Rajab 1424, 30 August 2003
|Q.) About how many years ago did Hazrat Ibrahim (Alayhi Salaam) come and how many years ago did he build Ka'baa?|
A.) Ibn Tuloon (RA) has mentioned in Rasaail Taarikhiyya two views from Ebrahim (Alayhis salaam) to Nabi one is 4162 years and the other 4790 years. In another book Taarikh-e-Makkah Musharrafah wal Madina Musharrafah by ibn Diyaa, a narration of 4316 years is mentioned.
However, due to these being historical facts, we are unable to determine the authenticity of such narrations.
And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
