f:537 -    What is the excellence  of Rukn Yamani
Country : Not mentioned,
Name : Qutub Aqeel
Question:     What is the excellence of Rukn Yamani?  Why do people want to touch it?
............................................................................
Answer:     In Tawaf, the Istelaam of Rukn Yamani is Mustahab (commendable).  Sins are forgiven because of this.  There is a Hadith in Sahih Muslim:

Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abdullah Bin Mas'ud (May Allah be well pleased with him), he says:  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) would perform Istelaam of Hajr Aswad and Rukn Yamani.  (Sahih Muslim, Hadith No. 3122)

There is a Hadith in Musnad Iman Ahmed bin Hambal:

Translation: Indeed! The Istelaam of Hajr Aswad and Rukn Yamani causes the sins to fall off.  (Musnad Iman Ahmed bin Hambal, Hadith No. 4555)


And Allah Most High knows best.
