Shia point of view

The Shia sect of Islam attached a great event with this crack in the Holy Kaaba. The mother of the fourth Caliph of Hazrat Ali ุฑูŽุถููŠูŽ ูฑู„ู„ูŽู‘ูฐู‡ู ุนูŽู†ู’ู‡ู started circumambulating the Holy Kaaba when she began having labor pains.

At that time, the Holy Kaaba was opened for her. She went inside and gave birth to Hazrat Ali ุฑูŽุถููŠูŽ ูฑู„ู„ูŽู‘ูฐู‡ู ุนูŽู†ู’ู‡ู. According to them, the crack in the wall of the Holy Kaaba is due to that opening.

Sunni point of view

Sunnis believe that the crack in the Holy Kaaba is not related to any historical event. It is due to natural calamities and the harsh weather that it has been facing for years now. The Saudi government has repaired the crack.

While Sunnis also believe that Hazrat Ali ุฑูŽุถููŠูŽ ูฑู„ู„ูŽู‘ูฐู‡ู ุนูŽู†ู’ู‡ู was born inside the Holy Kaaba, but they do not accept the story claimed by Shia people that the wall of the Holy Kaaba, was opened for the mother of Hazrat Ali ุฑูŽุถููŠูŽ ูฑู„ู„ูŽู‘ูฐู‡ู ุนูŽู†ู’ู‡ู.

Therefore, they do not believe that the crack in the Holy Kaaba is due to this.
