A pregnant Indonesian woman visited the grand mosque of Makkah to offer Umrah in Saudi Arabia. The woman was praying in the mosque and at that time she went into Labor.
The baby was born inside Masjid al-Haram
On noticing the condition of the woman, the female medical team was called to help her and deliver her baby safely and securely.
The female medical team deployed the women to the Praying hall where the baby was delivered safely by the Grace of Allah. Both the woman and the baby were in good health.
The medical supervisor said that delivering the baby at that time was an easy process and they did not face any hardships.
Not the first baby inside the Masjid
The Indonesian baby might not be the first baby to be born near the Holy Kaaba. There might be several babies born in the grand mosque but we are not aware of it because they did not get any coverage. Although we can say that the babies are quite lucky to be born there.
Moreover, History states that the Fourth Caliph of Islam Ali Ibne Abi Talib رضي الله عنه was also born near the Holy Kaaba. The mother of Ali رضي الله عنه went into labor during the Tawaf and then he was born.
Some people think that it is something special to deliver a baby in the holy cities of Makkah and Madina. Believe me, it is not referred to anywhere in Islam. Makkah and Madina are sacred cities but being born there don’t guarantee a good character or Jannah.
