Some Noteworthy Points
Umm Hani radhiallahu anha, the daughter of Abu Talib, was the paternal cousin of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.
He would frequent her house regularly.
According to some narrations, on the night of Me’raj, the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam was resting at her home and it was from here that Me’raj took place, i.e. the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam was taken from Makkah to Jerusalem and from there to the Heavens.
Presently (2004, most probably it might still be the same today), this place is located in the Turkish section of the Haram in line with Rukn Yamani and is 120 metres away from it.
Entering the Masjid through Bab Malik Abdul Aziz (Door No. 1), down the passageway into the Turkish Extension, an extremely broad brownish stone mason pillar is noticeable, towards the far left side whilst facing the Ka’bah.
At its top, the inner sections of two domes are irregularly shaped compared to the others, as if they appear to be tents. This is reported to be the location of the house of Umm Hani radhiallahu anha.
It is reported that on the day of the Conquest of Makkah, the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam came to the home of Umm Hani, took a bath and performed 8 rakaats Salaatul Fath (Victory Salaah). It became the practice among Muslim leaders to perform this Salaah when they conquered new lands. Other narrations say it was the normal Salaatut Duha.
