It is narrated in the books of biographies that Ismaeel peace be upon him was buried in al-Hateem* (in Makkah), if the grave was in al-Hateem then how is the Prayer permissible in that place?
* Translators note: ‘al-Hateem’: It is a semicircular wall on one side of the Ka’bah, the extremities of which are in a line with the sides of the Ka’bah, and distant about six feet leaving an opening. It was originally part of the foundations of the Ka’bah. It should also be noted that it is not permissible to make at-Tawaaf between the wall and the Ka’bah because it is considered going through the Ka’bah rather than around it.
