Rukan Yamani (The Yemani Corner) – South Western Corner of the Holy Kaaba


Incidentally in South Africa this is the corner of the Kaabah we generally face 


Did you know that one of the four corners of the Holy Ka’bah is not covered with Kiswa (black cloth)? In this article, we have detailed the history of Rukan Yamani – the south-western corner of the Holy Ka’bah that faces Yemen.


Rukan Yamani, also known as Rukn-al-Janubi and the Yemeni Corner, is located in the south-western corner of the Holy Ka’bah. It is parallel to Hajr-e-Aswad (the Black Stone), situated on the opposite end of the southern wall. The corner was given the name Rukan Yamani because it points towards the land of Yemen.



According to the hadith of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), Rukan Yamani, like Hajr-e-Aswad, can absolve people’s sins. Since then, it has become a Sunnah to touch the corner and pray for forgiveness while performing Tawaf.
