Swimming for Tawafٍ

The caption reads: A picture story of the Harram (sanctuary i.e. Kaba) taken in the year 1941. Rain fell so hard that the water level rose up to the black stone. And people had to do their tawaaf around the Kaba while swimming.

SubhanAllah, I can't even imagine swimming in an ihraam! Probably need to some special locking devices. And we know that this happened even in the times of the Sahaba, with Abdullah ibn Zubair having been narrated to have done.

Picture Stories on this Blog are being Collected HERE.
