‏الحج (The Book of Pilgrimage)
CHAPTER: THE WALL OF THE KA'BA AND ITS DOOR  

No. 3087

'A'isha (Allaah be pleased with her) reported: I asked Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) about the wall, circumpassing the House (i. e. whether the wall on the side of Hijr was included in the Ka'ba). He said, Yes. I said: Then why did they not include it in the House? He said: 'Your people ran short of the means (to do so). I said: Why is it that the level of its door is raised high? He said: Your people did it so that they should admit one whom they liked, and forbid him whom they disliked, and if your people were not new converts to faith, and I did not apprehend that their hearts would feel agitated at this. I would have definitely included (the area of) this wall-in the House and would have brought the door to the level of the ground.

No. 3088

'A'isha reported: I asked Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) about Hijr, and the rest of the hadith is the same. I also said: Why is it that the door has been made on a higher level, and one cannot (get into it) but with the help of a ladder? The rest of the hadith is the same as reported above and the concluding words are: (I do not change it) out of the apprehension that their hearts may disapprove of it."
