ZakĆ«t [literally] means purity, growth and evolution. Therefore, Zakiyyah probably has two meaning:
1-Â Â Â Pure (which means, a person who hasnât committed sin since her/ his birthday).
2-Â Â Â A perfect person, learned and eminent.
To confirm the first meaning, SalmÄn1 narrated, âBe aware! A person with a pure and innocent Nafs [ego/soul] will come, who will be killed between Rukn and MaqÄmâŠ2â
In regard with the second meaning, we should mention:
A-Â As the Emergence is the most important event in the world, its signs are of the specific importance too.
B-Â Choosing Masjid al- áž€arÄm3 in order to kill him [Al- Nafs al- Zakiyyah], shows the murderers wonât manage to catch, delay in killing, or take her/ him out of Masjid al- áž€arÄm. They will see it better to desecrate Masjid al- áž€arÄm, and kill him in this holy place.
1-SalmÄn the Persian or SalmÄn al-Farsi born RĆ«zbeh or MÄhbeh, was a companion of the Islamic prophet Muáž„ammad and the first Persian who converted to IslÄm. During some of his later meetings with the other Sahabah, he was referred to by the kunya Abu Abdullah (“Father of Abdullah”). He is credited with the suggestion of digging a trench around Medina when it was attacked by Mecca in the Battle of the Trench. He was raised as a Zoroastrian, then attracted to Christianity, and then converted to Islam after meeting Muhammad in the city of Yathrib, which later became Medina. According to some traditions, he was appointed as the governor of Al-Mada’in in Iraq. According to popular tradition, Muhammad considered Salman as part of his household (Ahl al-Bayt). He was a renowned follower of Ali ibn Abi Talib after the death of Muáž„ammad.
2-Â Â Â Â Rukn refers to the position of the specific black stone âHajar al- Aswadâ, which was brought from heaven to prophet IbrÄhÄ«m (pbuh). Â And Maqam refers to prophet IbrÄhÄ«m (pbuh)âs foot trace.
