The Tripoli Footprint replica is an authentic replica of the existing Footprint that belonged to the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. The original Footprint is located in the Topkapi Museum in Istanbul, Turkey.
It has been recorded in the literature of the early Islamic tradition that whenever the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ stepped on a rock, his foot left an imprint. This is one popular miracle, attributed to our Beloved Messengerﷺ, amongst many others.
During the reign of Sultan Abdulmejid, a Sacred Footprint of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was brought to him, from Tripoli, by an army commander named Ahmed Bey. The Sacred Footprint was presented to the Sultan as a gift. The original Footprint is of the Prophet's ﷺ right Foot on colored porphyry marble. The heel section is broken and bound with silver wires.
In return for his service, Ahmed Bey was given a reward of 114,000 kurush. The Footprint he brought from Tripoli was originally located inside the recessed closet opposite the entrance to the Throne Room in the Topkapi Palace. A marble middle shelf had a carved space especially for the relic. A silver frame and cover were attached to the middle shelf. Abdulhamid II (1876-1906) had a new gold cover made in 1877.
The mould of the Tripoli Footprint of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was retrieved professionally by an associate of Rumi’s Garden and was sent to craftsmen who specifically make casts for museums. Great care has been taken to make sure that details are conserved.
