In order to avoid any person being deprived of the noble task of reconstructing the Ka‘bah, the reconstruction was distributed among the various clans. Hence, each portion of the Ka‘bah was assigned to a different clan.

The portion near the door was assigned to the Banu ‘Abd-e-Manaaf and the Banu Zuhrah. The area between the Hajr-e-Aswad and Rukn-e-Yamaani was allocated to the Banu Makhzoom and other tribes of the Quraish. The rear portion of the Ka‘bah was allocated to the Banu Jumah and the Banu Sahm, whilst the Hateem section was assigned to the Banu ‘Abd-ud-Daar bin Qusayy, ibn Asad and the Banu ‘Adi.

At this time, the Quraish learnt of a merchant ship that was recently wrecked in the port of Jeddah. On hearing this, Waleed bin Mugheerah immediately set off for Jeddah and managed to obtain the timber of this ruined vessel for the roof of the Ka‘bah. A Roman builder by the name of Baaqoom had been aboard this ship. Waleed bin Mugheerah also brought him with to assist in the reconstruction.
