Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal (d. 241H) on taking barakah from the Kaabah

Imam Ahmed on barakah from Kaaba

In the book “Zad al Musafir” by the Hanbali scholar,  Abu Bakr Abd al-Aziz, also known as Ghulam al-Khallal (d. 363H), the following report is related,

وقال في رواية حنبل: إذا أراد أن يَستَشفِيَ بشيء مِن طِيبِ الكعبة، لا يأخُذ مِن طِيبِ البيت شيئًا، ولكن يأتي بطِيبٍ مِن عندِهِ فيُلْزِقُه على البيت ثم يأخُذُه.

Rough translation:

It was reported from Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal that he said: If one wanted to seek cure with some ointment/perfume from the Kaaba, one does not take from the ointment that is on the (Sacred) House, but instead one comes with his own ointment and pastes it on the (Sacred) House and then takes it.
