It’s related to the story of the prophet Ibrahim and his son Ismail when they built the Kaaba and the stone used by the prophet Ibrahim to reach the roof of the kaaba

This stone is located near the Holy Ka'aba. Prophet Ibrahim (A) used this stone as his station while building the Holy Ka'aba. A very sacred place.

According to the Qur'an, Prophets Ibrahim and Ismail (peace be upon them) together built the Ka'aba. To reach the top of the Kaaba, Prophet Ibrahim (A) stood on a large rock and his feet left their prints, bearing witness of his great deed for all time.

The Maqame Ebrahim refers to the stone on which Ebrahim (upon him be peace) stood on while he was building the Ka’bah. As Ismail (upon him be peace) passed stones to Ebrahim (upon him be peace), and as Ebrahim (upon him be peace) continued laying them in place the Maqame Ebrahim miraculously continued rising higher and higher as the walls rose. Allah (Glorified and Exalted is He) caused the trace of his footprints to remain on the stone as a reminder to the believers among his descendants.

It has been reported from Sa’eed bin Jubair (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) said: “The stone is the station of Ebrahim. Allah made it soft and made it a mercy. Ebrahim would stand on it and Ismail would hand the stones up to him.” [Muthir Al-Gharam]
Ebrahim and Ismail (upon them be peace) used to mention the following Quranic verse as they were constructing the Holy Ka’bah,“Our Lord! Accept (this service) from us: for you are the All-Hearing, The All-Knowing.” [2:127]
Ebrahim (upon him be peace) constructed the Ka’bah using rocks from five mountains; Hira, Thubayr, Labnaan, Toor and Jabalul Khayr. Toor Seena (Mount Sinai) is actually situated in the eastern desert of Egypt.
