Ka’ba The sacred House of ALLAH

Holy Kaabah

The Ka’ba Holy place in the Grand Mosque of Mecca is, for Islam, the most mausoleum place on earth, and making the pilgrimage there at least once in one’s life is one of the main obligations of faithful Moslems. In the center of this city there is a small square building made of stones, about 60 feet long, 60 feet wide and 60 feet high. Since time age-old this town and this stone built house has been known to world travelers. This is Baitullah, the House of Allah. Its purity and relic is older than history itself.

The Kaaba that we see today is not exactly the same Kaaba that was designed and constructed by Prophets Ibrahim and Ismail From time to time; it has needed to build up after natural and man-made catastrophe. Qur’an brought this story into the full light of history. In Surah 3:90 Qur’an says

“Allah has spoken the Truth; therefore follow the creed of Ibrahim, a man of pure faith and no idolater”.

The first man was Muhammad, at that time known as al Amin (the trustworthy one).  He advised that they carry the black stone to its place in a mantle, each tribe holding an edge so that the cachet was distributed equally. When Muhammad received his epiphany from God, the Kaaba was under the control of one of the most important tribes of Mecca, the Quraysh.

The central event of the hajj is a visit to the Kaaba. Muslims walks counterclockwise around the Kaaba seven times (tawaf). This liturgy is supposed to represent the angels walking around the sovereignty of God and allows Muslims to symbolically enter the presence of God. For something so holy and model of Islam, the hajj is often blight by great suffering as large numbers of people are encroach under the feet of ardent congregation.

Over the traditions of Prophet Muhammad we learn that his beloved and admired wife AYESHA asked about the wall and the door. She says, “I asked the Messenger of God about the wall and whether it was part of the House [the Ka’ba]. He said, ‘Yes.’ I asked, ‘So why it is not integrated into the House?’ He said, ‘Your people ran out of money.’  I asked, ‘What about the door? Why is it high up?’ He said, ‘Your people did that so they could let in whomever they wanted and keep out whomever they wanted. If it were not for the fact that your people are still new [in Islam] and too close to their time of ignorance, I would incorporate the wall into the House and bring the door down to ground level.

The Kaaba is one of the most esteemed places for Muslims. That is why they always give it a special care especially as far as cleaning it. The Kaaba, covered in the best of silk apparel and embellished with a door of gold, is a piece of art.

Religion Islam asks us to enjoin the good and better and forbid the bad and evil.

Respect for humanity is staying away from sins and things that will create discord among the people especially among Muslims and lead towards destruction.  Respect involves loving for our brothers and sisters whatever we love for ourselves. Respect also includes treating other peoples the way we expect them to treat us and the way we hope ALLAH Almighty will treat us with love, compassion and mercy.

Major sins create barrier between humanity and cause all the misery, conflicts torment, and evil activities in this world. ALLAH Almighty commands us to stay away from all kind of sin. Evil and bad activities like backbiting and cheating, gossip as these things bring about nothing but disgrace and shame. In present time Backbiting has become so widespread that each and every person uses it as a way of expressing jealousy and anger.  Those who engage in these kinds of false activities are harming others and disobeying ALLAH Almighty. The sin is grave and for this punishment is severe, but ALLAH Almighty is Merciful and always accepts sincere repentance.
