Kaaba… The place where muslims turn to in prayer, it is the focal point of
the Hajj pilgrimages, it is the first house of
worship to be placed on earth. We cannot mention Al-Masjid al-Haram (Sacred Mosque)
without mentioning Al-Kaaba, as the history of the Sacred Mosque began with
building Al-Kaaba. It can also be referred to as Al-Bait Al-Haram (Sacred
House) because Allah has Prohibited waging war or fighting in it. It is
considered to be the most sacred place on earth.
