KA’BAH

KA’BAH

The Ka’bah is the cube-shaped building covered with a black cloth in Makkah, Saudi Arabia that is believed by Muslims to have been the first house of worship to the Creator (God, Allah (swt)).

Muslims throughout the world face towards the Ka’bah when they perform each of their daily prayers.

Muslims believe that the first prophet on earth, Adam (as) built the original Ka’bah and that Prophets Abraham (as) and his son Ishmael (as) rebuilt and consecrated it as the first house of worship to Allah swt (God).
