Description: Vintage watercolour painting of the Holy Kaaba
The Story: In the province of Hejaz lies the town of Mecca. In the centre of the town there is a small square building made of stones, about 60 feet square. The building is known as the Kaaba or Baitallah. Tradition goes that the Kaaba was ordained by Allah (AWJ) to be built in the shape of the House in Heaven called Baitul Ma’amoor. Allah (AWJ) in his infinite mercy ordained a similar place on earth and Prophet Adam was the first to build it.
The Bible describes the Kaaba when God Almighty ordained Abraham to go to the Southern desert with His wife Hager and infant son Ismael and erect a shrine for worship. The old Testament describes this building as the shrine of God at several places. There is no doubt that it was referring to the stone-built house at Mecca. The Holy Quran brought this story into full light in Surah 3 verse 95: “Allah has spoken the truth, therefore follow the creed of Ibrahim, a man of pure faith and no idolater". Today all Muslims aspire to undertake a pilgrimage to this blessed site and pray five times a day in the direction of the Kaaba.
