What is the Kabah?

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 What is the Ka'bah?

The Ka'bah is the central place of worship for Muslims, located in Makkah, Saudi Arabia. This is the first House of God built by Adam (peace be upon him), the forefather of mankind. This place of worship was demolished during the great flood of Noah, peace be upon him, and rebuilt by the Prophet Abraham and his son Ishmael, peace be upon them. This is a cube shape building in the center of sacred Mosque called Al-Masjid Al-Haraam.

This sanctuary can accommodate over one million worshippers at a time. Every year over three million worshippers visit the Ka'bah during Hajj and Umrah (pilgrimage at anytime other than the time of Hajj).
