Kaaba: The Holiest place for Muslims

Kaaba Kaaba is Islam's most sacred location and pilgrimage (Hajj) shrine. Kaaba is located in the courtyard of the Great Mosque of Makkah. According to the Quran, the cubic-shaped structure was built by Abraham and Ishmael. A trough in which they mixed mortar stands near the door and is a popular place of prayer. The Kaaba houses the Black Stone which is one of the most sacrad object for Muslims.

The Black stone (hajar-e-Aswad) is thought to have been given to Ishmael by the angel Gabriel. When Muhammad began to preach Islam in Makkah, the Kaaba was a shrine for the pagan deities of the Arabs. The Kaaba was rededicated to Allah after the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) established control of Makkah. All Muslims face toward the Kaaba during their five daily prayers.
