|The Kabah in the Bible|
The Kabah is the first house built for the worship of God. It is in Makkah, Saudi Arabia. It was initially constructed by Prophet Aadam alaihis salaam.
Prophet Abraham Ibrahim alaihis salaam and his son Ismail alaihis salaam later reconstructed it.
‘Verily, the first house (of worship) appointed for mankind was that in Bakka (Makkah), full of blessing, and guidance for all people.’ (Quraan, 3:96)
According to the Bible Bakka is mentioned by Prophet David (Dawood) alaihis salaam in Psalms: ‘Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well, the rain also filleth the pools.’ (Psalm 84:6) The well here is the famous well of Zam Zam, still present now, close to the Kabah after thousands of years.
The Bible, in the Chapter of Genesis, describes the rebuilding that was done later when God ordained Abraham alaihis salaam to erect a Shrine for worship when Abraham alaihis salaam was ordered to go to the southern desert with his wife Hagera and infant son Ismail alaihis salaam. The Old Testament describes this building as the Shrine of God at several places. The Quraan also mentions the rebuilding of the Kabah in the second chapter.
Ultimately, it is the Muslims who are holding on to the way and original teachings of the Prophets of the past, as taught and expounded by Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. This is true with regards to prayer, Qurbani (animal sacrifice) and many other aspects.
