Surah al-Imran Verse 95-96 of Holy Quran:
Say, “ALLAH has told the truth. So follow the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth; and he was not of the polytheists. Indeed, the first House [of worship] established for mankind was that at Makkah – blessed and guidance for the worlds.
Since the creation of world with its contents, there is nothing which has received such a degree of respect, dedication and glorification as much as the Holy Kaaba has. You will find at all times Muslims tawaaf or circumambulation it, remembering ALLAH and glorifying Him. The hearts of all Muslims are directed to the Holy Kaaba from all corners of the globe. This unique sacred House of ALLAH, situated at that holy spot, has had more impact on the hearts of all human beings over the course of time than any other spot of Worship. Even the polytheists at the pre-Islamic period used to place their idols round that holy House in misbelieve that they acted as mediators to ALLAH Almighty.
The history books narrate many different stories and homilies about the construction of the Holy Kaaba. It was also said that it was built by
Hazrat Adam (AS), yet others say that it was created by ALLAH one thousand years before the creation of world and then earth was created under it. These different stories are considered as historical whose verification doesn’t prejudice the basic branches or principles of the religion.
