Adam built a tent to worship God… and this place was surrounded with mercy.

.Centuries passed after Adam’s death yet the effect of the area can’t be wiped out Abraham received the command to build the house again so that it would remain until the Day of Judgment, with the God willing. Effectively, the building of Ka’abah began. Throughout history, Ka’abah was demolished more than once, but it was re-built. It still exists nowadays from the time Abraham constructed it. Then what is the ?hard work that was conducted by the two Nobel prophets

They were the ones who dug the ground deeper for the foundations, and they had to cut stones from far and nearby mountains, then they transported, settled, built and heighted them. That working load normally requires a generation of men effort, but they did built it all by themselves. No one knows how much time it took to build Ka’abah same as we don’t know how much time it took to build Noah’s Ark, but important is that the Noah’s Ark and the Ka’abah were both people refuge and safety in harsh times. In fact, Ka’abah can be considered a fixed Noah’s Ark on the ground. God did not reveal to us the time Ka’abah was build, but He told us about some very dangerous and effective things such as the psychological impartiality, and his prayers (du’a) while building it: ﴾(127) And [mention] when Abraham was raising the foundations of the House and [with him] Ishmael, [saying], “Our Lord, accept [this] from us. Indeed You are the Hearing, the Knowing. (128)

Our Lord, and make us Muslims [in submission] to You and from our descendants a Muslim nation [in submission] to You. And show us our rites and accept our repentance. Indeed, You are the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful. (129) Our Lord, and send among them a messenger from themselves who will recite to them Your verses and teach them the Book and wisdom and purify them. Indeed, You are the Exalted in Might, the Wise”.﴿ (Al-Baqara). The Muslims daily pray to God to accept their work, and to accept them both as Muslims, they know that the hearts are between two fingers of the Rrahman (God). May mercy reach them, asking God to make their descendants Muslims to Him, the Almighty.. They wanted and prayed that the number of existing worshipers and those who perform circumambulation (tawaf) and those who bow and prostrate to be increased. The calls (du’a) of Abraham and Ishmael reveal their believing hearts concerns. During their God’s house building, however, he was occupied by doctrine issues because the house was primarily a doctrine symbol. Then they prayed God to show them the worship method that pleases Him and they asked Him for forgiveness especially that He is the Most Forgiving the Most Merciful. They prayed God to send a messenger for those people to show them about their religion. The prayer was accepted and Mohammed bin Abdullah peace be upon him was send with the message of Islam. The building of the house finished, Abraham wanted a distinctive stone to be a special sign to start the circumambulation (tawaf) around the Ka’abah. Abraham ordered Ishmael to come to him with a special stone with a different color from the other stones of Ka’abah. Ishmael started searching and when he returned he found that Abraham had put the black stone in its place. Ishmael asked his father: “Who brought it to you Father?” Abraham answered: Gabriel peace be upon him, brought it”. When the building of Ka’abah came to its “ end the tawaf of the monotheists and Muslims around it began and Abraham prayed his Lord the supplication (du’a) to make people hearts yearn for that area. If we look at the expression used (hawa) ; passion, we feel how it depicts an irresistible regression toward something. From this supplication (du’a) a deep passion has flourished in the Muslims hearts; the desire to visit the Sacred House (al-Beyt al-Haram) and visit the Grand Mosque (al-Masjid al-Haram). After this holly trip the Muslim feels an increasing thirst to (Ka’abah) that raises a feeling of nostalgia and a desire to come again and again. The mysterious passion erupts its fingernails in the

.-heart, in the predisposition to see the House, and the thirst to the well of Zamzam
