Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

DEAR BROTHER ,

I WOULD LIKE TO CLARIFY THAT WHAT IS EXACTLY KAABA,IS IT THE PLACE OF ALMIHTY ALLAH. CAN U EXPLAIN TO ME WHAT IS IT EXACTLY 

 

(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

 

Answer:

 

What is the Kaaba

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 97:

97 Allah made the Kaaba The Sacred House, an asylum of security for mankind as also the Sacred Months, the animals for offerings, and the garlands that mark them: that ye may know that Allah hath Knowledge of what is in the heavens and on earth, and that Allah is well acquainted with all things.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imran verses 96-97:

96 The First House (of worship) appointed for mankind was that at Bakka (Makkah), full of Blessing and of Guidance for all kinds of beings:

97 In it are Signs manifest; (for example) the Station of Abraham; whoever enters it (the precincts of the Sacred House) attains security; pilgrimage thereto is a duty men owe to Allah for those who can afford the journey; but if any deny faith, Allah stands not in need of any of his creatures!


 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 22 Surah Hajj verses 26-30:

26 Behold! We gave the site to Abraham of the (Sacred) House (saying): "Associate not any thing (in worship) with Me; and sanctify My House for those who compass it round, or stand up, or bow, or prostrate themselves (therein in prayer).

27 "And proclaim the Pilgrimage among men: they will come to thee on foot and (mounted) on every kind of camel lean on account of journeys through deep and distant mountain highways;

28 "That they may witness the benefits (provided) for them and celebrate the name of Allah through the days appointed over the cattle which He has provided for them (for sacrifice): then eat ye thereof and feed the distressed ones in want.

29 "Then let them complete the rites prescribed for them, perform their vows, and (again) circumambulate the Ancient House."

30 Such (is the Pilgrimage): whoever honors the Sacred Rites of Allah for him it is good in the sight of his Lord.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 125:

125 Remember We made the (Sacred) House (in Makkah) a place of assembly for men and a place of safety; and take ye the Station of Abraham as a place of prayer; and We covenanted with Abraham and Isma`il that they should sanctify My House, for those who compass it round, or use it as a retreat, or bow, or prostrate themselves (therein in prayer).

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 5 Surah Maidah verse 2 (part):

2 O ye who believe! Violate not the sanctity of the Symbols of Allah!

 

Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, the Kaaba is amongst the chosen and appointed Shaayir (Signs or Symbols) of Allah Subhanah, the absolute First House appointed by Allah for mankind to worship the One and Only Lord, and a Decreed Place of Sanctity, Safety, Assembly and a Sanctuary.

 

Your Question: IS IT THE PLACE OF ALMIHTY ALLAH.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 24 Surah Nur verses 35-36:

35 Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The parable of His Light is as if there were a niche and within it a lamp: the lamp enclosed in glass: the glass as it were a brilliant star: lit from a blessed tree of olives, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil is well-nigh luminous though fire scarce touched it: Light upon Light! Allah doth guide whom He Wills to His Light. Allah doth set forth parables for men: and Allah doth know all things.

36 (Lit is such a Light) in Houses which Allah hath permitted to be raised to honor (the Mosques); for the celebration in them of His Name: in them is He glorified in the mornings and in the evenings!

 

Although everything in the heavens and the earth and whatever is between it belongs to none except Allah Subhanah, those places or houses which are built and raised to honor only for the Celebration, Praise, Glorification, and Remembrance of none but Allah Subhanah; all such places (or masjids) are the appointed Houses of Allah Subhanah.

 

The Arabic word bayt, although in colloquial terms means where one stays, has many meanings. For example the state treasury is known as the bayt-ul-maal or literally the house where treasury is gathered or stored. Similarly, every such place which has been erected or dedicated for the sole purpose of the Remembrance of Allah, is known as the Bayt-Allah or the House of Allah. The Sacred Precincts of the Holy Mosque in Makkah is the first and the holiest of all the dedicated Houses of Allah Subhanah on this earth.

 

The Majesty and Omnipresence of the Lord All-Mighty is such that He cannot be restricted to a place or a house, nor does it suit His Majesty and His Magnificence to be restricted to anything! The Holy Kaaba and the surrounding Sacred Precincts of the Holy Mosque in Makkah is a dedicated and honored Sign and Symbol of Allah, raised as the first centre of worship and for the sole purpose of the Remembrance, Celebration, Praise and Glorification of The Lord Most High; and is thus is known as and called Al-Bayt-Allah or The House of Allah.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

Burhan
