Where is the Kabah. It is linking to umrah dua After Ismaa’eel’s mother had died, Ibraaheem came after Ismaa’eel’s marriage in order to see his family that he had left before. Then Ibraaheem came and saw Ismaa’eel under a tree near Zamzam, sharpening his arrows. When he saw Ibraaheem, he stood up to welcome him and they greeted one another as a father greets his son or a son greets his father. Ibraaheem said,
‘O Ismaa’eel, Allaah has given me an order.’ Ismaa’eel said: ‘Do what your Lord has ordered you to do.’ Ibraaheem asked, ‘Will
you help me?’ Ismaa’eel said, ‘I will help you.’ Ibraaheem said, ‘Allaah has ordered me to build a house here,’ pointing to a
hillock higher than the land surrounding it.”
The Baytullah or Ka’bah is the building towards which Muslims face five times a day, everyday, in prayer, and this since over 1400 years ago. Literally, Ka’bah in Arabic means a high place with respect and prestige. The word Ka’bah may also be derivative of a word meaning a cube, but it is less likely since the Ka’bah at the time of Prophet Ibraaheem (as) and until the time of Prophet Muhammad (saas) was not cubic, but rectangular.
The other names of the Kabah, are Bait ul Ateeq – which means, according to one meaning, the earliest and ancient. According to the
second meaning, independent and liberating. Another name is Bait ul Haram – the honorable house. It also has other names.
Tradition goes that the Kaaba was ordained by Allah to be built in the shape of the House in Heaven called Baitul Ma’amoor. Allah in
his infinite Mercy ordained a similar place on earth and Prophet Adam (as) was the first to build this place.
