Muslims Worship Kaaba :: Misconception about Islam

Muslims Worship Kaaba

Question:

When Islam is against idol worship why do the Muslims worship, and bow down to the Kaaba in their prayer?

Answer:

Kaaba is the Qibla i.e. the direction Muslims face during their prayers. It is important to note that though Muslims face the Kaaba during prayers, they do not worship the Kaaba. Muslims worship and bow to none but Allah. It is mentioned in Surah Baqarah: “We see the turning of thy face (for guidance) to the heavens: now shall We turn thee to a Qiblah that shall please thee. Turn then thy face in the direction of the Sacred Mosque: wherever ye are, turn your faces in that direction.”

1.   Islam believes in fostering unity [Al-Qur’an 2:144] For instance, if Muslims want to offer Salaah (Prayer), it is possible that some may wish to face north, while some may wish to face south. In order to unite Muslims in their worship of the One True God, Muslims, wherever they may be, are asked to face in only one direction i.e. towards the Kaaba. If some Muslims live towards the west of the Kaaba they face the east. Similarly if they live towards the east of the Kaaba they face the west.

2. Kaaba is at the Centre of the World Map The Muslims were the first people to draw the map of the world. They drew the map with the south facing upwards and north downwards. The Kaaba was at the centre. Later, western cartographers drew the map upside down with the north facing upwards and south downwards. Yet, Alhamdullilah the Kaaba is at the centre of the world map.

3. Tawaf around Kaaba for indicating one God When the Muslims go to Masjid-e-Haram in Makkah, they perform tawaf or circumambulation round the Kaaba. This act symbolizes the belief and worship of One God, since, just as every circle has one centre, so also there is only one Allah (swt) worthy of worship.

4.   Hadith of Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) Regarding the black stone, hajr-e-aswad, there is a hadith (tradition), attributed to the illustrious companion of the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh), Umar (may Allah be pleased with him). According to Sahih Bukhari, Volume 2, book of Hajj, chapter 56, H.No. 675. Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “I know that you are a stone and can neither benefit nor harm. Had I not seen the Prophet (pbuh) touching (and kissing) you, I would never have touched (and kissed) you”.

5.   People stood on Kaaba and gave the adhaan At  the  time  of  the  Prophet,  people  even  stood  on  the  Kaaba  and  gave  the ‘adhaan’ or the call to prayer. One may ask those who allege that Muslims worship the Kaaba;  which idol worshipper stands on the idol he worships?

you are full withyour bullshit! Mecca is and never was in the center of the MAP / WORLD. If it is then it should be situated on Equator. You talk about religion and God but you are full with lies.

Arabs wasn’t the one who created the first map. It was Indians. They were the leaders in ship building even the Arabs and the Europeans bought their ship. The best wood for distance going ship grows in India. European trees and the Arabs (Trees in desert?) do not have proper wood for making the ships. Let alone go around the world and study the earth borders. The Indians also invented the compass called Matchendra (The Fish Machine) some 9000yrs ago. which later was smuggled in China along with other inventions and technologies to avoid plundering Nomads of Arabs 3000yrs ago. The Arabs and the European plundered and destroyed many of the Indians technologies and brought to their land. Now they are claiming that they invented them. What a shame.

Regarding Kaaba, It was a Hindu Temple of Kabaleeswaran thus now named as Kabah. According to history, before Islam appeared, Hinduism was the main religion even beyond the Indus river in modern day Pakistan. Arabs particularly during the Islamic uprising,destroyed many temples of Hindus and Buddhist. Kaba being one of them. Even according to Quran, there were many idols which were prayed upon. The black stone of Shiva (Shiva Lingh) is one of them. Now thats is what you call Aswadh. Kabaleeswaran is another name of Shiva. Even your 786 symbol to was derived form the OM symbol of the Hindus.
