“And proclaim to the people the hajj [pilgrimage]; they will come to you on foot and on every lean camel; they will come from every distant pass that they may witness benefits for themselves and mention the name of Allah on known days over what he has provided for them of [sacrificial] animals. So eat of them and feed the miserable and poor.” (Quran 22:27-28)
For many Muslims, beholding the Ka`bah, especially for the first time, fills hearts with unique feeling no words can describe.
This is exactly what happened to Aisha Rosalie the moment she sighted the Ka`bah in Makkah’s Grand Mosque for the first time.

“I just honestly can’t believe I am here. To be honest I did not film until I finished doing tawaf just waiting for the rest of the group. So now I am just waiting but I honestly can’t look at the Ka`bah without getting so emotional,” emotional Rosali said in the video shared on YouTube.
“You know I just keep thinking like why did Allah choose me like out of all the people in the world why did Allah choose me? Why did Allah choose me to be a Muslim?”

What Is Ka`bah
The Kabah is the sacred House of God situated in the middle of the Holy mosque in the city of Makkah, in Saudi Arabia.
The black cube shaped box is familiar to people of all faiths due to the images that come out of Saudi Arabia every year at pilgrimage time.
The Kabah is the holiest site in Islam, and it is the qiblah, the direction Muslims face when praying. It is called the Ka’bah because of its shape; cube in the Arabic language is ka’b.
Sometimes the Ka’bah is called Al Bait Al Atiq, or the emancipated house, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said that this name was used due to the fact that God has protected the Ka’bah from coming under the control of tyrants.
