In this article, first published in 2017, Al-Arabiya video gives an insight into the holy Ka`bah.
The Ka`bah is the sacred House of God situated in the middle of the Holy Mosque in the city of Makkah, Saudi Arabia.
The Ka’bah is the holiest site in Islam with thousands of people circling and circumambulating the sacred building 24 hours a day.
The Black Stone, an ancient sacred stone, is embedded in the eastern corner of the Ka’bah, one and a half meters above the ground.
Muslims do not worship the ka’bah or its surroundings.
All Muslims around the world face the Ka`aba during daily prayers as their qiblah, the direction Muslims face when praying. Therefore, it serves as a focal point.
This video shows a rare insight into Islam’s holiest mosque.
