Another very old picture of the Kaaba. Probably during the time of Prophet Muhammed (pbuh), it looked similar. By looking at it, one can also surmise how it looked at the time of Prophets Abraham and his son, Ishmael (peace be on them) who built it more than 4,000 years ago. Beautiful !! All praise be to Allah, The Almighty.

☪ The Kaaba or Ka'aba is a cuboid building at the center of Islam's most sacred mosque, Al-Masjid al-Haram, in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is the most sacred site in Islam. Wherever they are in the world, Muslims are expected to face the Kaaba – i.e. when outside Mecca, to face toward Mecca – when performing salat (prayer). From any point in the world, the direction facing the Kaaba is called the qibla.

The entrance to Gar Hira Hira or the Cave of Hira is a cave about 2 miles from Mecca, on the mountain named Jabal Al-Nūr in the Hejaz region of present day Saudi Arabia. It is notable for being the location where Muslims believe Muhammad received his first revelations from God (Allah) through the angel Jibreel, also known as the angel Gabriel to Christians.
