The Ka’aba is the most sacred place for every Muslim of the world. Every year, millions of Muslims travel to Makkah for Hajj. They do tawaf – an obligatory part of Hajj. As it is the holiest place in the world according to Islam, non-Muslims are forbidden from entering and every Muslim one this planet wishes to travel there at least once.
The Ka’aba is built around a sacred black stone, a meteorite that Muslims believe was placed by Hazrat Ibrahim and Hazrat Ismail. It is embedded in the eastern corner of the Kaaba. Hazrat Muhammad re-dedicated the site and reconstructed it after Conquest of Makkah.
