Kaba was originally built for Adam and Eve as a place for worshiping God when they were expelled from Paradise and came to Earth. It was lifted back to heavens during the big flood in time of Noah, and then it was rebuilt again by Prophet Abraham. Today, it is still standing, unchanged, and will remain in the same place until the end of time. This temple hides a heavenly secret that attracts the hearts of all the people, being a subject of worship throughout all times and religions, including the pagans before the times of Prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h. Today, all the Muslims of the world turn their faces towards it during daily prayers. In every moment, 24/7, there are hundreds of thousands of people visiting, circling around it and praying. Every year, in time of Hajj ceremony, between 5 and 6 million of people visit it as the central pilgrimage destination.
