Lesson - Building the Ka'bah

The Ka'bah is the house of Allah. It was built by prophet Ibrahim (as) and his son Ismael (as), thousands of years ago. Allah had told Ibrahim (as) to build the Ka'bah at this spot so that people will come here and worship Allah.

Ibrahim (as) and Ismael (as) used big stones to build the Ka'bah. The Ka'bah was so big that Ibrahim (as) could not reach the higher part of it to put the stones there. He never had a ladder so he stood on a rock. Allah made the rock rise of the ground so he could reach higher up.

This rock still has Ibrahim's (as) footprints on it and is called the Maqaam-i-Ibrahim.

Story - A Gift from Allah

Ibrahim (as) was a great prophet of Allah. He was given the title of Khalil-Allah which means the friend of Allah. He was commanded to take his newly born son Ismael and wife Hajra to a distant land and leave them there. This was in a barren valley between the Hills of Safa and Marwa in a place that we know as Makkah today.

The family made the long journey together and Ibrahim (as) left them, just as Allah had commanded him. He left them with some dates and water. Ibrahim (as) said farewell and made the long journey back to his first wife Sarah.

The food and water ran out and Hajra was panicking. As baby Ismael began to cry she panicked and ran between the hills of Safa and Marwa in search for water. She was hopeful she might see some travellers and get water or food from them.

After running between the two hills seven times, she returned to baby Ismael. She found that where Ismael was kicking his feet in the sand, a spring had sprung from the ground. The water was sweet and both mother and baby drank from it.

This spring is still there today and is know as Zam zam. When the Hajjis return to their families they bring a special gift of zam zam. When you drink this water think back to baby Ismael and the great favour Allah had given to him. This is the same water that Allah caused to come from the ground many thousands of years ago.

Did You Know

People thought that the Earth was flat and you could fall off the end. Columbus proved this wrong in 1492 when he tried to travel to India by going in the opposite direction. He discovered America .

Muslim Scientists knew this fact long before then and had already calculated the circumference and diameter of the Earth in the 9th century.
