Muslims must make at least one trip to the Kaaba in their lifetime. Back in Abraham's time, it was the first Mosque on earth. Abraham was the person who built the Kaaba.
☪ 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.
