!e Holy Qur’an And We did raise among every people a Messenger, preaching: ‘Worship Allah and shun the Evil One.’ Then among them were some whom Allah guided and among them were some who became deserving of ruin. So travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who treated the Prophets as liars! [Al-Nahl Chapter 16: Verse 37]
!e Ha"# The Holy Prophet (saw) said: “There is none who invites (others) towards guidance, except that for him shall be the rewards of all those who follow him - this shall not in the slightest cause a reduction in their own rewards. (Sahih Muslim)
W&tings of ' Prom(ed Messiah
“If it were in my power, I would have desired to go from door to door like beggars and propagate the True Religion of Allah and thereby rescue humanity from polytheism (Shirk) and disbelief (Kufr). If Allah would grant me the knowledge of the English language, I would personally embark on preaching (Tabligh) expeditions and spend my entire life in this pursuit even if I were to die in this cause.”
Messa% from Khalifatul Masih (ru) “You are the backbone of the future generations of Ahmadis in this country, and if you wake up to your responsibilities, as I have repeatedly expected of you and told you in so many words. Then Insha’Allah a revolution will begin here from this soil, which is spread to all the western countries” [Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih IV ru]
!e Ka’ba The small, cubed building known as the Ka’ba [Ka’bah] may not rival skyscrapers in height or mansions in width, but its impact on history and human beings is unmatched. The Ka’ba is the building towards which Muslims face five times a day, everyday, in prayer. This has been the case since the time of the Holy Prophet (saw) over 1400 years ago.
!e size of ' Ka’ba The current height of the Ka’ba is 39 feet, 6 inches, with the total size coming to 627 square feet. The inside room of the Ka’ba is 13 x 9 meters. The Ka’ba’s walls are one metre wide. The floor inside is 2.2 meters higher than the place where people perform Tawaf. The ceiling and roof are two levels made out of wood. They were reconstructed with teak, which is capped with stainless steel. The walls are all made of stone. The stones inside are unpolished, while the ones outside are polished.
O#er names of ' Ka’ba Literally, Ka’ba in Arabic means a high place with respect and prestige. The word Ka’ba may also be a derivative of a word, meaning cube. Some of these other names include: Bait ul Ateeq, which, according to one meaning, means, the earliest and most ancient. According to the second meaning, it means independent and liberating. Both meanings could be taken.
!e H(tory of ' Ka’ba Scholars and historians say that the Ka’ba has been reconstructed between five to 12 times. Hadhrat Adam (as) did the very first construction of the Ka’ba. Allah says in the Holy Qur’an that this was the first house that was built for humanity to worship Allah. After this, Hadhrat Ibrahim (as) and Hadhrat Ismail (as) rebuilt the Ka’ba. The measurements of the Ka’ba’s Ibrahimic foundations are as follows: - The eastern wall was 48 feet and 6 inches - The Hateem sidewall was 33 feet - The side between the black stone and Yemeni cover was 30 feet - The western side was 46.5 feet.
The Holy Prophet (saw) participated in one of its reconstructions before he became a Prophet. After a flash flood, the Ka’ba was damaged and its walls cracked. It needed rebuilding. This responsibility was divided among the Quraish’s four tribes. Hadhrat Muhammad (saw) helped with this reconstruction. Once the wall was erected, it was time to place the Black Stone (Hijar ul Aswad) on the eastern wall of the Ka’ba.
!e Black Stone - Hijar ul Aswad Arguments erupted about who would have the honor of putting the Black Stone in its place. A fight was about to break out over the issue, when Abu Umayyah, Makkah’s oldest man, proposed that the first man to enter the gate of the mosque the following morning would decide the matter. That man happened to be the Holy Prophet (saw). The Makkans were ecstatic. “This is th trustworthy one (Al-Ameen),” they shouted in a chorus. “This is Muhammad”. He came to them and they asked him to decide on the matter. He agreed. Prophet Muhammad (saw) proposed a solution that all agreed to putting the Black Stone on a cloak, the elders of each of he clans held on to one edge of the cloak and carried the stone to its place. The Prophet then picked up the stone and placed it on the wall of the Ka’ba.
