Divine Blessings of the Holy Ka’bah

Arzish talks briefly about what does facing Ka’bah stands for. We all face the Holy Ka’bah while saying our ritual or optional prayers. Firstly, it is the command of Allah: “…turn your faces towards the Sacred Mosque”(2:144). Secondly, it is the first House of God: “Certainly the first house appointed for mankind is the one at Bakkah, blessed and a guidance for the nations” (3:96).

When we say that is the House of Allah, it does not mean that Allah lives there and that is why we face it. This has been clearly negated by the Qur’anic revelation: “ So let them worship or serve the Lord of this house” and not the House itself.
