One of our Hindu brother who visited our Blog posted a question, which compelled me to create this post. He said,
“Hi!! all muslim friends, can u plz tell me what is inside Kabba. I’m sure u cannot because u always want it to be a secret.He he he he he …… he, but we all Hindus knows it vry well why u all want to keep it as a secret.”
So instead of explaining to him what exists inside the Kaaba, I thought of taking him on a virtual tour inside the Kaaba so that he himself can see what exists within the Kaaba and that is not at all a secret what we have there.
Detail Information of Kaaba
What is Kaaba :
The Kaaba is a building located inside the masjid known as Al-Masjidu’l-Haram in Mecca. The masjid was built around the original Kaaba. The Kaaba is the holiest place in Islam. Muslims throughout the world face the Kaaba during their prayers.
The Kaaba is a large masonry structure roughly the shape of a cube. (The name Kaaba comes from the Arabic word meaning “cube”). It is made of granite from the hills near Mecca. The most current dimensions for the structure are: 15 m high (49′) with sides measuring 10.5 m (34′) by 12 m (39′). It is covered by a black silk cloth decorated with gold-embroidered calligraphy. This cloth is known as the kiswah; it is replaced yearly.
Inside the Kaaba :
|There are three pillars inside|
|There is a small table on the side to put items like perfume and incense burners.|
|There are two lantern-type lamps hanging from a cross beam near the ceiling|
|There are no electric lights inside|
|The interior walls are clad with marble half-way to the roof.|
|The entire floor is of marble except for a small portion which is called “Rukhamat Humra”.|
|Tablets with Qur’anic inscriptions are inset in the marble.|
|The top part of the walls is covered with a green cloth decorated with gold embroidered Qur’anic verses.|
|There are no windows inside|
|There is only one door|
|The space can accommodate about 50 people|
This is inside Kaa’bah.
