    The Kaaba is not an idol. Their prayer in the direction of Mecca (which is where the Kaaba is located) has nothing to do with idol worship. Traditionally the rock material that is located with the Kaaba is said to be a piece of heaven that came crashing to earth. It is believe to be - but since no actually tests have been done to prove these - a meterorite that crashed to the earth. But that belief tends to be held by non-believers.

    Good Luck!!!

    We pray in the house of God(The Kaaba) and do not bow down to the holy Kaaba nor worship it.Idol worship is not practiced in Islam.

    kaaba is just an indicator to bow towards that angle. Muslims worship Allah (GOD)

    for ur kind information nobody stand on his god, where as people stand on kaaba as its only an indicator and not god

    Mohamed got sick and wanted to kill himself when he was visited by an angel. There is only one angel that would make someone want to kill themselves, the angel of light the most beautiful angel there ever was his name is lucifer (the devil). Everything you say lines up with Revelation in the Bible. Christians are waiting for the Antichrist to come he is supposed to claim to be Christ. The devil (the ninth imam) in disguise is to stand next to the Antichrist. Yes the devil has made this evil religion and he will continue to kill many until it has taken over much of the world, even the United States will be ravaged by Islam. But in the end Jesus will come back and conqueror the earth and cast all unbelievers into hell. So make sure you accept Christ as your one and only salvation and repent from your sins (tern from your sin) and ask for the Holy Spirit to live in you

    Kaabah i the point to which all Muslims face to pray, this is a sign of unity among Muslims, you can look for pictures on the internet for the Hajj, 2/3 million people facing the Kaabah is a powerful image.

    we face the Kaaba not bow down to the Kaaba.

    we worship Allah the God of heaven and earth--the Creator of all.

    There is no idol worship in Islam.It is very much prohibited. because unity is emphasized in Islam the kaaba is a landmark which every muslim faces when praying..so we are still one even in praying.

    The Kabah is a Kibla (direction) if you look at a picture of the globe Modern day Saudi Arabia is cituated right in the centre of the world. We face one direction so that we can pray together. In Islam unity is a big thing.

    The Qibla symbolizes the house of ALLAH. Muslims are not worshipping the Qibla they are worshipping what it represents. I'm Muslim.

    Actaully members of islam bow to the black rock. There pagan idol. They pray 5 times a day because the rock has gone deaf. And it is a rock so it is hard headed. They also bow before the leaders of islam. there own special form of holyness.
