It occupies a significant importance in the history of Islam. The metaphorical house of God stands as spiritual center with all its glory, brilliance and exaltation.
Every Muslim believer face the Baitullah for worshiping the Allah. The privileged ones get the opportunity to visit it while announcing Labaik Allah Huma Labaik. The great aspiration of the holy visit starts with the sacred state of assuming Ahram. After entering Al- Haram the circumambulations (Tawaf) begins anti clock wise seven times around the Kaaba. They are eager to grab the opportunity and kiss the stone of Jannat ( Hijr-e-Aswad). The offering of Salat at Muqam e Ibrahim is a compulsion after which the Saai starts between Safa and Marwa.
The water of Zamzam is another marvel and wondrously springing water since its origin. Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The best water on the face of the earth is the water of Zamzam. In it is complete nourishment and healing from sickness.” [At-Tabarani]
