AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Coinciding with approaching Hajj, the series of photos and contents "from the Masjid al-Haram (#من_المسجد_الحرام) "about Prophet Abraham (AS), who is the founder of this passionate ritual, is presented to ABNA readers:
Here the verses begin with the construction of KAABEH which is the most Sacred Mosque of Muslims, and stands in the city of Mecca.
According to Islamic traditions, the Sacred Mosque was at first built by ADAM, and it was ruined in the FLOOD. Then Allah showed its foundations to ABRAHAM, and he, with the help of his son Ishmael, raised up the walls and reconstructed the first Mosque of Mankind in which the only one God of universe, (Allah) should have been worshipped. So when the Sacred house was completed, Allah said to Abraham:ِ
``....And do not associate with me anything, and cleanse my house for those who encompass, and for those who stand in prayer, or who bow down and prostrate themselves.''
When the house was built and cleansed all round, and made ready for worship; Abraham was ordered to proclaim the pilgrimage among all people, to come there from far and near, either on foot or mounted.
