The hub of all Muslims around the world. All Muslims direct towards this black block type building for prayers where ever they are. This black block building is pieces of rock put up more than 1,400+ years ago. The black color is because of special cloth stitched with Gold thread is placed on top of it.
The people you will watch in the short video are doing Tawaf / circumambulation around it. Mandatory 7 round are to be made in anti clockwise .
One interesting thing I will tell you this circumambulation / Tawaf have only stopped as to my knowledge 3 to 5 times or might be couple of more times from Prophet Ibrahim (Peace Be Upon Him) times till now which is roughly you can say around way before than Christ. When exactly no one knows the exact time.
Since that time till now this Tawaf / circumambulation is going non stop . It is amazing!
Only at 5 prayer’s time the Tawaf / circumambulation stops which is max 5 – 7 minutes. Else whether it’s storm or even floods this Tawaf / circumambulation has never stop, not even if it’s war.
Thought to share the video, with you all who didn’t know.
