The First Qibla: The Kaaba (Makkah) is the center of heartfelt love for Allah, the Messenger of Allah, and Muslims. It is the first house built for the worship of Allah on earth. That is why the reward here is many times more than in other places. One prayer here has the status of one lakh prayers.
From the very first day, Allah declared it and the nearby area to be sacred. Everything in it enjoys peace and order, even the trees and other vegetation here cannot be cut. The birds and animals here cannot be scared away. Makkah has been blessed with majesty, sanctity, and safety all thanks to the Kaaba.
