Where was Najd located at the time of the Prophet (peace be upon him)? The reason I am asking this is because of the hadîth wherein the Prophet was asked about Najd and said: "The two horns of the devil will appear from there, as well as instability, corruption, and strife." [Sahîh al-Bukharî and Sahîh Muslim]

What does it mean to be Semitic? Why are Arabs described as Semitic? Is it because they are descended from Shem, the son of Noah (peace be upon him)?

I have been taught that the Ka`bah in Mecca – al-Masjid al-Harâm – is the true qiblah. Kindly help me to understand why the Prophets like Jesus, Jacob, and Solomon (peace be upon them) did not pray towards the Ka`bah?



Last Modified:  23 Aug 2011 06:45  GMT

read that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “O `A’ishah! Were your people not close to the Pre-Islamic times of ignorance, I would have had the Ka`bah demolished and would have included in it the portion which had been left, and would have made it at a level with the ground and would have made two doors in it, one towards the east and the other towards the west, and then by doing this it would have been built on the foundations laid by Abraham.” Is it true that the Ka`bah is not on it ...

Did the Ka’bak exist before Islam? Who first built the Ka’bah? Is it the same building that it has always been since ancient times?
