The Ka’bah Shareef


1. Who made the kabah first? Was it the angels or hazrat Adam (Alayhis Salaam) and was it uplifted or demolished in the flood in the time of Nuh (Alayhis Salaam)? And when the quraish build the kabah did the prophet saw put the hajar Aswad in?

2 If the kabah was made before hazrat ibraheem (Alayhis Salaam) why is there a special mention of ibraheem (Alayhis Salaam) and his beloved son that made the kabah
