Kaaba

The Kaaba or Ka'aba (Arabic: الكعبةal-Kaʿbah IPA: [ælˈkæʕbɐ], "The House of God"), also known as the Sacred House (البيت الحرام Baytu l-Ḥarām) and the Ancient House (البيت العتيق Baytu l-'Atīq), is a cuboid building at the centre of Islam's most sacred mosque, Al-Masjid al-Haram, in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is the most sacred point within this most sacred mosque, making it the most sacred location in Islam. Wherever they are in the world, Muslims are expected to face the Kaaba – i.e. when outside Mecca, to face toward Mecca – when performing salat (prayers).
