Makkah is the place which captures the hearts of a billion Moslems all over the globe. It is the place where God's will was revealed to Mohammed, (peace be upon him), and it is now the location of the Holy Mosque and the sacred Ka'abah. It is also the destination of millions of pilgrims and visitors and the holiest spot on earth.
God has honoured it in His Holy Book, in which it is given eleven different names, including: Makkah, Bakkah, AL-Balad AL-Aamin, AL-Balad AL-Ameen, AL-Haram AL-Aamin and Um-AL-Qura. God also refers to Makkah in several verses of the Holy Koran using other names, and has sworn on its name, thus giving it a unique status unrivalled by any other city in the world.
It was in and around Makkah that the early Moslems launched their"Jihad" (Holy Struggle) against polytheism, heresy and idolatry. It was here that God gave victory to His Prophet and his fellow-believers when they triumphantly entered Makkah in the 8th year after Hijra (630 AD), ending the state of polytheism and exalting the name of Allah, the one and only God. The idols were destroyed, God's House was purified and Makkah became a secure and sacred city. Moslems all over the world turn their faces in prayer five times a day towards the Ka'abah in Makkah and begin and end their pilgrims with a "tawaf" (circumambulation) of it.
The tale of the building of Makkah, the Holy Mosque and the Ka'abah is well known, as are the events which took place in the city following the era of Abraham and Ishmael.
It was also the will of God that the Holy Ka'abah be situated in Makkah. This divine will has affected the building and growth of the city as it is today.
The first Sura of the Holy Koran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) on the outskirts of Makkah. These revelations to the Prophet continued later, and some verses of the Holy Koran are known as Makki, because they were revealed in Makkah whilst others were called Madani because they were revealed in Madinah.
