WHAT DOES CAABA MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Caaba

Kaaba

The Kaaba or Ka'aba, also known as the Sacred House and the Ancient House, 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. Al-Masjid al-Haram was built around the Kaaba. From any point in the world, the direction facing the Kaaba is called the Qibla. As long as they are able to do so, one of the Five Pillars of Islam requires every Muslim to perform the Hajj pilgrimage at least once in his or her lifetime. Multiple parts of the Hajj require pilgrims to make Tawaf, the circumambulation seven times around the Kaaba in a counter-clockwise direction. This circumambulation is also performed by pilgrims during the Umrah. However, the most interesting times are during the Hajj, when millions of pilgrims gather to circle the building on the same day.
