Why Mecca is considered a holy place for Muslims?

Post by mirsha2012 on Wed May 15, 2013 8:51 pm


Mecca, the city is considered a holy place for Muslims. Kaaba (or Caaba), a small stone building that contains the Black Stone, which Muslims believe was sent from heaven by Allah (God) and considered Holy. Now why does Muslims oppose idol worship when they consider material things like city and stone are holy or godly? Hindus also believe in same thing what Muslims believe in. Here is the science behind the idol worship. Before the idol worship starts, the worshiper invite's God's energy to reside in the idol during prana prathista (literally means installing the life) ritual. The idol is transformed to divinity then. Idol is actually an interface to communicate with God's energy. There are many incidents that has happened in the history where the idol has reacted to devotee's devotion. Vedas not only talk about nirguna (formless attributes of God) at many places but also talks in terms of saguna, the supreme divine form with attributes. Agama which explains the prescribes method to do icon worship also explain that the God is formless and is of the nature of pure existence, consciousness and bliss sat-chit-ananda. So it is not opposing what Vedas tell.

Hajj starts on the 25th of November this yr and runs through the 30th
so mum and dad should be okay as long as they are there before the 25th
its better for them to rest n do their umra first, get settled and be ready
