The most sacred place on earth

The Honorable Makkah, the Sacred and Secure valley on earth; Allah has recognized it from among all spots and made it hallowed from the day He made the sky and the earth.

Allah instructed Prophet Ibraheem, may Allah lift up his notice, to manufacture the principal House on earth for Allah to be adored in at this spot and sent down the Black Stone from Paradise as a show indication of the holiness of His Sacred House.

In Makkah unveils the best water to the outside of the earth, the water of Zamzam, which is nourishment that does the trick and provides a solution for the wiped out. It is the water with which the chest and heart of the picked Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah lift up his notice ) was purified so as to set him up sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah commend his notice ) for the vital mission from the Almighty Allah.

Allah has made Makkah interminably consecrated and secure; He Says (what implies): {Have they not seen that We made [Makkah] a sheltered haven, while individuals are being removed (for example executed and abducted) all around them?} [Quran 29:67]

Allah has sent down gifts and kindness upon Makkah, any semblance of which have not been gave to some other spot or individual on earth.

So as to make the issue obvious, in case individuals befuddle what is prudent with what isn't and what is consecrated with what isn't, Allah the Almighty sent down the Jibreel may Allah lift up his notice (the blessed messenger Gabriel) to call attention to the limits of the Sacred City, and Prophet Ibraheem may Allah magnify his notice set signs denoting its limits. Besides, Allah instructed His delivery person, Muhammad sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah lift up his notice ) to remake the structure of the House. This, in reality, is an unmistakable sign and proof showing the sacredness and blessedness of this Secure City.

It was with the order of Allah that Prophet Ibraheem may Allah lift up his notice declared to the individuals the Hajj (journey) and Allah volunteered to pass on the sound of the call all around the globe. From that point, the parade of the respectable prophets, the noble and the individuals who tailed them started to react and approach to the Sacred City. Prophet Moosa (Moses) may Allah lift up his notice the person who was respected by the supernatural occurrence of Allah addressing him, approached, as came Prophet Yoonus (Jonah) may Allah commend his notice the person who was gulped by the whale, just as a large number of different prophets.

Makkah is where the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah lift up his notice ) was conceived and where his sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah commend his notice ) prophethood started. It is the place he sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah magnify his notice ) first got disclosure; on the pinnacle of one of its grandiose mountains lies the well known Cave Hira' in which the Quran was uncovered to him sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah lift up his notice ).

The regarding and holiness of Makkah proceeded with the prophethood of Muhammad sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah lift up his notice ) and he sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah commend his notice ) passed on to us that the Ka'bah was to be the heading which the Muslims should look during their supplications, and that a solitary petition in the Sacred Mosque was to be proportional to a hundred thousand in some other mosque.

He sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah lift up his notice ) guided the individuals to realize that shedding blood (i.e., executing) in Makkah is denied as is felling trees and chasing, and that grabbing lost things from its boulevards is disallowed, except if certain exacting conditions are satisfied.

The last and last Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah magnify his notice ) straightforwardly declared his adoration for Makkah and its grand status in seeing Allah when he sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah lift up his notice ) stated, tending to it: "I swear by Allah! You are the best of the terrains of Allah and you are the most adored land to Allah." [At-Tirmithi and Ahmad]

How might we be able to not laud Makkah when it is a land that Allah Almighty has assigned and singled out with the characteristics of sacredness and of being celebrated greatly? How might we be able to not extol it when Allah has made it holy, amplified the reward of performing great deeds in it, and has made its notice unceasing by referencing it in the Quran?Allah says: (what implies): {That [has been commanded], and whoever praises the consecrated mandates of Allah — it is best for him in seeing his Lord} [Quran 22:30]

Allah additionally says (what implies): {That [is so]. What's more, whoever praises the images [i.e. rites] of Allah - to be sure, it is from the devotion of hearts} [Quran 22: 32]

The sacrosanct mandates and images (rituals) of Allah alludes to the Sacred City, the Sacred House of Allah, and hallowed places inside them, and it is because of their exceptional characteristics that Allah has recognized them from every single other city and grounds.

Regarding and praising the ceremonies of Allah is cultivated by regarding this city, by understanding its status and ideals, and by constantly offering thanks after observing it, just as by holding the matter of venerating Allah inside it in high regard. This is so in light of the fact that the primary House of love ever to be constructed was in Makkah, and it is towards it that the hearts of the Muslims are coordinated from all spots on earth. In what manner can venerate in it not then have such a high status and worth?

Allah made the reward of performing demonstrations of love in it products of that performed somewhere else and made the reward of a solitary petition in the consecrated mosque identical to a hundred thousand supplications in some other mosque. Also, fasting, spending in philanthropy and every single other demonstration of temperance in Makkah have an a lot higher reward than anyplace else on the planet, higher than some other demonstration of love could reach in worth.
