This is the Kaaba. It is located in Mecca and it used to hold 360 idols. After Mohammed started having his visions from Allah and started the spread of Islam, he destroyed all of the idols. It was the birth place of Islam and Muslims pray in the direction of the Kaaba now. Many people come to Mecca every year.
Do you feel that Praying is important to a religion?
Yes, I feel that prayer is very important in religion. This is the way to become connected to Allah. There is a certain feeling when you prostrate in front of your Lord, that you never feel except in that moment.
Praying is very important in a religion. To believe in something is one thing and to actually practice that belief is another. And to me praying is one of the best ways to impose that belief to yourself more than anyone else. And the way i see it praying only makes you closer to God and it will always help you to be more attached to your religion.
Praying is a part and parcel of any religion. The feel of being at peace, being in harmony with your surroundings , the oneness with God and how it affects what you do in a day’s time has a lot to do with praying.
