The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

The Kaba, which was first built by Adam (PBUH), was heavily damaged in the long course of time and was almost demolished. The prophet Abraham (PBUH) received an order from Allah Almighty to rebuild this holy structure and immediately set to work with his son Ismael.

Having completed to build Kaba, they opened their hands in supplication to Allah Almighty and prayed:

"Our Lord! Send a Messenger from our progeny to the Muslim Ummah so that he can read to them your ayahs (verses), teach them your books and their laws, and cleanse them from their sins!" (Surah al-Baqara, 129)

Thus, Allah Almighty did not leave this sincere supplication unanswered and sent a descendant of Ismael, the prophet Muhammad (pbuh), the chief of the prophets to the world. The Pride of the Universe (pbuh) proclaimed this truth as,

I am the supplication of my forefather Abraham (pbuh).” (Ibn Hisham, Sira: 1/175; Tabari, Tarikh: 2/128.)
