'''The Ka'aba''' (الكعبة) is the holiest shrine in [[Islam]] and is the first worship place  [[List of Worship Places Converted or Destroyed by Muslims|converted by Muslims]] into a mosque. Muslim believe [[Ibrahim|Abraham]] built it when he "binded [[Isma'il|Ishmael]]", stolen from the Biblical Binding of Isaac on the Jewish Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Muslims later stole The Temple Mount and built The Al-Aqsa Mosque and The Dome of The Rock even though Jerusalem isn't mentioned in The [[Qur'an]]. They did it for [[Islam and Propaganda|propaganda]] purposes so the local Arab rulers could compete with the Arabs in Arabia for pilgrims.

Muslims believe the [[Black Stone|black stone]] in The Ka'aba was a gift from [[Allah]] to Adam. The black stone is a meteorite. Prior to Islam, it was the center of Pre-Islamic Arabian [[Paganism|pagan]] [[Hubal|lunar]] worship. The word ''yoni'' is the Sanskrit word for “divine passage”, “place of birth”, “womb” (more as nature as a womb and cradle of all creations) or “sacred temple” (cf. lila). The word also has a wider meaning in both profane and spiritual contexts, covering a range of meanings of “place of birth, source, origin, spring, fountain, place of rest, repository, receptacle, seat, abode, home, lair, nest, stable” (Monier-Williams).
