What is the Ka'ba?

The Ka'ba is the place of worship which Allah commanded Abraham and Ishmael to build over four thousand years ago. The building was constructed of stone on what many believe was the original site of a sanctuary established by Adam. Allah commanded Abraham to summon all mankind to visit this place, and when pilgrims go there today they say 'At thy service,O Lord', in response to Abraham's summons.
