Why Do Muslims Visit Mecca?

Answer

Mecca is the most important city to Muslims and they are required to face it when they pray because they believe that the Patriarch Abraham personally built the Kaaba (cube-shaped building), using the Black Stone in its construction. Mecca, the birthplace of Muhammad, is the holiest city of the Islamic faith and non-Muslims are not permitted to enter it.
