Kaaba Sentences from Popular Quotes and Books

1. "The word, 'cube', comes directly from the Arabic, Kaaba."
- Lesley Hazleton, The First Muslim: The Story of Muhammad

2. "[...] si la Kaaba est le cœur de l’homme, les idoles qui la peuplaient représentent les passions qui obsèdent le cœur et l’empêchent de se souvenir de Dieu. Dès lors, la destruction des idoles [par le prophète] – et par extension le rejet de toute image susceptible de devenir une idole – est pour l’Islam la parabole la plus évidente de la « seule chose nécessaire », à savoir la purification du cœur en vue du tawhîd, du témoignage ou de la conscience qu’« il n’y a pas de divinité hormis Dieu »"

3. "Balanced atop the highest spire of the Salt Lake Temple, gleaming in the Utah sun, a statue of the angel Moroni stands watch over downtown Salt Lake City with his golden trumpet raised. This massive granite edifice is the spiritual and temporal nexus of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), which presents itself as the world's only true religion. Temple Square is to Mormons what the Vatican is to Catholics, or the Kaaba in Mecca is to Muslims. At last count there were more than eleven million Saints the world over, and Mormonism is the fastest-growing faith in the Western Hemisphere. At present in the United States there are more Mormons than Presbyterians or Episcopalians. On the planet as a whole, there are now more Mormons than Jews. Mormonism is considered in some sober academic circles to be well on its way to becoming a major world religion--the first such faith to emerge since Islam."

4. "fact is that moderate Islamism is a myth. There are, to be sure, more than a billion moderate Muslims—people who pray five times a day or not, fast during Ramadan or not, perhaps entertain harmless superstitions about pork, the devil, or the conduct of the birds vis-à-vis the Kaaba, or indeed seek by painstaking study of the Quran and the hadith to reconcile the basic values of their religion with modern life and the discoveries of science. But Islamism is a political ideology that takes a literal, fundamentalist interpretation of the Quran as a master plan for society: Islamic law, the segregation of the sexes, the subjugation of women, the submission of the masses to clerical authority. You are either an Islamist or you are not, in the same way that you cannot be a little bit pregnant."

5. " sauraient rendre compte, et il serait absurde de le leur demander (1). (1) Titus Burckhardt, ayant lu ces lignes, nous a communiqué au sujet du cycle Abraham-Mohammed les réflexions suivantes : « Il est significatif que la langue arabe soit la plus archaïque de toutes les langues sémitiques vivantes : son phonétisme conserve, à un son près, tous les sons indiqués par les plus anciens alphabètes sémitiques, et sa morphologie se retrouve dans le célèbre code de Hammourabi, qui est à peu près contemporain d'Abraham. » - « En fait, la Mecque avec la Kaaba construite par Abraham et Ismaël, est la ville sacrée oubliée, - oubliée à la fois par le Judaïsme, qui ignore le rôle prophétique d'Ismaël, et par le Chrisianisme, qui a hérité le même point de vue. Le sanctuaire de la Mecque, lequel est au Prophète ce que le Temple de Jérusalem est au Christ, - en un certain sens tout au moins, - est comme la « pierre rejetée par les bâtisseurs » et qui devient la pierre d'angle. Cette oublie du sanctuaire"

6. " those who worshipped them. The moment Muhammad recited these newly revealed verses in the Kaaba precinct, the response was overwhelmingly positive. When they heard them, people rejoiced and were delighted, ibn-Ishaq"

7. " hence to any personalist mysticism. To express ourselves in geometrical terms, we could say that a point which seeks to be unique, and which thus becomes an absolute center, appears to Islam—in art as in theology—as a usurpation of the divine absoluteness and therefore as an association (shirk); there is only one single center, God, whence the prohibition against centralizing images, especially statues; even the Prophet, the human center of the tradition, has no right to a Christic uniqueness and is decentralized by the series of other Prophets; the same is true of Islam—or the Koran—which is similarly integrated in a universal fabric and a cosmic rhythm, having been preceded by other religions—or other Books—which it merely restores. The Kaaba, center of the Muslim world, becomes space as soon as one is inside the building: the ritual direction of prayer is then projected toward the four cardinal points. If Christianity is like a central fire, Islam on the contrary resembles a blanket of"
