Why is it that Ramadan seems to have such a profound impact on our spirituality, particularly given the physical hardships that it entails? The most distinct feature of Ramadan is that it requires able Muslims to fast the entire month. The fact that this distinct feature correlates with the auspiciousness of the month is perhaps testament to how important and beneficial fasting is.
Is Kaaba an idol? Do Muslims worship Kaaba or the ‘black stone’? If not then, why do they pray or prostrate in the direction of Ka’aba in Makkah or Mecca (Saudi Arabia)? What is significance of Kaaba in Islam? Why do some Muslims touch or kiss the black stone in the Kaa’ba when they perform the pilgrimage? These are the questions raised by most of the non-Muslims.
