The Mahometans assert that the caaba was lowered directly from the celestial paradise exactly at the centre of the earth.
So then, this caaba, according to tradition, is of early origin?
The caaba, or great black stone, preserved by the Mahometans in the Temple of Mecca, had probably a celestial origin.
In the world-famous city of Mecca, two men stood by the arch that leads to the immortal caaba.
He returned to the city, and, from the roof of the caaba, once more assembled the people of Mecca.
Hubal, the chief god of the caaba, disappears; Allah becomes the sole god of the shrine.
Many were rushing about the caaba, and pausing frequently at one corner of the huge structure.
The black stone that had fallen from heaven—the meteorite of the caaba—and its encircling idols, passed totally out of view.
The famous stone in the caaba at Mecca, is probably a stone of meteoric origin.
This decree was written on parchment, and hung up in the caaba, and Mohammed was ultimately forced to flee from the city.
