    Default Makkah: Historic Past and Present

    http://www.fiqhenglish.com/elm/Hajj_...lgrimage).aspx
    the name Makkah has been used as Bakkah in the statement of Allah, the Most High: [Verily, the first house of worship appointed for mankind was that of Bakkah (Makkah), full of blessing and guidance for theAlameen (mankind and the jinn).] (al ‘Imran: 96)

    The history of Makkah can be traced back to the nineteenth century B.C. during the time of our leaders, Ibraheem and Isma’eel (peace and blessings of Allah be upon them), as they were the first to inhabit the place. Allah, the Most High, reporting Ibraheem’s speech, said: [Our Lord! I have made some of my offspring to dwell in an uncultivable valley by your Sacred House (the Ka’bah at Makkah) in order- Our Lord!- that they may perform as-Ṣalāt; so fill some hearts among men with love towards them, and provide them with fruits so that they may give thanks.] (Ibraheem: 37).

    Default Makkah: Historic Past and Present

    Moreover, the name Makkah has been used as Bakkah in the statement of Allah, the Most High: [Verily, the first house of worship appointed for mankind was that of Bakkah (Makkah), full of blessing and guidance for the ‘Alameen (mankind and the jinn).] (al ‘Imran: 96)


    The history of Makkah can be traced back to the nineteenth century B.C. during the time of our leaders, Ibraheem and Isma’eel (peace and blessings of Allah be upon them), as they were the first to inhabit the place.


    Allah, the Most High, reporting Ibraheem’s speech, said: [Our Lord! I have made some of my offspring to dwell in an uncultivable valley by your Sacred House (the Ka’bah at Makkah in order- Our Lord!- that they may perform as-Ṣalāt; so fill some hearts among men with love towards them, and provide them with fruits so that they may give thanks.] (Ibraheem: 37).


    As a result of Ibraheem’s prayer (peace be upon him), Zam-zam (blessed water) gushed from below Isma’eel’s feet when the food and water supplies with his mother, Hajar, had become completey depleted.


    Since then, different tribes began to arrive at the location of the water and life began flowing into Makkah.
    The tribes began to increase in number as they arrived one after the other, and eventually, the management of the state of affairs of Makkah became that of the Quraish. The clan of Quraish assumed authority of Makkah until the emergence of Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) who exerted the greatest influence in changing the lifestyle of the venerated Makkah and the entire world.
