But Ka'bah in Makkah was the "First House of Allah".

2:142 Those of little understanding among people say, “What has turned them from
the
Qiblah
they (Jews) use
d to follow? Say, “
Unto
God belongs
the
East and
the
West. He guides to the straight path whoever wills (to be guided).” [
Qiblah
= Center
of devotion = Symbol of uniform Ideology = Center for the unity of mankind = Deen =
System of Life. The Children of Is
rael have considered Jerusalem as their Center of
devotion but the Jews always believed in a tribal god and, hence, a tribal center. But
God is the
Lord
of all humanity. He makes
no
distinction between Jews and Gentiles.
And the Qur’an invites all mankind
to become one community. His Final Message is
no
t confined to a particular tribe, nation or group of people.
Ka’bah,
the first House of
Mo
no
theism, was erected by Abraham
in Makkah
. It has always been the
Qiblah for
all humanity. 2:213, 3:96, 4:170, 6:91-92, 7:158, 10:19, 12:104, 21:107, 22:49, 34:28, 38:87, 57:25, 114:1]

3:95 Say, “God has declared the truth. Follow, then, the Creed of Abraham, the
upright who shunned all falsehood. He was
no
t of those who choose authorities
besides God.”

3:96 H
e erected the First House (Sanctuary) appointed for all mankind, at the blessed
Bakkah
. It is to serve as a beacon of light for all humanity (in order to regain their lost
unity). [2:125.
Bakkah
came to be k
no
wn as
Makkah
later. In the ancient Arabic
diale
ct
B
was interchangeable
