And remember when Ibrahim (Abraham) and (his son) Isma’il (Ishmael) were raising the foundations of the House (the Ka’bah at Makkah), (saying), “Our Lord! Accept (this service) from us. Truly! You are the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.”
Our Lord! And make us submissive unto You and of our offspring a nation submissive unto You, and show us our Manasik (all the ceremonies of pilgrimage – Hajj and ‘Umrah), and accept our repentance. Truly, You are the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful.
Let’s look at this situation: we have two of the best of Allah’s creation (Ibrahim and Ismael, upon them be peace) making the most holy structure on the face of the Earth (the Ka’bah) in the most sanctified place on Earth (Makkah)…what is it the thought that is going through their minds?
