Not quite accurate.
According to Pagan Arab customs and Islamic customs, this building, The Ka'bah, was built by the Patriarch Abraham and his first son Ishmael, as a
dedication to Allah/Yahweh/God, i.e., the first church ever built in the name of Monotheism.
Many years after the death of Ishmael, the Pagan Arabs converted this House of God into a shrine housing 360 Idol Statues of Pagan gods and deities.
Prophet Muhammad destroyed and removed every idol statue, and rededicated the Ka'bah to Allah/Yahweh/God. Muslims do not worship the Ka'bah, the
black stone, or anything inside. They treat Ka'bah as any Jew would treat the Western Wall, or and Christian would treat the Church of the
The Ka'bah looks as any other brick building, however, there is a black cloth draped over the entire building. The black stone found in the wall of
the Ka'bah is believed to be a meteor, and Islamic customs make no significant mention of this rock at all, except the fact that Muhammad kissed it.
Also, during a reconstruction/renovation of the Ka'bah, the black stone was put in place equally by the head of all the tribes of the Quraish.
If there was something mystical about the black stone, it would be a suprise to all Muslims and Arabs alike.
