Another very old picture of the Kaaba. Probably during the time of Prophet Muhammed (pbuh), it looked similar. By looking at it, one can also surmise how it looked at the time of Prophets Abraham and his son, Ishmael (peace be on them) who built it more than 4,000 years ago. Beautiful !! All praise be to Allah, The Almighty.
