About that stoning part. It's not actually that people would stone satan. It was done by one of the prophets where he threw a stone at satan when he was there. So it's just a reenactment. And Kaaba is the house of God in the sense that people turn towards it when they pray. Not that God actually lives in it!!

Milan its not! kabba is built by abraham except it was called ibrahim in islam. then the idol worshipper came and started to built their statue all around ka'bah, and the muslims were prohibited from praying in ka'bah. so muslim must take initiative to take ka'bah back! do your reaserch before commenting something bullshit

Muslims do not need anyone's acceptance, they have their faith. 1,6 billion people who believe in Islam and in one God. Millions who go to Hajj, their last words will be " to allah we belong and to him we shall return". Man, I totally respect that.

John Petterson. Wtf have you read then? Anyways, it was commonplace for older men to take a younger wife, like in Britain and everywhere else, it was consistent culture and happens partially today. Child marriages occurred EVERYWHERE due to varied circumstances. Stop being ignorant and dismissive by fabricating the truth

PietreADI shut up you replies to all fucking comments
People should go to their local mosques and shoot the imams and mullahs. They are the biggest perverts and power-hungry men of Islam. They preach to the brainwashed adults and manipulate and rape the children. They are pedophiles reading the quran out loud. They;re inflated egos wont allow them to think they are in the wrong. They call for prayers in the morning and beat they're wives at night and preach evil to the numb-minded followers. There is still time to leave the cult of Islam. Bearded, perverted old men

First of all, you believe in God and Muhammad (pbuh) as the last messenger of God? If you do, then recite the Shahadah and open your heart in the belief of God. Ps, contact an imam( Islamic priest) or scholar for guidance and do plenty of research to prepare yourself so you don't go head first unknowingly into this religion because, like all religions, you need devotion, responsibility, intention and effort.
