The central shrine at Mekka was the Pagans Kaaba (called House of Allah), a cube like stone structure which still stands though many times rebuilt. Imbedded in one corner is the black stone, probably a meteorite, the kissing of which is now an essential part of the Muslims pilgrimage.
It is the historical fact that the Kaaba, the sacred shrine which contains the Black Stone, in Mecca was used for pagan idol worship before Islam and even called the House of Allah at that time. The name of the God whom the Arabs worshiped was the god of pantheon—Ali-ilah the god, the supreme, the predeterminer of everybody life or destiny— the chief God Allah
