Prayer of Abraham and the Sacred Pilgrimage - Hajj

In the name of Loving God

And when Abraham said: My Lord! make this city
[^1] secure, and save me and my sons from worshipping idols: My Lord! they have led many men astray; so whoever follow me, he is of me; and whoever disobey me, Thou surely art Forgiving, Merciful:

O our Lord! I have settled a part of my offspring in a valley unproductive
of fruit [^2] near Thy Sacred House [^3], our Lord! that they may keep up prayer;

therefore make the hearts of some people yearn towards them
[^4] and provide them with fruits, haply they may be grateful: O our Lord! Thou knowest what we hide and what we manifest, and nothing in the earth nor any thing in heaven is hidden from God;

Praise be to God Who has given me in old age Ishamel and Isaac; surely my Lord is the hearer of prayer: My Lord! make me keep up prayer and from my offspring too, O our Lord, and accept my prayer. O our Lord! grant protection to me and my parents and the believers on the day when the reckoning shall come to pass. [The Quran: 14:35-41]

^ Notes
[1] This is the city of Mecca (also writen Makkah), located now in Saudi Arabia.

[2] The land as that day and still today is barren, desert area. The offsprings mentioned are the bloodline of Abrahama from his son Ishmael and his discendants. Both according to Arab tradition and Bible, Ishmael's descendants were settled in Arabia.

[3] This sacred house is the house that Abraham erected with his son for the purpose of worshiping of God, the One. Abraham in all three monotheistic religion, Judaism, Christianity and Islam is given the credit as the father of monotheism. And the beginning of this journey started with the sacred house, called Kaba. As an ancient architecture it was very simple and made like a cube. Hence the name Kaba, which simply means 'cube'. Literally also means, a high place with respect and prestige.

[4] Father Abraham's prayers were heard and accepted by God indeed. From hundreds of years, millions of peoples' heart are made to yearn towards the house, Kaba where people go for sacred pilgrimage. At this moment about 3 million people are gathering there to answer the call of the their heart's yearning & longing to visit the sacred house.
