Q: What does Beit Al-Haram mean?

We, as Muslims, might build houses for Allah in our cities, towns and neighborhood, even for tribes and sects and nationalities. We try to preserve and maintain in our mosques all the boundaries that separate us, to make us live in our closed and narrow circles.

In contrast, the Kaaba (the Sacred House) is a place of worship for all people regardless of cooler and race.

It is an international house of Allah, which every Muslim feels that it is house and symbol. That is why Allah has asked us to And from whatsoever place you come forth, turn your face towards the Sacred Mosque; and not to anything else, so that it would act as a basis for our unity internationalism and humanitarianism.
