"I am sure many people did not know that every prophet and messenger sent by God had made the pilgrimage to Makkah, that the prophets migrated to Makkah with their followers, that more than 70 of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) are buried on the plains of Mina just outside Makkah with some buried close to the Kaaba, and that birds living in the vicinity of the Kaaba never fly over the building but fly around it in the same direction as Muslims performing tawaf (circumambulation) in a sign of reverence and respect to the House of God. Makkah is the center of the universe and its time should be the internationally accredited time instead of Greenwich which was imposed on the world by Britain. The direction of tawaf has to do with the movement of stars. The footprint of Prophet Ibrahim near the Holy Kaaba when he and his son Ismail were rebuilding it as commanded by God stands as a lasting miracle. Zamzam water has been gushing from the same well for thousands of years without a change of taste or color."
