If a video doesn’t play continuously (it stops and starts while you’re watching), you may want to pause the video until the remainder loads to ensure smooth performance. JazakAllah khair.

The Kaaba is the first house of Allah (the Glorified and Exalted) built by Prophet Ibrahim (peace and blessings be upon him). Muslim, Christians, and Jews are related by being the descendents of Prophet Adam (peace and blessings be upon him). Muslims touch the Kaaba to feel closer to Allah (the Glorified and Exalted). Collective circumambulation of the Kaaba fosters unity between Muslims.
