The Kaaba was built way before the prophet Muhammed.

It was built by ABRAHAM

In any forum I've written, religious offences are forbidden, so I guess the same is here, moreover because it's a world forum.
Some moderator will take measures (I hope).

btw: I respect religions other than mine, but this building is something I really cannot look at. For muslims: I underline that my opinion is about the aspect of the building intended as an architectural object, not as a religious symbol. If a christian church looks aesthetically ugly to me, I'd say it's ugly anyway, although I'm a christian.

Is all of the Kaaba regarded as built by Abraham, or only what's inside it? I know it's been covered with what is essentially the mother of all drapes, which is replaced at set intervals, but I always assumed the "box" beneath that drape contained the structure, rather than it being the structure itself. Could anybody fill me in on this?

the crescent moon is a symbol of some Ottoman (Turkish) nothing to do with Islam or the Arabs.

Kaaba really means cube, that is, the Kaaba is the cube itself. It is empty inside except a few columns. According to Wikipedia, the inside of Kaaba is cleaned twice a year by the Governor of Mecca and invited guests.

Seems to be taking a long time to finish the Tower on the left.

This is the largest building in the world in terms of area, so it takes time to furnish all the rooms, etc.
