Religions which preach Idolatry as Sinful often end up in Idolatry.
That too of the founder,as in the case of Christianity,where people worship Idols of Jesus,Mary and a Symbol ,the Cross, +.
Islam , propounded as a Monistic or Single Reality based, we find Muslims worshipping at Darghas.
Jainism is performing Mahamasthaka Abhisheka for Vardhamana Mahaveera at Sravana Belagola.
Buddhism worships the Buddha in an Idol.
Judaism offers prayers to the Wall.
This is because human mind needs an object to focus, religious sanctions notwithstanding.
It is human Nature,Swabhava.
One of the sacred duties of A Muslim is visit to Mecca.
Millions visit Mecca and worship at the Kaaba.
I was curious as to how a Religion which decries idol all worship,permits worship at Kaaba.
It appears that Worship at Kaaba, touching and Kissing the Object is not allowed.
Here are excerpts and Link.
In the pictures you can clearly see people prostrating to Kabah. Allah the Great says,
“And to Allah prostrate all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, of the moving (living) creatures and the angels, and they are not proud.” (16:49)
Yet who do these polytheists prostrate to? They prostrate to Kabah. Another verse describes monotheists,
“And those who spend the night in worship of their Lord, prostrate and standing.” (25:64)
Allah the Great prohibited prostrating to His creation:
“And from among His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. prostrate yourselves not to the sun nor to the moon, but prostrate yourselves to Allah Who created them, if you (really) worship Him.” (41:37)
People stopped prostrating to sun and moon and instead started to prostrate to Kabah. They left one Shirk for another and refused to worship Allah the Great. These Muslim polytheists really dislike to worship Allah the great alone but worship with him Kabah. And those who disdain, dislike worship of Allah the Great and worship beside Him Kabah, graves, Saints, Imams, Prophets, Trees, Idols, Allah the great tells them,
“And your Lord says, “Call upon Me; I will respond to you.” Indeed, those who disdain My worship will enter hell [rendered] contemptible.“ (40:60)
A video example of Kabah worship is also available here. Please people are making Tawaf of Kabah. At 0:35 onwards you can see the polytheistic Muslims kissing, huging, clinging to Kabah and this is exactly same as what the Sufi’s and Shia’s do on to the graves of their saints. This is manifest Shirk and every Muwahid will agree that tawaf of Kabah, kissing, hugging, clinging, rubbing the beard and cheeks on walls of Kabah is Shirk.’
