The entire world is the creation of Allah, however, some places are considered more sacred and divine than others. For instance, prayers offered at Mecca and Madina carry more value and significance than those offered at an ordinary place. This is because some places are more close and sacred because of their origins or their history.For more details please visit the site below:

God is spiritual. In Heaven. You could be many light years away from earth and he would hear you pray. Muhammad is a liar, thief, genocidal murderer, and a pedophile. You should stop showering love on him. srsly

The concept is right, but the locations are wrong. The most spiritual place in the world is the Green River below Flaming Gorge dam at dawn, fly rod in hand.

I find it interesting that all the different religions and beliefs have their sacred places in which to pray, so different yet so much alike are we. I wonder why we cannot all learn to understand and respect one another as human beings.

Well that kinda sucks for all those that are in 'ordinary' places.
Talk about favoritism!

And to think I thought the creator/G-d heard prayers anywhere......

Personally I think they are heard best out in nature..

Actually someone told me the walking around in circles rewinds the clockwork spring that makes the earth rotate. I mean after Mohammed (pbuh)split the moon in two and then patched it back together again, they have been cursed for eternity to perform this annual ritual.

I guess we should be thankful

/sarcasm
