« on: June 22, 2013, 06:16:25 AM »
ASSALAMUALYKUM,


  Is Ka'ba an asteroid. If it is, then is there any absolute proof?

I've been watching your posts really carefully
Short answer: yes
You really need to research every fact you read on the internet regarding Islam.

That's just the way it is.

According to Elsebeth Thomsen of the University of Copenhagen, it fell as a meteorite 6,000 years ago. In case you haven't been doing your homework, 6,000 years is the time of Abraham, as calculated by piecing together the bits, well, you'd have to read this:

(New Light on the Origin of the Holy Black Stone of the Ka'ba. Author: Thomsen, E. Journal: Meteoritics, volume 15, number 1, page 87)

""Stars" falling from the skies have been known since ancient times; rarely, stones are found that were tied to these "shooting stars". One such rock has been venerated by Islam (in its encased shrine in Mecca) for more than 1300 years. By the 19th Century, meteorites were identified correctly as samples from other parts of the Solar System. They are part of the nearly 500 tons of extraterrestrial rock material that reaches and enters the atmosphere each day. Most of that material is burned up by friction from the high speed of entry but meteoric dust can remain in the air and a very few individual blocks of material survive this passage to fall in the sea or on the ground as meteorites."

"The second city of Saudi Arabia is Mecca which contains the holiest shrine in Islam, a great plaza with a rectangular structure containing a meteorite that is considered to have fallen into the Muslim world directly from Heaven. Devout Muslims make the Hajj, a pilgrimage to this shrine required at least once in a lifetime. Here it is as seen in a Quickbird image:"

Yeah but Simonsen believed that because of the Wabar craters, who were believed to have been the result of meteorite impact 6000 years ago, but in 2004, those same craters were redated to 200-300 years....

Ande the link you gave about the historical Abraham suggests that he lived 2000 years before Christ (PBUH). (At the beginning it says that it is believed that Abraham lived 5-6 centuries before Christ but then, speaking about new evidence the dating changes)
