Kaaba bar in Manhattan

Recommended Posts

I just got an email:

In the business area of MID TOWN MAN HATTAN in New York a new BAR is opened in the name of APPLE MECCA which is familiar to KAABA MAKKAH This bar will be used for supply of VINE and Drinks. The Muslims of New York are pressurizing Government of USA to not open this BAR.

Is that real ? Has anyone in NY seen this bar being constructed ?

No, it's not. This is just a case of some opportunistic 'muslims' taking advantage of emotional muslims.

They don't supply wine or alcohol, lol. It's an Apple Store that is in fact referred to as a 'bar'... they sell Apple tech products and services. Also, this is just an image while it was under construction. It has opened up now and is actually made of glass. Google it and check it out.

What's more alamaring, and what gets a lot less coverage and circulation via email forwards from muslims, is the absolutely horrendous shopping centres and buildings being constructed in the city of Makkah directly next to the Kaa'ba. Not sure how many people are aware of all the known-Israel funding companies like Starbucks and Marks&Spencer that will be operating and making money off hajis in the coming years.

I've received this alleged 'makkah bar' e-mail at least five or six times with everyone showing outrage and displeasure but have yet to see anyone even mention the projects under construction in the holy city.

LOL - this thing is still floating around? I could not believe my eyes when this was printed in a local news paper. They did not bother verifying any of the facts. It's not "Kaaba bar" as they mention it. Just Apple's store under construction.

    • Jazakallah khair. Thank you so much for telling me to read the Quran. I read the Quran to sleep and made dua to be in the right way and alhamdulilah I was blessed with a dream of the prophet telling me I am on the right path of shia. Jazak Allah khair!
    • Thank You so much. Alhamdulilah. I have been guided. Jazak Allah khair. I am shia and proud
    • As per my aql the punishment (qital) is not ok. I am a simple man. I find reasons in every thing. I have reason to believe in existence of God and not because my parents are Muslims. I have reason to believe on Muhammad S.A.W and Prophets A.S before that. I have reason to have what ever  belief i have. 
      What i am trying to say is that we all know and came across different ahadees being associated to Muhammad S.A.W which "aql" cant begin to comprehend that he could have said such a thing. So associating something to Imama A.S is not such a big deal for "historians". But as all sects of muslims agree on this, i presume its the rightful punishment but still it does not mean that i am ok with it. I think humans have time to repent till natural death. Obviously if Imam A.S have truly ruled this in particular matter then my emotions or aql is useless and that's the way to go. I was browsing through Quora when i came across this question by a non-muslim. "Does Quran says that kill a person that leaves Islam?" Now we claim that Quran is most complete and authentic book. Also "Surely, God does not shy away from teaching you truth" [33:53]. How do one answers a non believer ?
    • The four fingers in Arabic are considered "hand". But yes, you're correct. There are many misconceptions.
