Kaaba’s cleansing

The first thing which Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) did after taking control on the Kaaba in 8 AH (630 CE) was the destruction of all the idol statues and removed all the paintings. But the building was left as it was. Thus, once more, the Kaaba, the House of God, was dedicated to the simple and pure worship of the one true God.

There was a huge disagreement between the tribes for the positioning of the black stone by there own hands so they’ll have the honor of placing it. Finally all of them agreed on a note that the first man entering the Haram will place the stone by his hand and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) entered the Haram and Prophet himself placed the stone.
