Maqam Ibrahim

(Station of Abraham)

Muslims believe (without proof) that this is the spot where Abraham used to perform prayers near the Kaba. They also believe he used it as a stepping stone to build the kaba.

It is located directly in front of the only door of the Kaba.

You can see the symbol of the crescent moon on top of the Maqam Ibrahim beside the Kaba, as well as every mosque in the world. The historical connection with pagan moon worship is obvious.
