Abstract: 

Undoubtedly, the design and establishment of Masjid-ol-Haram and Ka’abah, the Qiblah of the Muslim people, are among the simple yet complicated architectures. Simple in the sense that it presents a clear communicative space and complicated in that it is based on the verses of the holy Quran including its place of establishment, the pioneer architect, and its overall structure. Therefore, it is believed it will have the most spiritual influence on the pilgrims.
This article, searching through the Quranic verses and the narratives, aims to seek for the recognition of God’s specific will in the essence and idea of the Ka’abah and also attempts to understand how its constructors had built its shape from form. In doing so, a variety of recognitions would be scrutinized as the major part of man’s verity in perceiving that sacred place.
Further along, it is attempted to show the perceived truth about the form of the architecture of the Ka’abah in correspondence with the cases of temporal and local brought forth by the scientific intellect achieved in other buildings; so that is this way the structure and presence of this holy monument and the appreciation of the architect can be better understood; therefore, it becomes necessary to have a qualitative focus on other significant disciplines such as ontology, episteme and science.
Objectives:
1- Discovering the presentable perspective of the Ka’abah and its relation to the holy verses of Quran.
2- Understanding the influence of the history of Ka’abah on its architectural structure and its presentable appearance.
Questions:
1- What is the relationship between the intellectual and presentable apprehension of human beings and the structure of the Ka’abah?
2- How has the intellectual and presentable architecture of the Ka’abah influenced its overall structure and other architectural monuments?
