السلام عليكم

I hope to know many things from the native arabs. Because, Islam sounds very interesting!

  1. Why all muslims pray with the body looking for Mekka?
  2. The 5 times of praying is released by the sun movement, and why 5 times?
  3. Why the Kaaba is important? I heard it takes all sins if touch the black stone, is it true?
  4. Why Mohammed is important to you? What he did?
  5. What do you think about Jesus?
For now is just it, maybe I will come to ask more. Thank you in advance :)

As for question (3):

The first part was answered before. As for the "Black Stone":It was put there by Prophet Ibrahim and Isma’eel (peace be upon them both) by the order of Almighty Allah, and the purpose of it was to indicate the beginning of tawaf (circumambulation of the Ka`bah).

Thus we as Muslims do not attach divine power to the stone. As `Umar Ibn Al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) is reported to have said: “You’re just a stone that does not benefit or harm anyone, and if I hadn’t seen the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) kissing you, I would have not done so."

As for question (2):There is no secret in the number of prayers. It is simply that they are related to the course of the day and relevant to the different states of nature (day and night) that are linked to the biological clock of any Muslim. Thus, the Muslim is in continues connection with God, throughout the different phases of the day.These five prayers were revealed to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) on the Israa’ and Mi`raj.

This is a very long question :) and since we're talking about religion, so we need to be precise, and thus research is needed before submitting any answer:

As for the first question:Facing the qiblah is first of all a test to our ability to obey the commands of God even when we fail short from understanding His wisdom. Muslims, as servants of God, are required to submit to Him.

Muslims face the Kabah because it is the first holy house ever built for mankind, established by Adam and raised by Abraham. But why the Kabah?Muslims do not face Madinah where lies the grave of the Prophet (peace be upon him) simply because we do not worship the Prophet. Another aspect is the fact that the qiblah is a sign of the spiritual unity of Muslims. At the time of Prayer, Muslims all over the world are lined in circles big and small facing one direction and feeling belonging to this center and belonging to each other.
