The Hadeeth means among many important points that people should come to Ali for guidance and following him, and he should never go to any one for guidance or following.

Worshiping Allah in obligatory Prayers is only accepted when you face the Ka'bah, and obeying Allah is only accepted when you follow Ali as the appointed divine leader after the Prophet by order of Allah (SAWA).


The status of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) and his Holy Progeny is higher than the status of Ka'bah and any one and any thing created by Allah (SAWA). The Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) is the best and the highest among the creatures of Allah (SWT). His holy Progeny are from him and their status is from his highest status.


The shape of Ka'ba has been taught to the Prophets who raised the walls of it by order from Allah (SWT). In the Hadeeth: The Ka'ba is beneath al-Bayt Al-Ma'mour in the sky, which is based on four Corners. Bayt Al-Ma'mour is beneath The A'rsh which is based also on four corners (Subhanallah, WAL Hamdulillah, wala elaha illallah, wallahu Akbar).

Ka'ba is the center of the whole world and all Muslims have to face its direction while praying or slaughtering an animal or burying a dead body. It's shape makes people in all the sides of the earth able to face its direction.


I did not find such narrations in our authentic books.

You can ask who claims that to give you his references if he has any reference. We can then examine his claim.
