The history and building of Makkah is directly connected to Prophet Ibraaheem as he was the first person to settle his family in it when he left his wife Haajar and his son Ismaa’eel there in compliance with the command of Allaah for him to do so.
Imaam Al-Bukhaari reported on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbaas in the long narration in which the Prophet informed us that Ibraaheem once came with his wife Haajar and his son Ismaa’eel
who was still a suckling infant, from ancient Syria to Makkah. At that
time, Makkah had no water and nobody residing in it. Ibraaheem
took them both under the shade of a tree and left with them a bag of
dates and a flask of water, then headed back to ancient Syria. As he was
leaving, his wife Haajar called to him, saying: “Where are you going?

Allaah also says (what means): “And

the House, [saying] “Do not associate anything with Me and purify My
House for those who perform Tawaaf (circumambulation of the Ka’bah) and
those who stand [in prayer] and those who bow and prostrate.” [Quran 22:26]
