I understand that Ibrahim and his son Ismail build the Kaaba but how was worshiping Allah like? I ask this because the Kaaba was built before the Quran and before the rules of the 5 prayers were submitted to people. Did they used to perform Umrah? But doesn't Umrah require the 5 prayers?

Sorry for not knowing about this topic (I am still reading on Islam). Thank you!


In similar ways to how they worship Allah now, the Quran mentions Tawaf, which is a major ritual of Hajj and Umrah, and the pillars of Prayer like Qiyam, Sujood and Rukuh:

وإذ بوأنا لإبراهيم مكان البيت أن لا تشرك بي شيئا وطهر بيتي للطائفين والقائمين والركع السجود

And [mention, O Muhammad], when We designated for Abraham the site of the House, [saying], "Do not associate anything with Me and purify My House for those who perform Tawaf and those who stand [in prayer] and those who bow and prostrate.

Quran 22:26
