How many Ka’bahs are there?

Fatwaa ID: 1109

Asalamu’alaikum how many kaabas are there? Is there one in each heaven or is there just one in the seventh Heaven?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

There is the Ka’bah on the earth for people. Above that on the seventh heaven, there is another Ka’bah for the angels, known as al-Bayt al-Ma’moor. Some have suggested that there is a Ka’bah in each of the heavens. However, I was unable to find any reference to support that claim.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
