Kaaba is not an Idol, its Qibla which means direction

First of all, Kaa'ba is not our focal point, but its our direction where every Muslim in the world prays in that direction. Like there is only 1 centre of the circle, Kaa'ba is centre and every Muslim prays facing that centre.

If Kaa'ba was our IDOL, people would not stand on the Kaa'ba. People use to stand on the Kaa'ba to give Azaan. You wouldnt dare to stand on your IDOLs (Hinduism- Prettier IDOLs or Murti's).

I hope that clears your misconception of Kaaba.
