Praise to be allah who is creator of the world. First i would like to tell you that the shape of the ka'aba is cubic and thus means four sided,cubic..i would also like to tell you that before prophet(s.a.w.) arabs were pagans....they worshipped 360 idols but they were of different origin.Their origin came before the time of prophet noah(a.s.) when some puous men lived there.When they passed people made their paintings and then idols inorder to remember them.But slowly they started to worship them which continued generation to generation whose some impact was found in pagans...which is different from what you stated.and also the biggest hindu empire was of maurya under ashoka but it didn't exceeded beyond central asia and thus it is clear they never reached even close to midle east..sanskrit and all those languages have no link with arabic.......As arabic is a very old language.The above you stated is total a misconcept of yours which is needed to be corrected...I would have given you answer but they will not perfectly fit it....I recommend you to show your concerns to any Islamic scholar...he would give you perfect answer with full referances

Submitting....
