Why is the Kabaah loved?

Question ID: 38152

Assalamu Alaykum Mufti,
1)I am struggling alot with evil thoughts about the Kaabah.. i was taught and understand that ALLAH instructed Hazrat Adam(A.S) to build the Kaabah and Hazrat Ibrahim(A.S) rebuilt the Kaabah … it is also directly under the Arsh of ALLAH .. Mercy descends there and it is direction we face to pray .. what i am finding hard to understand (which i didnt when i was younger) but ever since i read an answer (on how to explain to Non Muslims)that we dont worship the Kaabah obviously but to explain to them it is merely the direction we face when praying for unity(i.e we all face the same direction).. so when in Makkah please explain to me the significance of looking at the Kaabah as i understand it is very important and beneficial.. it carries great reward and spiritual upliftment but this is what im struggling to understand .. if it just the direction we pray in .. am i correct in saying we make Tawaaf around the Kaabah because it is directly below the Arsh of ALLAH and Mercy descends there but then why do we look at the Kaabah with such love and amazement (the cloth and bricks are man-made), i was told just to look at the Kabah is Thawaab pls help i know these thoughts are not right
(1) Prohibited, illegal.
Mostly used in referance to actions as well as foods.
(2) Sacred/Holy – as in Masjid al-Haram (The sacred mosque) in Mecca and within it is the Kaaba.
True Form:
My question is why is the sacred Masjid have the meaning illegal or prohibited .. i heard that it is because everything except Ibaadat is forbidden at the Haram is this true ? if not whats the reason for calling it Masjid-al Haram?

The hadith states that 120 mercies descend on the Ka'bah, 60 for those making Tawaaf, 40 for those making Salaat and 20 for those looking at the Ka'bah, Quraan where Nabi (S.A.W) is buried and the pious is beneficial looking at a symbol of Islaam is rewarding.
There are many special prohibitions like no killing, no hunting in the boundries of the Harram.
