God does not make what humans can make. Human makes house on the land physically that God does not do. So, Al-Bai’ta (ٱلْبَيْتَ ) cannot be a physical house on the land on earth. Thus, the word Jaäl’naa ( جَعَلْنَا) in fact means as allowed (more than that of made). God allowed Ibrahim to develop Al-Bai’ta (ٱلْبَيْتَ ), the system or institution, meaning the system in the Deen by preaching truth, being a Hanif (the Truth Seeker, the Hanif) and spreading the monotheism and calling people to have a debate and dialogue, called the hajj at his place and feeding the poor during such hajj festival in the name of God and in remembrance of God. This was his Millat — his characteristics/hallmarks. He raised the foundation of the system or institution/ Al-Bai’ta (ٱلْبَيْتَ ), which the Messenger in the Quran was told to follow.
