All muslim’s like Mecca, it’s the city where Mohamed was born, “Al Ka’ba” is located in Mecca, it was build by Ibrahim ans his son Ismail which are Mohamed ancestors (peace upon them), since it was built, people from around the word visit it to worship allah and accomplish “Al Hajj” (pilgrimage to Mecca) which is one of the five pillars of Islam.

1- La Mecca was selected as the Holy Place on earth for the Islam, the same as the Jerusalem temple was for the Jews.
2- Some thought the uncle of Muhammad should take his place, other thought his place should be taken by his best disciple.
3- The Jihad (Holy War); being willing to die for God gives momentum to any army: the same happened with the Jews under Joshua.
4- For the same reason Christianity was successful, or Buddhism. People like men who has clear ideas about life and after-life.Answer by PhoeniX
The pre-Islamic Arabs worshipped many deities. Among the gods they worshipped was Allah—probably derived from the monotheistic religions of Judaism and Christianity. Mecca was the center of this religion with its Ka’ba, or “Cube,” which served as the temple for the religion. In 630 Muhammad went back to Mecca and defeated the wealthy clans there, and established Mecca as the “capital,” so to speak, of Islam, although Medinah and Jerusalem also remained holy Islamic cities. He also destroyed all the icons of gods/goddesses which were man made.
The Glorious Qur’an says:
“As for those who divide, Their religion and break up, Into sects, thou hast, No part in them in the least: Their affair is with Allah: He will in the end, Tell them the truth, Of all that they did.”
The divisions that occured after the death of Muhammad (pbuh) were founded by ego maniacs who interpreted the teachings differently when that very action goes against the very nature of Islam.
The faith of Islam helped various Muslim peoples in their struggle to gain political freedom in the mid-20th century and the unity of Islam contributed to later political solidarity. The Holy Quran became the initial corner stone to be motivated into the realm of knowledge with the gratitude of reason to help understand, and faith to discover.

Between You & Allah
“Peace” is mentioned 58 times in the Holy Quran and it is certainly the most sought after condition for the life of every human on earth.
“Peace” is also one of the attributes which Allah has named Himself by in the Holy Quran:
“He is Allah beside Whom there is none worthy of worship, The King, The Holy, The Peace, The Watcher, The All Mighty, The Compeller, The Supreme. Glory be to Allah! He is above all that they try to associate with Him as partners.” [Holy Quran 59:23]
