I think that I am overthinking this but isn’t idols made by human to represent Allah to worship. And isn’t the Kabah man made to direct where we pray to worship Allah.
You have some serious issues!
Allah ordered man to build the Kaaba and told muslims to face it when praying! Besides, no one worships the Kaaba or asks it for help!
Allah told people NOT to associate others in worshiping Him and they disobeyed him and made these idols and worshipped it!
Where is the confusion?
