This holy stone is the eastern cornerstone of the Kaaba, the ancient stone building towards which all Muslims pray. Many Muslims believe that the stone (originally white but now black from absorbing the sins of man) fell from heaven during the time of Adam and Eve.

It's a holy stone, placed in Kaaba. It's a blessing for any Muslim to touch & kiss it. It's extremely difficult to reach to it during Hajj or Umrah season but in off season the ideal time to kiss it is mid night

One of the most visited place of the Grand Mosque. Always over crowded and have to be very careful especially the kids and the elderly in order not to be squeezed. But it is an amazing experience if you managed to kiss or even touched the stone.

Not easy to reach unfortunately but a great experience if you can. It can be very busy during tawaf and the best option is to go straight after prayer

I am grateful for having gone here. It was very very busy so if your elderly, a woman or you feel stuck in small spaces then be very very carful when you attempt to touch the Black Stone as it is always surrounded by many people. If you do not get to touch it physically then Allah swt will kbow... More

The most spiritual place on earth. Nothing feels so spiritual than being in AlHaram, and if you have the chance to kiss the black stone these days you are one of the most lucky persons; to do that I strongly recommend you go around 7-9 am, as it is usually less crowded.
