Owner description: 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.

“Amazing moment”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

It was amazing moment when you can touch or kiss this stone. I was tried so hard to kissed it and alhamdulillah itvwas done. I felt amazing, smell something good Masya Allah...... You have to try to touch and kiss it. The best time to try is after dhuzur time where not too many people doing the tawaf compare to other shalah time. When you finish last circle of your tawaf try to get close and walk slowly until you get close.

“Smell good all the time”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

If you get a chance to touch the black stone, your hand will smell very nice for some time.
Try not going in rush times so you can be in an organized line.
A truly touching chilling holy place!

If you want to kiss it without fighting people. Just stand as close as possible before athan of Asar after athan all the people standing close to it get a chance to kiss it one by one.
