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.

As others will push to touch it,
Truly special place and great reward but however how many incur multiple sins in harming others to go and touch/kiss it?

The stone from the heavens it’s hard to reach and kiss it. So most people kiss it from far as part of their umrah. I tried a couple of times to kiss it but it’s very difficult as people r pushing and for women I would not recommend as the ones who get in get out with their scarfs pulled off. I was able to touch the outer silver cover but not inside as people kept pushing. It’s not recommended to push and make ur way to do this Amal as it is against Islam to hurt someone and do something. Therefore I would recommend it only to men to go peacefully without hurting ur fellow brothers.

most people go crazy to try kiss/touch the stone, the guards might be overwhelmed with it, so they only watch for over possessive people but not helping with the lines. just try to do so with your own content.

The Black Stone or the Ka'aba is the direction towards which the Muslims around the world perform their daily prayers (Namaz).
