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.

Going to this holy area is one of the best trip your do in your life. Going in you feel your are walking on a cloud. Whenever I go since I was a young child this feeling grow differently and become more deep. Amazing you feel as if you are the only one there despite all the crowd. It is the journey that you wish as frequent as you want. It is between you and your God. Alhmdalillah.

The Black Stone better known as Ḥajar al-Aswad is one of cornerstone of the Kaaba. It is thought to be a heavenly and blissful type rock in origin. It existed in the Kaaba in pre-Islamic times and was placed into the Kaaba's wall by Prophet Muhammad (SAAS). Now attached to a silver frame in the side of the Kaaba. It looks like a stunning dark rock, polished smooth by the hands of millions of pilgrims touching it over the years. Pilgrims circling the Kaaba if possible, to stop and kiss the Black Stone, there is a soldier always on duty standing by the Black Stone to help keep crowd control.

This is a special stone in the wall of Kaaba. It is like any block in the middle of a wall, yet it has certain significance to muslims that it is almost impossible to reach to it due to overwelming crowds. It is thought that it is an angel in the form of a stone that witnessed the agreement between God and mankind spirits that in which they promised to worship him alone.
