Al-Hajar Al-Aswad | The Black Stone – High Quality Photos

Contribute to Our Gallery

Al-Hajar Al-Aswad is situated on the south-eastern corner of the holy Ka‘bah which marks the starting and finishing point for circling the Ka‘bah (known as tawaaf). Today, only parts of the stone are present; consisting of 8 pieces of varying sizes. These are affixed to a larger stone, encased in a silver frame and attached to the corner of the Ka‘bah 1.5m above the ground.

The Prophet (PBUH) informed us of three main virtues of the Stone: 1) Allaah sent it down to earth from paradise whiter than milk; however the sins of mankind turned it black. 2) It will come on the Day of Judgement with two eyes with which it will see and a tongue with which it will speak and will testify for those who have touched it in truth and sincerity. 3) Touching the Stone is also one of the means by which Allaah erases sins.

Furthermore, the Black Stone is most renowned for being kissed by Muslims just as the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) did.
