Black Stone – الحجر الأسود

Posted on: May 16, 2008


Black Stone – الحجر الأسود 

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

The Black Stone called al-Hajar-ul-Aswad in Arabic is a Muslim object of reverence, which according to Islamic tradition dates back to the time of Adam and Eve. It is the eastern cornerstone of the Kaaba, the ancient sacred stone building towards which Muslims pray, in the center of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

The Stone is roughly 30 cm (12 in.) in diameter, and 1.5 meters (5 ft.) above the ground.

When pilgrims circle the Kaaba as part of the Tawaf ritual of the Hajj, many of them try, if possible, to stop and kiss the Black Stone, emulating the kiss that it received from the Islamic prophet Muhammad. If they cannot reach it, they are to point to it on each of their seven circuits around the Kaaba.

The Stone is broken into a number of pieces from damage which was inflicted during the Middle Ages. The pieces are held together by a silver frame, which is fastened by silver nails to the Stone.

Small History of Stone

the Stone fell from Heaven to show Adam[pbuh] and Eve where to build an altar and offer a sacrifice to God. The Altar became the first temple on Earth. Muslims believe that the stone was originally pure and dazzling white, but has since turned black because of the sins it has absorbed over the years. Islamic tradition holds that Adam’s[pbuh] altar and the stone were lost in the process of Noah’s Flood and forgotten. It was Abraham who found the Black Stone at the original site of Adam’s[pbuh] altar when the Archangel Gabriel revealed it to him. Abraham ordered his son–and the ancestor of Prophet Muhammad[pbuh]–Ishmael to build a new temple in which to imbed the Stone. This new temple is the Kaaba in Mecca.

Touching or kissing the Black Stone has a profound impact on the faithful as it is suppose to count in their favor on judgment day. that the Prophet said that it is the Right Hand of God on Earth.


1. The Black Stone was sent down by Allaah to this earth from Paradise.

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“The Black Stone came down from Paradise.”
(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 877; al-Nasaa’i, 2935. The hadeeth was classed as saheeh by al-Tirmidhi).

2. The Stone was whiter than milk, but the sins of the sons of Adam made it black.

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“When the Black Stone came down from Paradise, it was whiter than milk, but the sins of the sons of Adam made it black.”
(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 877; Ahmad, 2792. )

(a) Al-Mubaarakfoori said in al-Marqaah: This means, the sins of the sons of Adam who touched the stone, caused it to turn black. The hadeeth should be taken at face value, because there is no reason not to, either narrated in a report or by virtue of common sense.
(Tuhfat al-Ahwadhi, 3/525)

(b) Al-Muhibb al-Tabari said: The fact that it is black is a lesson for those who have insight. If sins can have this effect on an inanimate rock, then the effect they have on the heart is greater.
See Fath al-Baari, 3/463

3. The Black Stone will come forth on the Day of Resurrection and will testify in favour of those who touched it in truth.

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said concerning the Stone:

By Allaah, Allaah will bring it forth on the Day of Resurrection, and it will have two eyes with which it will see and a tongue with which it will speak, and it will testify in favour of those who touched it in sincerity.
Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 961; Ibn Maajah, 2944

(4) Touching the Stone is one of the things by means of which Allaah expiates for sins

the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say:

Touching them both [the Black Stone and al-Rukn al-Yamani] is an expiation for sins.
(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 959. This hadeeth was classed as hasan by al-Tirmidhi and as saheeh by al-Haakim (1/664). Al-Dhahabi agreed with him).

And Allaah knows best.

Dont know about all the religion stuff who was first who’s real or not but I do know one thing you better believe in the one and only God or what ever name you choose to use its only one supreme creater. Have a scientist approve or disapprove that.

It’s a pagan idol. Muslims are in utter idolatry. Look at it. It’s a huge vagina, it comes from sex worship. The idol originally was for Ba’al Peor (Lord of the Opening, as in Vagina). Arabs used to be polytheists and this was one of their gods’ idols, Muhammed wanted them to stop worshipping it but many wouldn’t stop so in order to keep the appearance of authority he instead commanded that Muslims should pray towards it 5 times a day. You Muslims out there need to repent and quit following after idol (worthless) Allah. Turn to the LIVING GOD YHWH and believe in His Son’s sacrifice on the tree 2000 years ago for you where He shed His blood for all of Y’sra’el and the rest of the world for the forgiveness of all sin and start obeying Him, guarding/keeping His commandments. DO IT NOW! Open up a Bible and start reading and ask and cry out to God to reveal Himself to you and teach you the Truth! He is real and is very capable of communicating with you and will! WAKE UP!

We already know God and Indeed We believe in God of Israel , to him we worship ..

Muslims don;t worship any stone or anything like that…We turn towards kaaba not black stone..

this is statement of Companion of Muhammad s.a.w

“No doubt, I know that you are a stone and can either harm anyone nor benefit anyone. Had I not seen Allah’s Messenger (Peace be upon him) kissing you, I would not have kissed you. Summarized Sahi Al-Bukhari, Al-Hajj, page 396 No. 808 on the Black Stone..

We already have article related to Black stone Myth kindly read it here…

Now,

Bible also says not to make image of any one in heaven yet Christian make Idol of jesus and bow down and worship him.

that called Idol worship ,

so suggest you read what Bible says about Idol worship and and worship God Alone.

The Pagan Origins of Islam

http://wikiislam.net/wiki/The_Pagan_Origins_of_Islam

I worship God alone bud but you’ve made your own god and made my God out to be a liar who changes His mind by associating Him with your idol. Most of Christianity is deceived just like you, so it’s no surprise that it is so since that was what my Master said would happen, that many would say He is the Messiah but they would deceive many and in the last days and when they say to Him “Master, Master!” He will say to them, “Go away! I never knew you, you who work LAWLESSNESS!”

Mattityahu 7:22 “Many shall say to Me in that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name?’
Mat 7:23 “And then I shall declare to them, ‘I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness/negation of the Law of Moshe!’

Mat 24:5 “For many shall come in My Name, saying I am the Messiah and they shall lead many astray.”

Guess what else my Master said.

Mat 7:13 Go in through the narrow gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many there are who go in through it.
Mat 7:14 Because narrow is the gate and constricted is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

Isn’t Islam today’s fastest growing religion? Hmmm… According to Yahushua (“Jesus”) whom Muslims claim to believe in that He was a true prophet Islam is a way that leads to destruction since it is a broad way. O but I guess now most likely according to you He probably never said this since it doesn’t fit with the Quran. Correct?

PS. Don’t bother telling me that Christianity is huge too and is a broad way. I know. That’s not a problem for me since the prophets, apostles and Anointed One never preached Christianity or most of it’s doctrines. They preached the only religion/devotion/worship which is God alone and walking in His Way, Torah, and His way out for us not walking in it previously if we are willing to repent. He preached giving our whole heart, life and might to Him, denying our fleshly desires and following Him, to make Him our only true affection.

Time to wake up bud! You on da broad road!

is Son’s sacrifice on the tree 2000 years ago for you

bible says the person is cursed who die on tree,was jesus cursed by God. ? do you believe he was hanged on tree.. ?

Like

Galatians 3:13 Messiah redeemed us from the curse of the Torah, having become a curse for us – for it has been written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs upon a tree.” (Deuteronomy 21:23.)

God, namely the Word of of God who is God took the punishment for Y’sra’el that she was supposed to receive for her disobedience so He took on flesh and came and took that curse of the Torah on Himself that she had so He could bring her back into the bond of the everlasting covenant and He also took did this for all the rest of the world who will receive the Light and they also can be forgiven, redeemed, sanctified and be reconciled back to God being atoned for by the blood of the Lamb/Red Heifer/Azazel Goat and be grafted in to the common wealth of Y’sra’el and partake of the same promises and covenants and the blessings that come with it. You can have this too. And I’m not talking about the fake political Zionist state of Israel today either. They are still blinded because they have had faith in the world and it’s help instead coming back to the covenant and faithfully obeying God and trusting in Him to rescue them because most of them most likely delight in evil.

I don’t know where you get your facts or predictions from, but if all or Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) mentioned something in the Quran or Haddith about something happening to Sri Lanka then I wouldn’t doubt it. It would be helpful if you could show me proof or evidence to back up your weird and random prediction. Surely, if there was something like that to happen then it would be one of many of Allah’s signs to mankind.

Wasn’t the black stone worshipped by Arab pagans n kaaba.doesnt it say n haadiths tht prophet Mohammed solved a dispute between arab tribes by asking them to put the stone in a piece of cloth n each carrying each end. Moreover wasn’t kaaba the old pagan temple.

After Prophets Abraham and Ismail there were many things that happened in the kabba and mostly all of the prophets after Abraham and Ismail were in Palestine. The Kabba was taken over by tribes that believed in idols and statues and crap. But after Prophet Isa who was the last prophet born in Palestine, there came our Messenger(pbuh) and he united all the polytheists with Islam. Also the Messenger(pbuh) did put the stone back in the kabba by resolving a problem with the tribal leaders.
