Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal is about to kiss the black stone at the Kabah in the Grand Mosque in Mecca.
The Black Stone is the eastern corner stone of the Kabah, the large black cube that lies in the center of Mecca.
Muslims believe that a brilliant white stone fell from heaven during the time of Adam and Eve. Over time, this stone turned black because of the sins which it absorbed. It is believed that Abraham found this rock and the Angel Gabriel brought it to him while he was building the Kabah.
To this day, the Black Stone is an object of reverence to Muslims. They turn east to face this Stone when they pray five times a day. During the pilgrimage to Mecca, they circle the Kabah and attempt to kiss the Black Stone as Muhammad once did. If they can’t get near to kiss it, Muslims point towards it.
The Black Stone is believed to absorb sins; the Muslims pray towards it, and they attempt to kiss it during pilgrimage. This sounds like worship to me.
Do Muslims worship the stone which has the ability to remove sins?
These people kiss the stone and worship it.. following their pagan worship is all it is. Nothing but a bunch of hypocrites.
