These pictures of al-Hajar al-Aswad or black stone are 49 thousand megapixels. It took 50 hours to draw and create these photographs released by Saudi Arabia’s Royal Mosque and Prophet Mosque.

During this time a total of 1050 photos were taken and each photo was 160 gigabytes. It took 7 hours for the stone to be photographed. ‘It is important because it is unpredictable,’ said Afifi Al Akiti, a researcher for Islamic Studies affairs at the University of Oxford. He said that looking at the photos, it seems that it is not really black. This is the first time that a digital picture has been revealed by enlarging everything from a small black stone.
Muslims kiss black stone

Mecca is a spiritual center for Muslims around the world. If someone is born in the Muslim community, it is considered mandatory for him to go on Haj pilgrimage at least once in his life. Haj pilgrims reach the Kaaba, the holy shrine of the Muslims, and kiss the black stone in the eastern corner of the Kaaba. This stone may be small to see but it is very important. This stone is inlaid in a silver frame from all sides.

It is said that this black stone is a comet that came to Earth. In some other beliefs, it is also called a piece of the moon. The interesting thing is that the black stone of Kaaba which is considered to be the most sacred, is not mentioned in the Quran. There is a belief behind this that this black stone came into existence after the Prophet Mohammad sahib left the earth. However this black stone is mentioned in the hadith. In many hadiths this stone has been described as alive. Those who go on Haj kiss this stone and thank God.
