Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Is kissing the Holy Ka’bah during the rituals of Hajj or ‘Umrah halaal or haraam?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
What is prescribed is to kiss the Black Stone. It was proven that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) kissed the Black Stone, but he did not kiss any other part of the Holy Ka’bah.
And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
