    Title: Kaabah - Kissing the stone

    Question: A few months ago I returned from my Hajj. According to my possibilities I fulfilled all the rituals of Hajj, but unfortunately could not kiss the sacred stone of the Ka’abah because a lot of people were pushing each other. After 1 week have returned from Hajj, I dreamed that many children were playing around the Ka’abah and when I wanted to kiss the stone, the kids would not let do because they were running from one side to the other of the Ka’abah, meanwhile a policeman appeared and ordered to stop children so I can kiss the stone.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 332/321/N=04/1436) You were right that to leave the kissing of Hajr-e-Aswad (the Black Stone) in order to avoid hurting people. It is sunnah to kiss Hajr-e-Aswad when it is possible and one has access to it, whereas it is mandatory for Muslims to avoid harming people. It is hoped that you would earn reward on your good intention.
