    A stone set within a silver ring in the outer east corner of the Kaaba in Mecca. According to legend, the stone was brought to Abraham ( Ibrahim ) by the angel Gabriel while Abraham was building the Kaaba by God's command. During the hajj, pilgrims circumambulate the Kaaba and salute, touch, or kiss the stone, considered variously a symbol of the hereafter and divine presence.
